Album Notes
The ’69 Mets…Rocky…Rudy…Matty Z and the Brawlers…
Matty Z and the Brawlers!?!?

That’s right, folks, when you think of the long shot, of fighting for what is most important in life, and not stopping until you reach your goal, you will no longer think of Rocky or Rudy or the Amazin’s; no, you’ll think of Matty Z and the Brawlers. Bob Dylan says that “He ain’t busy being born is busy dyin’” and Matty Z and the Brawlers were born to play. The creative child of three different musical fathers, Matty Z and the Brawlers is the blood, sweat, and tears of Matt Zmigrodski, Joey Cassella, and Kevin Walters.

Their story starts humbly enough with New York native Matty Z making the move to the Garden State with college under his belt, his beautiful wife in hand, and a six-string by his side. After a quick ride on the information superhighway, Matty fed the musical fire by playing lead guitar for singer/songwriter Edgar. Although the Edgar folk/pop rock love affair was short lived, the connection Matty made with band mate Joey Cassella was not.

Drawing on their chemistry from the Edgar days, the boys remained friends through the years and kept in touch about life, writing songs, and maybe even putting together a record. The timing was never right, though, so they each pursued solo endeavors and played in their share of bands to keep busy.

In 2006, Matty was to debut as a solo act and contacted his old friend and collaborator Joey Cassella to round things out. Needing to add some punch behind the strings, Matty also brought Kevin Walters aboard. Although Matty had not played with Kevin in the past, the chemistry was immediate for two reasons: Kevin’s sheer brutality on the drums and his time in another band with Joey Cassella; the Fiona Sand Band.

Having been fighting the good fight separately for years, Matt, Joe, and Kevin decided that the only way for them was the Indie way, so they combined their respective lyrical and musical forces, put together a wide array of original compositions, and became Matty Z and the Brawlers.

The Matty Z and the Brawlers debut EP, “Take It Outside”, is a shake your bootie, down home good time and marks a new chapter in the brawl for a better life. The album will be available in early 2007 with shows in the New York/New Jersey/Metropolitan area to follow.

to write a review


Good old fashioned Rock N Roll!
Take It Outside is like a breath of fresh air in the original rock music scene. It's good old fashioned crank it up rattle the windows and piss off mom and dad garage rock. The production is amazingly clean but not so much as to polish off that rock edge. Set the CD player on repeat because this will leave you wanting more!


If you don't have this CD, a piece of your life is missing
If you don't have this CD, you're life is seriously missing something-a soundtrack. Matty Z has taken the everyday, the things we all go through, and put it to all to kick-ass music. Lyrics, or poetry, whatever you call it, there isnt one song on this CD (there should be more) that you won't think to yourself, "did he write that about me?" The music, and the tight-skill the band plays with, will have you hitting replay on your CD player for days. Pick this up; you won't regret it!

Walters, Kyle B.

It's one bad MOTHER!
This CD is the reason we're having a hot summer! Matty brought the heat when it came to writing and releasing 'Take It Outside.' And what can I say? You're gonna love it!



MattyZ and the Brawlers live up to their name
Matty Z and the Brawlers live up to their name and come out swinging with their debut album. From the stand up and fight of "Define the Stain" to the every working man's "I Am the Robot", the I've lived it and don't want to hear it from you "Bitch About Love" to the plaintive prayer of "Saint Anthony", this 4-song disc leaves you hungry for more of the pure, unadulterated rock sound missing from today's mainstream offerings.


Non-stop rock and roll!
After seeing Matty Z and the Brawlers live at Paul's Bar and Bowling, I bought a CD and haven't stopped listening to it yet! It's catchy, but it still sounds like good old rock and roll! If you like to sing in the car or rock out in your house, buy a CD and have fun! Can't wait to hear new songs!
