The Matchsellers

The Matchsellers

The Matchsellers are Andrew Morris and Julie Bates. The project began when Morris (Warsaw, Indiana) and Bates (Kansas City, MO) met in Leipzig, Germany. While working as ex-pats, the duo began musically reanalyzing the folk forms of their homeland in the decaying buildings of East Germany. In this environment, they developed a new kind of alternative bluegrass. The music is stuck somewhere between the electric blues of Chicago and the bluegrass of Kentucky, and has acquired the filth and abandonment of post-communist, ex-patriot life.
