Matt Larson is determined to avoid the cliché of the sullen, self-involved singer song-writer, both in his music and in his on-stage demeanor. He is thought provoking yet fun, intelligent yet unpretentious. The optimistic, affable tone that typifies his music is bal-anced and enriched by an underlying complexity and subtlety that make his songs more than a fleeting, superficial pleasure.
In concert, he uses his humor, gregarious nature and thoroughly eclectic repertoire of cover tunes to awake and engage everyone within earshot, going so far as to make members of the audience the focus of the show. Matt has been known to accompany his vocals with acoustic guitar, piano, loops, programming, banjo and mandolin. But whatever instrument he chooses, it is the warmth and wit expressed through his voice that reaches out and draws his audience in.
