About as smooth as Appalachian shine, Matt Mullins & The Bringdowns sound was described best by reclusive local legend Benjie Saunders when saying it's like Uncle Tupelo and the Afghan Whigs got in a bar fight with Tom Waits over a joint, and there ain't nuthin' wrong with that .

This band knows a thing or two about being engulfed the West Virginia music scene as the members have been a part of the bands: Atomic Jo, What's Left, Poor Taters, The Boatmen, From The Future, Old School Abbey, Blistered Nifkin, and JC/BC . The group formed in late 2015 to track what was to be Matt Mullins' solo record, but the four quickly took notice that this was something different that they wanted to continue doing. Since then the band has been writing new material and booking a solid tour while awaiting their first release on August 12th, 2016. With an eclectic mix of genres that have influenced the group this is an alt-country sound has found a niche all its own.

Fueled by a driving rhythm section made up of drummer Dylan McInturff and bassist Bill Fraley, Stuart Hill creates sonic tapestries with his guitar that will leave you in awe. Add to that the lyrical prowess of raspy voiced singer/guitarist Matt Mullins and you have what the group feels to be the most honest music they have ever collectively created.
