“We met in guitar class” is not a thing many people can say...but Sarah Zimmermann and Justin Davis performed together for the first time on the very same day they met...in guitar class.
Fast forward, following the international success of Striking Matches’ 2015 album “Nothing But The Silence”, produced by T-Bone Burnett, and 9 songs on TV’s “Nashville”, Davis and Zimmermann have teamed up with Kennedy Karate (BØRNS, Silver Sun Pickups) for their second LP, an album in a style they call “blues-pop” - an amalgamation of their blues and roots based guitar riffs, combined with pop melodies - due out this summer.
Striking Matches are gearing up for an international tour with dates in the US, UK, and Europe all throughout the summer and fall, along with the release of the new record.
