“I started singing in a band in high school & taught myself to play guitar. I decided to invest in formal training so I joined chorus, and ultimately got accepted in my college’s music program for voice. I led church bands and played small local gigs until I took a break to spend time with my growing family. This year has brought many new musical opportunities, and the venues I’ve played locally have welcomed me with immense support and positive feedback. I draw inspiration from classic artists like The Beatles, Pink Floyd, & modern Indie artists like Death Cab for Cutie & Bon Iver.”
*Matt says he loves playing cover songs from a wide variety of genres with the set list as diverse as the audience.
