The Vault Sessions features intimate video recordings filmed live at NEPR's space in downtown Springfield, Massachusetts. The series features local and national musicians playing a short set in front of the architectural centerpiece of the station's headquarters - a room-sized vintage bank vault.

The Vault Sessions are produced by Kyle Homstead of Laudable Productions, with support from Aerial Camera Services and microphones by TELEFUNKEN Elektroakustik.

The Vault Sessions made its debut on Thursday with an acoustic set by Matthew Szlachetka, a Nashville-based musician with roots in western Massachusetts. Szlachetka's Americana aesthetic was recently highlighted in Rolling Stone where he was featured as one of the magazine's "ten new country artists to know in 2017."

He plays The Parlor Room in Northampton, Massachusetts on Saturday, April 29.
