Hailing from Palestine, Texas Blacktop Mojo was formed by vocalist Matt James and guitarist Nathan Gillis, in 2014. The band came to overnight success with their cover of Aerosmith’s “Dream On”. James’ vocals, and the bands powerful riffs mixed with Southern Rock influences bring a distinct sound. I recall when I first heard the rendition of “Dream On” James’ vocals were so big, so soulful, and I stopped in my tracks. I became an instant Blacktop Mojo fan and was fortunate to be able to chat with Matt James about the formation of the band, and new material that the band is slated to release this year.
