“The band would be jamming and I found myself off to the side scratching out lyrics on whatever piece of paper I could find. I’d never written a song before but I soon discovered that I had a lot to say and now I found a vehicle for the message. That was in 1990. Since then, not a day has gone bys by that I didn’t try to think of a line, chord progression or a song.”
Since 1990, Matt Taul has written and released CD’s with roots rockers, The Stubblefield Band. The 1995 release “Eating Crow” gave the band credibility on the Midwest rock scene. Their second release “Less Traveled” confirmed that the band was as skilled at song crafting as they were at performing. Their roots rock sound landed them on stages with The Little River Band, Johnny Johnson, Marshall Tucker Band, Georgia Satellites, Deavon Allman and many others. Taul started performing solo and with smaller groups after 2000 and his music began to lean more towards the Americana and Country scene. His influences progressed from the southern rockers of the 70’s and The Grateful Dead to the ex-rockers and songwriters from Texas and Nashville.
