Showcasing Artist Name
William Matheny

Where are you from?
Morgantown, WV

How do you describe your band/sound?
Rock & Roll. I feel like it's large enough of an umbrella to cover everything that we do.

What do you like about Austin? or If this is your ]rst time here, what do you want to see in Austin?
I love Austin. We've spent quite a lot of time here. I believe this is my 5th SXSW and we've played there a lot otherwise. Kind of a cliched answer, but the food is great and it's nice to be down in the warm weather. the music isn't too bad either.

What other bands do you want to see at Ranch X Chicken Ranch or at the SXSW Festival?
It's always cool to see Mr. Lewis & the Funeral Five, Peelander Z, Five Eight. We'll be touring down there with our buddies Frontier Folk Nebraska, who are awesome. I really love Neal Pollack though. Is he playing this year? He blew my mind. That's some actual art.

What's next for you and/or your band?
After SXSW we're doing a bunch of support dates for our friend Tyler Childers. We'll actually be back in Austin in April at Stubb's for those shows. Bunches of touring over the summer and we're ]nishing up a new record that I'm very excited about.
