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!
