When a cool ocean breeze blows through an epic rock anthem,the result is a Matt Clark song. The singer and guitarist was born just outside Santa Barbara, California. His one-of-a-kind style reveals the influence of artists such as Sublime, Jack Johnson, The Clash, and the Police. His magnetic tenor voice captivates audiences that are enchanted by his songs. His latest band project, Blown Over gives listeners the fix they need when they wish the could see Sublime live again.
While working on his latest recording project with David McGuiness (long-time engineer for Eric Bazilian and Rob Hyman, authors of Time After Time and What if God Were One of Us?), Matt sounded better than ever, revealing a signature sound. His pop-culture style is influenced by veteran producer Lance Bendiksen, who has produced projects and live shows for Sony, Arista, and RCA.
This uniquely talented artist has set his sights on a larger fan base. Currently playing throughout the western U.S. Playing gigs week after week, and selling thousands of CDs to everyone from loyal fans to strangers on the street, he persisted in honing his craft and sharing his musical talent with others.
It's clear that Matt is no ordinary recording artist. With his expressive, poignant lyrics, he reveals a heart that is bigger than most. He is channeling his passion to help others by partnering with international nonprofit organizations like Kiva.org, which gives small businesses a head start in the developing world, as well as, partnering with local govt. to provide low income housing in urban areas in the US.
