About Matt Vrba

Content In the Fall of 2005, Vrba relocated to Portland from California and established himself as a fixture on the local scene virtually overnight. Since forming his current band, a Portland-based trio, Matt's sound has morphed into a high-octane, alt-country style with solid, hooky songwriting akin to artists like Glen Phillips and Ryan Adams. His lyrical style, although much grittier, hints at influences from Jason Mraz and Jack Johnson. But let there be no mistake, Vrba?s sound is all his own. Vrba has put out two albums ? Everywhere in Between, his well-regarded debut, plus a live album ? and is currently working on a third with legendary A&R man Don Grierson, responsible for discovering bands from Cheap Trick and Heart to The Indigo Girls. Drummer Mark Evilsizer (Al Perez Band) and bassist Chris Chard (Rye Hollow) lend their support as Vrba?s backing band. The last two years have been kind to Vrba and the future looks even brighter. His charismatic stage presence and non-stop work ethic has been wowing audiences ? and industry folk ? across America at venues ranging from L.A.'s famed Viper Room and The Rockwood Music Hall in NYC to huge festivals like the Bite Of Seattle and San Francisco's North Beach Festival. In the last 24 months Matt has played over 300 shows in 34 states and 3 countries. www.mattvrba.com
