The Suitcase Junket

The Suitcase Junket is the moniker for multi-instrumentalist Matt Lorenz, who crafts or salvages most of the instruments that he performs live and on his albums. Aided by production from Steve Berlin of Los Lobos, Lorenz’s new release The End is New is musically diverse and lyrically dense with meaning. From environmentalism and the politicization of climate change to coping with loss and the unrelenting news cycle, The End Is New is a testament to Lorenz’s endless inventiveness and finding a deeper, more refined sound with each new album.
