With lyric-driven songs steeped in folk, alt-country and blues, singer-songwriter Matt Spitko has become known for his soulful, dynamic vocals and beautifully written songs and arrangements. Influenced by the American song book, Harry Smith’s Anthology of American folk music and more contemporary singer-songwriters, Spitko developed a widely accessible songwriting style.
November 2015 marked the release of his debut LP, "At Love with War," (produced by Barrie Maguire) with the track "A Lot of Work to Do" used by MLB Network for the World Series that year. The album received play on WXPN, with appearances on Ian Zolitor's folk show and Dan Reed's show.
His sophomore effort, "Things We Tell Strangers" (2018) revealed a more mature artist, with tunes like ‘Shapeshifter’ drawing attention to themes of social justice, karma, and mental illness, as well as some good old love songs.
The band has toured regionally and beyond, with appearances at Sly Fox Can Jam, UpFest, The Rock Boat’s Midnight Lyrics, and opened for the likes of Eddie Money among others.
Spitko is currently finishing a psychedelia-inspired EP with producer Matt Muir -- creatively titled “2020” -- to be released this summer.
