Matt Nelson + Adam Lion

Matt Nelson + Adam Lion are a non-idiomatic improvising double bass and percussion duo from a burgeoning experimental music scene in Knoxville that is merging contemporary concert music, noise, jazz and free improvisation- an inevitable civic consequence from hosting Big Ears. They are regular performers at the Pilot Light (Knoxville,) and have also been featured at the University of Richmond, the FMRL Series (Nashville,) and the Fuse Factory (Columbus.) Their recording “Observations” will be released through the Park70 label early this year.
