Matt Sucich (pron: Sue-Sitch) is from Astoria, Queens. He writes songs. He sings them with his voice. He plays them with a guitar. Sometimes he sleeps. But most times he's awake. You can find Matt somewhere in New York City, and other places...
In June 2012, Matt made his debut at Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival in Manchester, TN, receiving high praise and pleasant comparisons from Andy Langer (Esquire Magazine) on his "Best Other Bands Of Bonnaroo" list - "Because this Queens singer-songwriter is trying to break your heart. What appear at first glance to be simple love songs quickly reveal a Wilco- and Iron & Wine-like depth (and desperation)." The list puts Sucich in esteemed company, including Michael Kiwanuka, Trixie Whitley, and Little Dragon. In addition, Matt performed at both SXSW & CMJ, which featured a set at JetBlue's "Live at T5" concert series. In November '12, Sucich released his 2nd full-length album, Layers, to a capacity crowd at NYC's Rockwood Music Hall.
If you're thinking this is some "flash-in-the-pan" story, it's more like a simmer, and Matt plans on keeping it that way. As a songwriter, Matt Sucich took his time developing a style and sound that, like any artist, may borrow from a wealth of influence but is distinctively his own. Influences range from Bob Dylan, Paul Simon, & Bruce Springsteen to M. Ward and My Morning Jacket. Although he only began cementing his place in the NYC music scene in 2010, it was the years prior that Matt spent cutting his teeth, performing with friends & various band incarnations at venues like The Living Room, The Bowery Electric, and Southpaw. In 2009 Sucich was fortunate enough to support the legendary Levon Helm at his Midnight Ramble in Woodstock, NY, and in 2010 he released his debut album, Jubilation & Jealousy, at Joe's Pub.
2013 has seen Matt heavily promoting & touring behind Layers, including an appearance at the Firefly Music Festival & a private performance for NPR Music & Squarespace with The Lone Bellow during the Newport Folk Festival. For info, tour dates, tracks, and video go tohttp://esmatteo.com/
