Major Matt Mason USA

Major Matt Mason USA is the performing name of Matt Roth, a musician and record producer, active in the anti-folk and DIY music scene of New York's East Village.

A native of Shawnee, Kansas, Roth moved to New York in the early 1990s, where he received his new name, based on the action figure Major Matt Mason. He has established Olive Juice Music, which is a recording studio, independent record label, and online record shop, headquartered in his apartment in the Lower East Side.

In addition to his work as a solo performer, he is also a member of the bands Schwervon! (a rock duo featuring Roth's longtime partner Nan Turner) and Kansas State Flower. Mason has toured extensively throughout the US and Europe with Schwervon! and as a solo performer. In 2012 Matt moved back to Shawnee, Kansas. His most recent band project Broken Heart Syndrome features Pat Tomek of The Rainmakers on drums.
