Blueprints of the Heart / Bio

For years Blueprints of the Heart has provided listeners with great catchy tunes and meaningful lyrics. Their name has been floating around in the music world, and they have shared the stage with artists like Newsboys, The Afters, Ben Jelen, Cool Hand Luke, Dizmas, Needtobreathe, Neon Trees and many more. But there has always been a desire to break through the sea of today's pop-driven music scene and let their message be heard by a larger audience. With two albums under their belt with Blue Duck Records (2006s Adapted to the Sound and 2008s Someday, We Too Will Shine), Blueprints of the Heart has emerged after a short absence with a retooled line-up and a brand new sound. The band recently released their new EP, “Messages" in April 2012. Through many hardships and trials, the band has been blessed with a chance to make their dreams become a reality. With many new opportunities in the near-future, be prepared for Blueprints of the Heart to make a greater and wider impact on not only music but the world.

Born and raised in Springfield, Massachusetts, Matthew Szczepanek has toured the Western Mass and national scene for more than a decade. He had success with the metal band Stratia before venturing on his solo project Blueprints of the Heart in 2007. Matt eventually gathered more members and released two albums with indie label Blue Duck Records in 2006 and 2008 respectively titled Adapted to the Sound and Someday, We Too Will Shine. Matt is a seasoned songwriter, and his experience has proven to be invaluable while reestablishing Blueprints of the Heart. His great love of music continues to guide the band toward its much sought after success.

Hartford, Connecticut native Austin Feliciano hails from a family of talented, classically-trained musicians. The oldest sibling of seven (3 biological and 4 adopted) Austin has known all too well the responsibility of leading by example. Breaking into the music scene has been a long, arduous process, but his work ethic and dedication have remained true and firm. It has always been important to Austin that following ones dreams and diligently striving to realize them will inspire so many others to do the same. He views music as a gift to be shared with the masses, a means of therapy, and a source of healing.
