Born in Ottawa, Ontario, musician Matt Powell began his musical quest at an early age and often performed to "sold out" audiences at family gatherings.
Often encouraged to "use his God-given talents" by his loving mother, also a lover of music, he also inherited a real competitiveness and athletic interest from his father who is an accomplished professional football player.
Matt really followed his heart and sang whenever he could. Before long, he was headhunted to be lead singer of an indie rock band.The band's success saw them record their first EP by the time he was 17 and receiving airplay on local radio stations.
Always in constant pursuit of his dreams, Matt continued to develop his craft and the band went on to record and perform live at a majority of Ottawa's biggest venues.
Following the band's decision to dissolve, Matt dove deeper into his passion and spent the following five years defining his musical identity while also experimenting with electronic music.
And now Matt is set to kick into the next phase of his very promising career! Since releasing 2 EPs "Changing Lanes" & "Year 1", he is back to basics and back to his roots as a singer/songwriter/musician, inspired by the likes of John Mayer, James Bay, Thomas Rhett and The Black Keys.
Inspired by life and his own experiences, Matt Powell's musical and vocal talent is surpassed only by his ability to take us on a journey where we each feel a personal connection and an intimacy with the artist.
