The Suitcase Junket is American one-man band Matt Lorenz from Vermont. Located in Amherst, MA, Lorenz is a Maker of Many Things, including but not limited to music, wine, and public art. The Suitcase Junket is the name of this Rusty Belle member’s side project. Featuring a suitcase bass drum with washboard underfoot, a hi-hat and an old gas can rigged up to a foot pedal and a beat-up junker guitar saved from the trash, Lorenz’s instruments are the product of crafty, heartfelt salvaging. This is fitting for music that expresses the emotion of one who has been repeatedly tossed and saved. This past January saw the release of his first album, “Sever and Lift,” which he recorded in Greenfield. Read more on Last.fm.
