Growing up, once-rapper Nepean white kid Matty McKechnie was a massive teen listener of J Mascis (Dinosaur Jr.), Stephen Malkmus (Pavement), Bruce Springsteen and Led Zeppelin. Having played in suburban garage bands since his mid-teens, he began to adapt and progress with the shifting musical terrain around him while still staying true to his idyllic influences. Matty’s songs are truly passionate, personal and rare – and with a wild, rotating and circus-like band of ever-talented individuals backing him, his music generates interest and intensity. Having opened for and shared stage space with such artists as Dave Gunning, Tanya Davis, JD Edwards, The Wooden Sky, Catherine McLellan, The Good Lovelies, Matt is an active player in a few different collectives, and a consistent guitarist and vocalist for Lanark, Ontario songstress & up and comer Ali McCormick.
