Easton native Matt LaMotte formed Speakeasy back in the late ‘90s with his friends Matt Herman and Anthony Allen when they were students at Washington & Lee University. They enjoyed a lot of success playing around the college town of Lexington, Virginia, from fraternity basements to coffee shops to a local high school charity show.
With LaMotte back on guitar and lead vocals, Herman on bass and keyboards, and Allen on drums, the trio has put the band back together again with the recent release of a self-titled EP.
The Talbot Spy describes Speakeasy’s collection of original songs as reflecting “a mix of influences from the ‘90s Alternative rock era that was their early inspiration, from the riffs-and-percussion legacy of Pearl Jam and Soundgarden to the melodicism of Green Day and Weezer. Also resonant are the more psychedelic sounds of The Doors, late Beatles and the Rolling Stones…”
