Matt has a fun, upbeat guitar style complemented by a smooth voice, which was voted by NBC San Diego as one of the city's "Top 10 Voices." His repertoire ranges from today's chart toppers, through the wide reaches of rock and roll, all the way back to the classic jazz of the 40's and before. Whether performing Bob Marley or Bob Dylan, John Mayer or Johnny Cash, Matt brings each song to life with his fresh acoustic arrangements and easy-to-listen-to sound.
