A troubadour, a poet with a guitar, a stage banter-conversationalist - Matt’s songwriting paints pictures with words, often drawing inspiration from classic works of literature or simply spinning new original stories in song. Matt draws audiences in with engaging stories and interaction, while shining the spotlight on the lyrical strength of his songs. And, when joined by his band Vintage Heart, the poignant lyrics meet expressive strings and driving percussion to make orchestral folk songs that rewards repeated listens. The result is a pleasing sound that recalls wordsmiths like Denison Witmer, Iron & Wine, and James Taylor.
“Warm sound & heartfelt lyrics. If you are a fan of Josh Ritter give a listen to Matt!”
- Helen Leicht, WXPN Philadelphia
"Matt really has a way with words. He puts poetry to music really rather than simply writing songs. Very beautiful writing."
- Red Line Roots, Boston
