Comin’ in hot in 2017, straight from the backwoods of East Texas with EJ Mathews – King of the Barnyard. This release finds EJ spreading his wings with a gang of great musicians including the great Chuck “Popcorn” Louden on drums. This release also backs up nicely to EJ’s award of Breakout Artist of 2017 in Living Blues Magazine. It’s dirty and sometimes soft but always straight from the soul of this great songwriter.
Ej and Janky became friends and often play shows together.
The artwork was commissioned by extremely prolific, Dallas artist Clay Stinnett. This CD was produced by EJ Mathews and Janky and is on the ReverbUnit Record Label.
