“Troubadour? Singer-songwriter? Artist? Hell, I’m just a storyteller with a four-minute attention span and nervous hands!”
Matt calls himself “dark story-teller alt-folk with a smile.” Most of his songs come from dreams, experiences and observations. A song may not be about him, but there is a strong personal element in there somewhere – his views, his ambitions or his morality. Matt’s first CD, “Drive-In Sky” is a musical collection of his song-stories, some true some fiction. His second CD, “Half Lucky,” was released in 2014, and indulges his rock side a little more. His third, “Seven Grackles” returns to a more folk/singer-songwriter tradition. Matt has published two books of his quick stories and observations, “Texas Takes: Unfocused Ramblings About Becoming a Texan,” and “No Vampires, No Zombies: A Bunch of Stories About Nearly Everything Else!”
I perform regularly around the Tucson area, as a solo artist, and as a player in other bands.
