Matt Lorenz [The Suitcase Junket] was raised in Cavendish, Vermont. He learned to sing by copying his sister Kate. Lorenz graduated from Hampshire College in Amherst, Massachusetts, in 2004, having taught himself to throat-sing, inspired by a South Indian cooking class. On moving day, he pulled a guitar, filled with mold and worse for wear, from a dorm dumpster. He fixed it up and started pulling songs out of it. That was the beginning. Since then, The Suitcase Junket has built a powerful fan base in his native New England and far beyond, playing numerous festivals and winning awards. His music puts him in the company of artists working the border of Americana and rock -- Shovels & Rope, M. Ward, Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeroes, Sam Amidon, Alabama Shakes, and The Record Company.
