In an electrifying blend of musical genres, Mike Matney unveils his latest single, "All Fired Up," a track that seamlessly merges the heart of blues, the groove of funk, the energy of hard rock, and the intensity of heavy metal into one groundbreaking sound. Hailing from Virginia, where he resides in a serene log cabin on a farm, Matney's journey in music has been anything but ordinary. Having brushed shoulders with rock legends and influenced by giants like Billy Gibbons, Frank Marino, Pat Travers, and Robin Trower, Matney's musical voyage has been rich and diverse. "All Fired Up" is a testament to this journey, produced by the acclaimed multi-platinum producer/artist Stevie Salas, known for his work with icons such as Mick Jagger and Rod Stewart.

Describing the single, Matney shares, "All Fired Up is about reveling in the confidence of a night out, charged with energy and ready to conquer. Its hypnotic beat and relentless drive promise to transport you." This track does not just stand out for its musicality but also encapsulates the essence of Matney's life experiences, drawing from his roots in rural Virginia, his battles with personal demons, and the salvation he found in music and faith.

As a reflection of Matney's eclectic influences and personal journey, "All Fired Up" carries the spirit of southern rock legends like ZZ Top, while also being deeply personal. It's a beacon of hope for those facing their own struggles, symbolizing the power of music to guide one back to light. The single marks the beginning of an eagerly awaited album that promises to resonate with fans across genres and generations.

Matney's musical prowess was evident from a young age, starting piano lessons at six and quickly moving to the guitar by eight. His passion led him to Nashville, where his career took off, playing in bands, interning at Asylum Records, and eventually earning a music degree and a degree in recording industry management from Middle Tennessee State University. His notable stint with the band Tabu and his work with David Allan Coe are highlights of a career that's been as diverse as his musical taste.

Teaming up with Stevie Salas for his latest album, Matney is set to captivate audiences with his unique blend of sounds. Recorded at Assembly Line studios in Austin, Texas, with Salas on guitar, Matt Novensky on bass, and Matney's unmistakable vocals and guitar, the album is poised to make a significant impact on the rock scene.

"All Fired Up" is now available across all platforms via Roulette Records, offering a glimpse into the compelling world of Mike Matney's music. It's more than just a song; it's an experience, a journey, and a statement from a musician who's lived through the highs and lows and come out all fired up.
