Phosphorescent Played, Partied With Robert Plant on His Birthday

Singer-songwriter Matthew Houck sits down with Fuse at Austin City Limits Festival and shares his "murky" memories of the Led Zeppelin rock legend

While supporting his latest record—the incredible Muchacho—country-folk singer-songwriter Matthew Houck, aka Phosphorescent, had the distinguished honor of opening for Led Zeppelin singer Robert Plant.

"The Brooklyn Robert Plant show was amazing," Houck tells Fuse backstage at Austin City Limits Festival. "Robert Plant was a really great dude, really kind and generous and sweet. That one happened to fall on my birthday, so the last few hours are a little bit murky. But it seems like it was all a pretty good time."

For Phosphorescent's take on why his Muchacho track "Song for Zula" has hit a chord with so many listeners, check out the full video above. And to hear why the guitarist of soul-pop outfit Electric Guest got arrested in a Taco Bell at ACL 2013, check out our interview with the band's lead singer.
