American Musican Mattiel Brown grew up on a five-acre farm in rural Brooks, Georgia, As an adolescent, Brown delighted in the â€˜60s folk and pop of her motherâ€™s limited vinyl collection: Donovan, Peter Paul and Mary, and Joan Baez. As an adult, relocated in neighbouring Atlanta, sheâ€™d sing along to the radio on the long drives to work: Screaminâ€™ Jay Hawkins, Andre 3000, Dylan, Marc Bolan, Sister Rosetta Tharpe, and Jack White.
Mattielâ€™s sound might borrow from the past, but their art direction - Brownâ€™s inspiring handiwork, of course â€“ is decidedly forward-thinking, all colour block aesthetics (Ã¡ la the White Stripes) and artful, design-savvy music videos.
