Mato's father, the late Greg Zephier, Sr., was a well-known and highly respected spiritual advisor and spokesperson for the International Indian Treaty Council. In addition to this leadership role, he was an accomplished musician and a member of the musical group, The Vanishing Americans. Formed by Greg and his brothers in the '60's, The Vanishing Americans toured nationally and shared bills with such legends as Bonnie Raitt. Besides being heavily influenced by the music his father and uncles were making, Mato was exposed to Greg's vast collection of blues records by legendary artists such as Jimi Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughan and B.B. King. Consequently, Mato embraced and began utilizing his own musical talent at a young age. With the experience, love and wisdom of their father to guide them, Mato, his brother, sister and cousin formed the band Indigenous while in their late teens.  and opening.... J.P. Soars & The Red Hots J.P. Soars & The Red Hots →JP Soars is not a typical blues guitarist. He has a diverse musical background that encompasses a multitude of influences. " I love T-bone Walker, Jesse May Hemphill, Wes Montgomery, Django Reinhardt, Muddy Waters, Johnny Guitar Watson, Guitar Slim and Louis Jordan. But I also love Tito Puente, Miles Davis, Hank Williams, Black Sabbath and Slayer." Soars toured the globe and recorded several records with some of the most extreme metal bands in the world before finding his home in the blues! It is these attributes that are giving Soars an instantaneously recognizable style. ……… "When I first heard JP Soars I knew right away that he was separate from the rest of the pack" Jimmy Thackery…… This is an album that will warm your blues heart as the nights draw in and get colder with a bit of Southern warmth and exciting guitar and vocals that are full of energy from the opening title track with its Southern Rock driving beat through to the last track Missin' Your Kissin'. - Liz Aiken (Blues Matters)
