Interview: Matthew Melton (The Bare Wires)
By Ruby Perez
Matthew Melton knows how to keep the ball rolling. Only a month after Bare Wiresʼ final tour, he’s completed the band’s final record, started an entirely new band, and has two singles set for release on his Fuzz City Records label. Once a self- proclaimed slacker, Melton has done a little growing and is headed toward big things.
“Iʼm kind of ready to come out of the garage, so to speak. Not ʻsettle downʼ but letʼs say Iʼm not as attracted to the slacker lifestyle that sort of ended up defining Bare Wires,” says Melton. “Donʼt get me wrong, I love hitting the open road. There is no better feeling than being on tour, but I feel like Iʼm ready to come at it from a little more calculated angle rather than just grinding down the highway with the guitar cable hanging out the door.”
