The band are Sarah Zimmermann and Justin Davis, a two-piece that occupy that sweet spot at the intersection of country, rock and blues, where all of the elements blend to form an authentically raw and rootsy sound that has a timeless and international appeal.

Striking Matches became the debut artist on the newly revived label, I.R.S. Nashville, and have toured with Train, Vince Gill, Ashley Monroe and Hunter Hayes. Although their debut album is a perfect fit in the landscape of today’s commercial music, it also stands out from the rest of the pack with its driving rhythms and simple yet artful production that’s designed to showcase the compelling harmonies, honest lyrics and innovative guitar playing.
