Like pages out of his diary, the music of Matthew Inkala & the Hostages details the familiar joys and  heartache of love and lust; melancholy and merriment. With a mixture of sounds and genres, Matthew Inkala & the Hostages weave rock, blues, folk and country to create a distinct brand of  Americana. Their sound is equally suitable for booze-fueled bar hopping as it is for church picnics. The music is at once heartfelt and engaging; simultaneously danceable as it is contemplative.
