HISTORY

Since his early days, joining singer/songwriter Lisa Loeb’s band Nine Stories spending years touring as her guitarist/keyboardist, not long after, Matt caught the attention of Matchbox Twenty. As a multi-instrumentalist, Matt soon joined the band for their forthcoming tour playing keyboards, guitar, pedal steel and mandolin for Matchbox Twenty’s “More Than Think You Are tour and hasn‘t looked back.

Playing on all subsequent Matchbox Twenty tours as well as joining Matchbox Twenty in the studio for their album “Exile On Mainstream” has allowed the artist to grow into a multi-instrumental force on and off stage. This led Matchbox Twenty frontman Rob Thomas making him a musical director for his solo project as well as additional touring support with Rob Thomas’ solo project as his M.D./guitarist/keyboardist from it’s inception to now.

During a Matchbox Twenty/Rob Thomas hiatus, Matt was hand-picked to join legendary Rod Stewart’s band for his “Still The Same” tour playing keyboards and guitar. Other artists Matt has had the pleasure of recording/touring with are Miley Cyrus, Gwen Stefani, Rosanne Cash as well as playing guitar for the Broadway shows of Bono and The Edge (Spider Man), Sting (The Last Ship) and Carole King (Beautiful).

BOOKING

While I do maintain a busy schedule of touring and recording sessions, I am always open to playing live and doing session work in general, so please feel free to reach out to me here for any projects you may be interested in having me play for. I do a lot of remote recording out of Trackpad Studio (my home studio), so I have the most flexibility there to get things recorded for you in a timely fashion. Thanks for taking a look here and feel free to reach to me with any work-related questions.

Thank you!
Matt
