When Mattiel stopped by the World Cafe in 2019, I said there's something delightfully unique about their music. And that holds true on the duo's latest effort, Georgia Gothic. The album was recorded in a woodland cabin outside of Helen, Georgia, near the Blue Ridge Mountains. It was a faraway place where lead singer Mattiel Brown and producer Jonah Swilley could focus on writing. And what happens you write an album in seclusion? Where does it lead? To Jeff Goldblum, of course! The first single is an ode to the delightfully unique actor and musician, and it kicks off this mini-concert. Enjoy!
