An award winning California Folk and Americana performing songwriter, Matt’s songs come together like roadside folk art sculptures made from found objects. He takes the familiar and the forgotten and casts them forth with his unique perspective. His live performances are laced with humor and stories as he befriends his audience and takes them on a visual and emotional journey over the course of an evening.

“Your songs are filled with a soulfulness, a rare quality in anyone who’s not suffered through being a professional. Congratulations, and thanks for reminding me that there’s hidden talent out there.”
