Support Beans & Bullets: Troop Tribute Album by the Matt Poss Band

We are an Independent and Original Rockin’ Americana group who have shared the stage with some of country and rock’s biggest names and have played all over the world. That said, one of our biggest honors has been playing for our men and women of the armed forces.

Over the years we’ve collected stories from troops around the world and put those stories into songs like “Rolling Thunder”, released on 2008’s album Hinges, and “The Man Who Went Up The Mountain”, released on 2011’s album Buy The Ticket, Take The Ride. Now in 2012, we have gathered up a handful of those Troop inspired songs and, with your help, plan to put them together on one CD entitled “Beans and Bullets”. This album is not meant to glorify war, nor is it meant as a protest album. Rather, it hopefully tells the truth and sheds light on the experience of being a soldier in this modern world in complicated times. It is meant to be a tribute to the Troops.

Thank you for taking the time to read our story. Thank you for your support!

“The Matt Poss Band is what you get if you throw Zac Brown, Shooter Jennings, Eric Church and Blackberry Smoke into a blender…a Hi Octane Americana show with the grit of a Texas Roadhouse and the Soul of a Sunday Southern Tent Revival.”
– Chicago Sun Times

“One of the few truly original country/rock bands working in the Midwest today…They are putting Illinois on the country music map the old fashioned way – one city, one show, one fan at a time.”
– St. Louis Riverfront Times

“I love the back porch. But when you hear the confidence in these songs, the cleverness in their writing, it’s hard to imagine any back porch being a big enough stage. These songs simply knock down the fences. They blow the doors off…It feels like it’s time.”
– Chad Willenborg, Philidelphia

“The whole mixture works to perfection, and it’s a shame these boys call Illinois home. Nashville could use a good kick in the pants like these guys. But that’s good news for the rest of us here in the Midwest.”
– The Cincinnati City Beat

“Another link in the great chain of heartland rockers…a hybrid caught between Mellencamp and Steve Earle…”
– St. Louis Riverfront Times
