From Abilene, Matt began playing guitar in High School and studied under Doug Roysdon.

They now have 3 boys that keep them very busy!

What does AKA mean?

When Logan and LaSeur began playing live music, they tried to think of a name for the act. After weeks of thought and getting nowhere, AKA (also known as) was created which has allowed them to have fun on stage by changing their stage persona from time to time during their shows. Many of the stage names come from fans, but most, off the top of their heads. Do you have a good AKA name for them to use?

The music of AKA is as diverse as it gets. From Stevie Ray Vaughn to Bobby Darin to Johnny Cash, their cover material is vast. Their original music is also varied and unique. With Country, Folk, Blues, Rock, and even Swing, it's hard to put a label on AKA!
