Matt Mitchell began writing and performing his music when he was a small child. He was trained classically on piano starting at the age of four and added guitar as a teenager. Matt has taken his foundational skills in music and steadily developed his own sound; a flavor of folk influenced, narrative rich, Americana-roots music. His songs are honest, relatable and moving. You’ll find him playing piano, hammond organ or strumming his very unique 1930’s-era guitar that once belonged to his Great Grandfather. In 2005, after a year living abroad volunteering and traveling Europe, he joined the San Francisco based band Ten Mile Tide and spent the better part of the next six years touring the country as a keyboardist, harmonica player and singer. Matt has played music in every state but Florida. In 2011 he formed his own band; a six piece Americana/rock n’ roll group called ‘Folkinception’. The band was bestowed the honor of “Best Original Band” in 2018 and 2019 in the Pacific NW Inlander’s ‘Best Of’ reader poll. In 2019 they changed their name to ‘Trego’. The band has recorded two, full length albums and is set to release a third in the fall of 2021. In January of 2020 Matt moved into an imported Japanese bus and spent the following 18 months on the road with his wife and two dogs. His newest collection of songs were written amidst his experiences traveling during the tumult and uncertainty of the past few years.
“Last year was a devastating time for fans of Americana, country, and pretty much anyone who loved a well-written song with the passing of Walker, Prine and Billy Joe Shaver all in the span of six months. It’s heartening though to know there is another generation of talented singers and songwriters eschewing current trends and fads and focusing simply on writing timeless, relatable music agnostic of specific genres. Meyer is certainly one of those acolytes to the greats, alongside peers like Todd Snider and Hayes Carll carrying that tradition into the future.” –Glide Magazine
