Matt was given the DIY Spotlight in the March/April 2005 issue of Performing Songwriter Magazine.
“His songs have a childlike quality, a youthful sense of humor that in lesser hands might come off as downright silly….his wordplay is deceptively sly and, like the best tunesmiths, his melodies are remarkably direct and simple.”-Jim Caligiuri, No Depression
“…songs wrapped around rootsy arrangements so casually perfect that you’ll need a twelve step group to dislodge your ears from the sheer pleasure.”-Sing Out! Magazine
“I feel like I should just save a spot on my end of year list every year for whatever Matt the Electrician has done.”-PopMatters.com, Terry Sawyer’s Best-of-2003 list
"Matt the Electrician proves singer/songwriters can be funny without being clowns and thoughtful without being overwrought."-Brian Baker, Amplifier
Matt stays busy gigging all over the country, and has recently toured as support with Bob Schneider, The Weepies, and Melissa Ferrick.
