“Don’t be picky, just play. Play music with others as often as you can, because that is where you learn to communicate and collaborate.”
Guitarist/bassist Andrew Mathews leads by example when it comes to this piece of advice. At 29-years-old, Mathews plays in five bands here in our region. I sat down with him recently to learn more about the metal and hardcore scenes in the Roanoke area, and what drives him to stay so active.
