Mat Wilson

I came into this world in 1985. I started playing guitar at 8 years old. By the time I was 15, I started pulling frets and learning the world of stringed instrument repair. I apprenticed for a few years, and eventually went to a guitar building school in Atlanta, GA where I became a certified Luthier. In Atlanta, I lived with and worked for blues guitarist Sean Costello, as a guitar tech and road manager. Through Sean, I had a chance to tech for Hubert Sumlin (unmistakable guitarist for Howlin' Wolf), and performed countless repairs for musicians around Atlanta. I had played in a punk rock band for a few of my younger years, and quickly found blues to be the struggle music of choice. After I honed my fingerstyle playing and moved back to St Louis, I started a group called the Rum Drum Ramblers.  Known for gigging on the street and in clubs all over town, we play a mix of pre-war and post-war style blues, and record all originals.
