Spider John Koerner
"Spider" John Koerner, traditional American folk and country blues musician, rhythmic guitarist, song-crafter, singer, and humorist, shapes his musical style from a solid foundation of study of the old blues masters, respect for the traditional song, and a firm command of his source material.
Javier Matos
Javier and the blues became buddies in 1978 when he discovered his father's record collection. He has been playing blues professionally since 1992. His career began in Minneapolis where he quit his job and devoted his time to studying the styles of the early blues patriarchs such as Robert Johnson, Muddy Waters, Little Walter, and many more.

In 1999 he signed to Storyville Records. In May 2000 he released his debut record "Comin' Home" under the stage name Jake Matson. That same year he met renowned drummer Bill Bateman of The Blasters and The Red Devils, and won best blues band in the city of Anchorage, Alaska.

An accomplished songwriter, Javier's music was picked up by Rescue Records out of Pasadena, CA, who placed several of his songs in national television. His music was featured on the hit shows Breaking Bad and Friday Night Lights.

Javier has performed in hundreds of venues across the United States and continues to make blues and early American music his life's work.
