Mat D and the Profane Saints with special guest Chris Meck and the Gulty Birds

"It’s a crying shame that the world at large isn’t familiar with these guys yet. It’s time for that to change. Country, Americana, Southern rock, call it what you want to call it. I’ll just call it badass." Fred Phillips somethingelsereviews.com

Known as the "Hemingway of the Highway" to his fans, singer-songwriter Mathew deRiso has performed with band mates Kurt Mullins and Jeff Deignan as Mat D and the Profane Saints since 2006. The band has made a name for itself performing all original material ranging from Blues, Rock and Country that critics have hailed as "A Young Steve Earle with a more powerful set of Pipes" and "Hard Luck Americana" The band's 2014 album Holyoke was released to international critical acclaim and remained on Amazon.com's Top 20 Hot New Releases in Roots Rock and Alt. Country for six weeks.

The group's latest album The Mercy Road was released in August 2016. It earned the band two Album of the Year nods - Best Album of 2016 from The Troubadour Show in Europe and Best Americana/Southern Rock Album from Riot on the Set Radio in the US.

Chris Meck and the Gulty Birds

In addition to being one of Kansas City’s most respected guitarists, Chris Meck is hailed as the embodiment of the heart and soul of Kansas City’s roots-rock scene by many of his peers. — Bill Brownlee, The Kansas City Star

A longstanding pillar of Kansas City’s music community, Chris Meck has always been considered one of it’s finest guitarists. As a first call sideman and session ace, his blues based style slides effortlessly through genre barriers and lends an emotional gravity wherever he lands. After the passing of his wife and longtime musical partner Abigail Henderson in 2013, Chris took on a new role of singer/songwriter as well as guitarist, forming Chris Meck and The Guilty Birds.

In 2016, the band released its debut full length, “ It’s 4 a.m. Somewhere” to critical and popular praise, receiving significant airplay on more than sixty radio stations across the United States and into Europe. The group has supported prestigious national acts such as Los Lobos and Anderson East and been selected for musical festivals like Youbloom LA, Boulevardia, and Middle of The Map.

In January of 2018 longtime bassist and co-vocalist Calandra Ysquierdo was joined by drummer Tom Hudson, who also plays with Madisen Ward and Mama Bear. Hudson is a gifted percussionist, capable of either subtlety or bombast and possesses a deep well of musical knowledge to draw from. The trio will be releasing singles over the winter in preparation for a full length album release this summer.
