Snowblind Traveler’s Full-Length, Confederate Burial, Vinyl Release August 3, 2015 & West Coast Tour.
Listen & share the complete LP on Bandcamp.
Snowblind Traveler, Long Island born songwriter Matt Dorrien, plays the song of the common man. His music is inspired by the rolling expanse of middle America, the fog and lichen draped cathedral of redwoods of the northwest, the lulling whisper of a New England blizzard, the sorely disappointed, the dearly loved, the true and honest, those who are lost and forgotten, the living, dead, and eternal. For those who have ever slept under a blanket of Big Sur stars and drank whiskey until you forgot your own name: This is for you.
Select press for Confederate Burial:
“Full of haunting melodies, minimalist instrumentation and vocals always sounding like they’re searching for a sliver of hope to grasp onto, his latest release Confederate Burial is a worthy addition to the canon of the Great Modern Folk Scene.” The Bay Bridged
“Snowblind Traveler is the moniker used by Long Island native Matt Dorrien; the nomadic title steeped from a Dylan Thomas poem of the same name…Ben Burney’s varied talents and Papercuts’ Jason Quever’s engineering prowess make for some of the greatest sad songs that Elliott Smith never penned.” Impose Magazine
