The Beautiful and Damned
Matt Rouch, the self-proclaimed “Virginia-raised southpaw guitarist” just started a new band called Matt Rouch & The Noise Upstairs. But just weeks before he did that, he released his solo Americana album The Beautiful and Damned — a straight-forward, storytelling songwriter project. The guitarist and vocalist was in several bands on the east coast, but as a challenge he’s set his sights on captivating a room all alone with his guitar. The Beautiful and Damned comes across like a seasoned soloist’s album and with his recent additions of The Noise Upstairs, Rouch and company will be able to fully flush out the already thorough compositions in the live setting.
