The songwriting of this band is well crafted with vibrant, dynamic instrumentation and visually evoking lyrics. Matzen's raw songs are always inspired, rarely formulated and instinctively on-the-money with very little throw-away material. This combination of players serves to transform the songs into dynamic and harmonious compositions which vary from earthy to otherworldly. Influences range from Beatles, Django Reinhardt, Tom Waits, Violent Femmes, The Who, Zeppelin, and some other stuff.

What makes this band so very unique is the ability to create a signature sound amidst a stew of different approaches. Cookie cutters are for bakeries. FOYS pays homage to the great players of the past, present, and future.
