The perks of being a STAR email member
The perks of being a STAR email member

As a station, STAR 102.5 does more than any other station I’ve worked for. We are very active at local events, local places, and very involved with artists. It is one of the things I love most about this station.

So on Monday we had an opportunity to meet and hear a new artist perform in an incredible setting. We invited members of the STAR email club to join us at the Science Center of Iowa to ‘Dig a New Artist’. Everyone got to enjoy some food from In The Bag and some drinks, while watching new artist Matt Hires perform a mini concert. Then everyone got to go check out the new exhibit feature Sue the T-Rex.

This was my first time meeting Matt, and I was floored by his talent. His new Forever EP is out this week on iTunes and his song ‘Restless Heart’ is the free download of the week! You can check out the video of his performance, and the pictures from the event HERE.

After his performance I had the chance to ask Matt some questions and you can listen to it below.
