Matt began playing guitar as a teenager in Massachusetts. He was taught by his older brother Brian. He kicked around in a few impromptu high school bands playing Aerosmith, Yes, Tom Petty and The Grateful Dead to name but a few. In college in the mid to late 1980's he played guitar and sang in one of South Florida's celebrated Dead cover bands - FORGOTTEN SPACE.
Moving to Berkeley California in 1990 he joined The Spodee Odees - a bluegrass band and played some of California's hot spots all over The Bay Area including Stanford's Frost Amphitheater.
After they dissolved Matt moved to the Big Island of Hawai'i where he helped form the acoustic group, LOST AT SEA with Sarah and Tim Crews. They released one recording made in a cabin on the side of Kilauea volcano.
Moving back to San Francisco in 1996 he helped re-form The Spodee Odees as a big, jamming psychedelic, festival band. They released the much acclaimed CD titled, "Spo What?" They peaked when performing at 1999's Haight Ashbury Music Fair opening for Noel Redding's Band (Jimi Hendrix). Try following Noel's blistering set closer - "Hey Joe" in front of 10,000 fans! A great time was had as Noel regaled us all of incredible stories of Jimi at the jamming after party.
After a brief stint owning his own coffee roasting business Matt moved to Western Massachusetts where he recorded his first solo CD titled, "A Day in the Sun" released on Kidman Zeale Records and available on itunes.com and CDBaby.com.
Now just back from the bayous of Louisiana where he worked on the BP oil spill cleanup, Matt is putting the finishing touches on a new batch of songs. ENJOY!

For 738 days, *Julia Butterfly Hill *lived in the canopy of an ancient
redwood tree, called Luna, to help make the world aware of the plight of
ancient forests. Her courageous act of civil disobedience gained
international attention for the redwoods as well as other environmental
and social justice issues, and is chronicled in her book /The Legacy of
Luna: The Story of a Tree, a Woman, and the Struggle to Save the
Redwoods/. Julia, with the great help of steelworkers and
environmentalists, successfully negotiated to permanently protect the
1,000 year-old tree and a nearly three- acre buffer zone. Her message
of hope, empowerment, and love and respect for all life has inspired
millions of people worldwide to take action in their own communities.
*Mark Morey* is a creative artist, visionary educator, and cultural
engineer who designs holistic communities with timeless native

awareness movement in the Northeast that affects the lives of over 7,000
adults and children today. He has facilitated wilderness survival and
spiritual passages for teens and adults around the world for the past
