Guitar-wielding duo Sarah Zimmermann and Justin Davis--known together as Striking Matches--create an unexpected and unique sound that defies easy categorization.
Their music occupies that sweet spot at the intersection of country, rock, and blues, where all of the elements blend to form an authentically raw and rootsy sound that has a timeless and international appeal.
They agree that Civil-Wars-meets-Black Keys is the only descriptor that comes close to what they capture, but they don?t spend much time worrying about what box they fit in. If you need them, their separate or shared influences include Chicago, Steely Dan, Joni Mitchell, Otis Redding, Fleetwood Mac, and Jimmy Page?? A Taste Country.com
