Episode 002: Matt Pryor


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.
