Episode 002: Matt Pryor

MattPryor_BurtonWay2013

Welcome to Episode 002! This week, my guest is Matt Pryor of The Get Up Kids, The New Amsterdams and The Terrible Twos. Matt’s also an accomplished solo musician; you can pick up his new solo album, Wrist Slitter, here. Additionally, he’s a member of the service Downwrite, which connects fans and songwriters to create customized, commissioned songs.

I caught up with Matt backstage at The Ottobar in Baltimore to talk about his involvement with Downwrite and why songwriting is at times a bit like parenting.
