Matthew Douglas Simpson

is a strange brew. Danger-

ously observational,

painfully perceptive, a

representational artist,

painting with pen, pad, and

the grit that comes with

truth. Madly devoted to

honesty, he boldly and

bluntly shines a shattering

light on flawless facades,

including his own. Oh, and

he's an ordained minister.

"I write what I see", says

Simpson. “With the trials

of life as my inspiration,

my songs are a canvas filled

with love, affliction and the

hope that dwells between

the two."

Simpson's brand of rural route rock & roll connects with music fans across genre lines. Road trip tested and music snob approved, Matthew Douglas Simpson is every bit the hard-headed, sharp-tongued, scarred knuckled, romantic, trailer park troubadour needed in this world of formulaic, plastic, auto-tuned, swill.

So the next time your down on your luck and too proud to beg, Matthew Douglas Simpson will be there to sing about it, and if your lucky enough to find the man or woman of your dreams, heck, he can marry you too!
