Hey everyone, my name is Matt. I am 26, from the Pacific Northwest; I have been playing guitar for almost 15 years now, self taught and lots of lessons, music school, and choral training as well. I have been writing ditties and songs for a long time, not much of a lyricist though. I love ALL music, and I mean EVERYTHING. As of lately though I have been looking for someone to collaborate on a project that is pop/rock/indie/folk... I know genres can get confusing so just to name some influences: The Weepies, John Mayer, Nickel Creek, Paula Cole, The Monkees, The Beatles, The Reign of Kindo, The Police, Mozart, Bartok, Bach, John Williams, Aerosmith, Aiofe O'Donovan, Sarah Jarosz,, Parker Millsap, Ryan Adams, Third Eye Blind
