THE DOCUMENTS ARE:
Matthew Larsen, who would love to spend each waking hour writing songs on the Marantz upright piano in his living room. His two time battle with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma was no picnic, but he’s a number of years out now and doing okay.
Greg Saulmon, who is a born journalist and photographer living in downtown Holyoke. He plays Mark Schwaber’s old electric guitar.
Alex Peterson, whose years of acapella singing are really coming in handy now. She plays bells, percussion, and sings beautiful things. She was born in Saudi Arabia and raised in Dubai.
Mark Schwaber, whose songwriting Matthew and Greg have always idolized. He was roped into playing drums, bass, and guitars on the first record and joined the band in 2014. Now he’s co-producing the second record in addition to playing all kinds of things on it.
GUEST DOCUMENTS / PAST DOCUMENTS / FRIENDS:
J.J O’Connell, an extraordinary world class drummer. His drums are the foundation in countless Massachusetts bands we love. Turns out he can sing exceptionally well, too, so we made him do that to our songs.
Steve Biegner, who is Matthew’s first cousin, former bandmate (Smokejumpers) and longtime musical collaborator. He is now a fancy classical singer in NYC, but occasionally joins The Documents on stage now and again.
Aric Bieganek, multi-instrumentalist, kindie rocker, and former bandmate (Northernly) who The Documents miss terribly now that he’s moved back to his homeland of Minnesota (Go Twins!). We’ll meet again some sunny day.
Rebekah Dutkiewicz, wonderful cellist and singer and former bandmate (Northernly) who played lovely cello sounds and sang on our first record. She plays on a few songs of our second record as well.
Jenifer Gelineau, who plays a mean violin and teaches music to tiny violinists in Holyoke. She has joined The Documents on stage a number of times.
