Biography

Matthew Meadows is a musician, programmer and retired classical dancer living outside of Seattle, WA. His solo EP, Etherati, was composed, performed and recorded between July, 2009 and December, 2010.

7 days after releasing Etherati to ReverbNation it was the #10 Seattle Alternative, #1027 globally. 7 days after that it was #5 in Seattle and moving up faster than 99% of all artists globally. Within 3 months two songs were licensed for TV/film/radio, online broadcasts reached millions of listeners and the album was selected by more than 20 FM/Podcast/Webzine channels. Artist and press reviews alike have been outstanding:

"The Turk" owns crushing guitar sounds, yet still displays Malmsteenian influences - Markus Ganzherrlich, Rock Metal Bands

“The entire album is off the hook.” - Rick Mizuno, Indies in Motion

"This guy's a tremendous guitarist, singer, and songwriter. He's just awesome." - Allen Cox, The Cox Music Show

Check him OUT...this is SUPERB energy! He’s got guitar chops that go far beyond “just metal” Dick Metcalf - Improvijazzation Nation

THE TURK = TONAL ORGASM...MORE TO COME Auriemma Jan 06

The Turk is giving me goosebumps Aqualyra Dec 30

Some of the sweetest riffs I've ever heard. The proverbial "tip of the hat to you" Sir Matthew Rick Frost Dec 28

Data acquired from ReverbNation and Jango indicates extremely high engagement metrics with fans and artists of multiple genres including metal, folk, and jazz. Women ages 35-44 and men ages 25-44 scored the highest engagement, some listening repeatedly to the entire EP. Regression models suggest continued organic growth in plays through Q2, 2011 as Etherati enters distribution.

Between October, 2009 and August, 2010 Matthew played guitar with the Seattle hard rock outfit Zombie Jihad, lead by guitarist Kenan Kelley and featuring vocalist Sean Aust, bassist Christian Mark Wilson, and drummer Jerry Willits.

While living and working in Austin between 1995 and 2005 Matthew played in the tech scene underground band H4ck, a power trio supported by bassist Daniel Easton and drummer Brett Hopkins.

Lyrics

The Mistress

Written By: Matthew Meadows


It's time to see the mistress
Get down on your knees
You don't want to miss this
Can't do what you please

When you see the mistress
Tell her what you need
She won't be the witness
She might let you bleed

The mistress is calling
I can't resist

It's time to please mistress
She will only tease
Nevermind your business
Bind you up and leave

Pray before the mistress
Pray for what you need
Don't expect forgiveness
For all your wicked deeds

The mistress is calling
I can't resist

Never fear the mistress
Leave behind your sleaze
She won't mind your distress
She'll put you at ease

When you leave the mistress
When you feel appeased
You may have an interest
In mistress as you please

The mistress is calling
I can't resist

Falling

Written By: Matthew Meadows

You're lonely
With his company
Wishing
You could come to me

This won't be easy I see
It's not between you and me

Only
If it's warm and free
Living
What this means to me

It's not the way things should be
Not between you and me

Something's going to change tonight
Never be the same
Blinded by the softest light
Nobody to blame

Catch me if I'm falling down
Tell me I'm okay
Words can find their way around
Tell me what to say

Falling
With another word
Broken
From the things I'd heard

This won't be easy I see
It's not between you and me

Reason
For my heart to sing
Leaving
Is the hardest thing

It's not the way things should be
Not between you and me

Something's going to change tonight
We'll never be the same
Blinded by the softest light
There's nobody to blame

Catch me if I'm falling down
Tell me I'm okay
Words can find their way around
Tell me what to say

Never
Saw the end today
Walking
Out the other way

This won't be easy I see
It's not between you and me

Crying
So your heart can roam
Leaving
For the long drive home

It's not the way things should be
Not between you and me

Something's going to change tonight
We'll never be the same
Blinded by the softest light
There's nobody to blame

Catch me if I'm falling down
Tell me I'm okay
Words can find their way around
Tell me what to say
