Matheson Celebrates 20 Years of Poi Dog Pondering

Celebrating 20 years together as a band is something that rarely happens in the music industry. Most bands that last that many years usually are a band only part of the time. When the band is not either writing, recording or touring, the members go their own directions and live their lives alone, keeping their musical lives and personal lives separate.

The secret behind the longevity of the band Poi Dog Pondering is somewhat different: During its history, the band has always had a rotating cast of musicians, with each album being made by a different line-up than the last. With this way of existing, Poi dog pondering has lasted 20 years and has created 7 albums that feature completely different sounds and styles that are unique to that album and its recording sessions.
