Laradise Music Showcase #9 featuring Matt Skinner Band and  Tie Hack brought in part by Coal Creek Tap

Matt Skinner Band

Matt Skinner is an American musician, singer, songwriter, artist, poet and traveler blending original lyrics with elements of country, blues, western swing and roots-rock and roll. Graced with a keen eye for detail and imagery and coupled with a powerful, road-worn tenor voice, Skinner commands the stage with a tender ferocity and presence that is spellbinding in its organic honesty and mercurial resonance.

"That smooth, powerful tenor drawl that evokes the best of both Kings: country legend George Strait and rockabilly legend Elvis."

-Allie Eissler, TEXAS MUSIC MAGAZINE

Matt captures the raw spirit of music in his expert guitar work and haunting lyrics, deftly weaving a colorful tapestry of songs and stories of love and danger sharing his passion born of living with stoic elegance and infectious passion. Each performance is a thrilling, emotional carnival ride filled love, laughter, pain and heartbreak.

Matt has released three solo albums, Four Winds (2001), The Nighthawk Affair (2007) and Live at StoneCringe: Vol I (2009) on Tapadero Productions label and one independent rock EP, Four Day March (2010) with the supergroup, Eleven Bones. Songs co-written with Corb Lund are featured on Corb's album, Cabin Fever (2012) which was the #1 album in Canada and nominated for a Juno Award. Skinner's 4th studio album, Native Stranger (2013) is scheduled to be released in early fall.

A native of the Big Bend area of Texas, Matt now makes his home in Fort Collins, Colorado, and tours worldwide as a solo performer and sideman as well as fronting the Matt Skinner Band and as a member of the Waylon Willies.
