015: Eliza Lutz: Matron Records: How a Musician is Cultivating the DIY Scene in New Mexico

This week I talk to Eliza Lutz who recently started her own record label in Santa Fe, New Mexico called Matron Records. She is a singer, songwriter, and guitar player who has been preforming and touring since high school. Her business savvy and finance prowess have allowed her to be a mentor to many bands and she’s incredibly passionate about helping bands understand money so that that can fund their art. We talk about her two bands, Future Scars and GRYGRDNS and discuss how GRYGRDNS has changed her idea of what it means to be feminine in the music industry.
