Wait... what is Live Looping?

Live looping is the art of recording layers upon layers of sound live in real-time in front of an audience.

No pressure, right? 

The outcome: An entire performance created with just a single musician. 

By building percussive and melodic layers, Matt perfectly crafts a multi-part arrangement through the use of technology and performance skill. 

Bonus: He somehow manages to sing & engage a crowd too.

Venue and Event Reviews

The Crazy Diamond Club

"I first saw Matt performing in Traverse City and was mesmerized by his talent. I jumped at the opportunity to have him play at my bar. He was the first live music event we hosted since the pandemic. I wish I could explain in words what the experience was like. Matt lit up the crowd. His energy and talent radiated and filled the room with light. It's been weeks and people are still buzzing! We can't wait to have him back" - Lynae, Owner of The Crazy Diamond.

About Matt's Sound

In his words: "If Radiohead tried writing songs for Martin Sexton. With James Morrison as the feat. artist, and eventually covered by a 90's grunge singer on his    come back tour." 

Matt grew up on the Beatles, Motown and Paul Simon, until finding "Seattle" on his own. He adores Sam Cooke and Tom Waits, and "struggles" to hide his love for melodic hip hop. 

When he isn't working on his own original album and crafting his sound, Matt spends his "free time" entertaining the masses & supporting local business by entertaining live with covers he re-creates right then and there. He has been known to encourage the crowd to see if they can guess the song while he builds the loops, right before their ears.
