Matty Simpson’s style has been called an eclectic mix of rock and roll with rhythm and blues.
His influences include Nirvana, Bob Dylan, Van Morrison, Kate Bush and so many others. His parents love for world travel and music provided a home full of exotic instruments which had a profound impact on his songwriting style.
While playing and teaching in Port Dover, Ontario, he was introduced to Canadian singer-songwriter, Fred Eaglesmith. Matty spent the next ten years as a full-time touring sideman playing guitar, banjo and keys as part of the Fred Eaglesmith Travelling Show. He traveled around the world playing hundred of diverse venues such as The Bluebird Cafe, the Delbert McClinton Blues Cruise and even an appearance on the David Letterman Show.
Matty's ability to come up with original compositions and that tastefully fit into any tune are an illustration of his musical expertise. His songs are a testament to the years of devotion to his craft yet their message remains relative to all of his listeners. His singing and vocal styles, which have been compared to musical greats such as Chris Cornell and Eddie Vedder, and his soulful melodies and thoughtful chord progressions will have you wanting to listen to his songs on repeat.
