Matt Skellenger / Bio

Electric bassist Matt Skellenger has always been an exception to the rules. By combining forward thinking creativity, progressive techniques and natural musicality, Skellenger displays a uniquely identifiable sound. Born and raised in Denver, CO., Matt has been composing, performing, teaching, and recording in the Front Range for over 19 years. In 2002, he earned a B. A. in Music from Metropolitan State College of Denver. Skellenger's fierce dedication to the electric bass led him to attend Steve Bailey and Victor Wooten's Bass At the Beach Workshop in 2004, as well as five of Victor Wooten's Bass Nature Camps from 2004-2009. There he had first hand experience studying with Victor Wooten, Steve Bailey, Anthony Wellington, and Chuck Rainey. They are all full time instructors at the camps and some of the most influential educators and musicians to ever play the electric bass. At the 2005 BNC, Skellenger was awarded one of two scholarships to attend The Bass Collective in NYC for a week long intensive course. The versatility of Matt's playing can be heard on music ranging from solo bass, jazz quintet and modern rock power trio to folk, americana, funk, hip hop and pop groups.
