Matthew Larsen has been a member of the vibrant Western Massachusetts music scene for a few decades, attracting audiences with introspective piano rock songs. Sometimes short, quiet and sweet, and other times building into wall-of-sound Hotel-California-like anthems, Matthew’s songs often recall serious health issues (Matthew underwent a stem cell transplant at Dana Farber Cancer Institute in Boston in 2005). Greg Saulmon, Alex Peterson and a rotating cast of supporting musicians join Matthew on stage to contribute multi-part harmonies and quiet percussion.
Matthew and Greg coordinate the Dark Dining Room House Concert Series. Greg is also an avid photographer, authoring The Birds Downtown and producing news content for a prominent Western Mass newspaper.
