"Hard-luck Americana" That's the best description of Singer-Songwriter Mathew deRiso aka Mat D. Performing with band mates the Profane Saints since 2006, the band has made a name for itself performing all original material ranging from Alt. Country, Southern Rock, Blues and Rockabilly that critics have hailed as "Hemingway of the Highway", "A Young Steve Earle with a more powerful set of Pipes" and "a soundtrack for a one way trip to Vegas in a bus full of strippers" Jim Pipkin, and independent contributor to Hickory Wind.org writes "I've been in and around music and the business of music, since the early 1970's. In all that time I've heard a lot of bad music, a lot of good music but very little GREAT music. This is GREAT music; well written, well played, solidly produced...from beginning to end the finest example of Americana Rockabilly I have ever heard... It stacks up with Haggard, Johnny Cash, Elvis, and kicks the liver out of most major label attempts in this genre."
