Youth Model

For Matt Holmes, it’s been a long time coming. The man that’s been keeping the rock-steady rhythm behind many bands burning up the scene is finally stepping over the drum kit, clasping the mic and unleashing his own sound.

Having shared stages with acts like country superstar Corey Smith, platinum-selling singer/songwriter Edwin McCain, Carolina staples the Blue Dogs and Southern guitar-slingerTaylor Moore, Matt’s on track to continue rattling the Southeast.

The Latest LP "All New Scars", from his band Youth Model is a booming, ready-for-radio blend of pop and rock in the vein of The Black Keys, OKGO and The Lumineers. At times it’s been described as “rumbling, sweeping and imagery-laden,” while at other times just simply “sweet,” with a nod toward the female/male harmonies and contrast.

Holmes handled all songwriting and composing duties, as well as vocals, drums and other percussion. Columbia, SC siren, Laurel MacCallum, lent her vocals on the duets “Better Way” and "Break" while engineer, producer and recording ace Kenny McWilliams tracked bass, guitars, keys and backing vocals.

You can expect to see him and his band coming to a town near you soon.
