He Did The Math

Reilly Smith • Apr 13 2017

Math and art allegedly don't go together.

LBRY chat regular Matt Sokol begs to differ. One of the first musicians on the LBRY scene, Mr. Sokol's dream beats and math rock background feel right at home on LBRY.

SLUG by Matt Sokol

A music industry veteran of ten years, Sokol shares an inspiring vision for the future of musicians on LBRY--one much more profitable for the artist than YouTube, Soundcloud or Spotify. He's played the role of frantic shred-drummer in the math rock bands Good Citizens, MEGA SHRUB, and Oculesics.

His chopped up vocals, abstract drum beats, and soothing guitars from his upcoming solo debut will be rolling onto his LBRY channel lbry://@heymattsokol as soon as he finishes doing the math for it.
