Matt & Kim are a two-piece: Matt plays keys and Kim plays drums.

The two met at Pratt Institute. Despite Kim having never played drums before and Matt having never played keyboard, they started the band in 2004.

Sidewalks is Matt and Kim's 3rd full length and was released on November 2, 2010 on FADER Label. The songs were written by Matt & Kim and recorded in both Atlanta and NY with producers Ben Allen and Oliver Straus, respectively. The first single from the new album, "Cameras", was released August 31, 2010 and jumped to the number 14 spot on the iTunes Alternative Chart within the first hour its release. The "Cameras" music video was released on January 20, 2011.

The new album is the follow up to Grand, released in early 2009 via FADER Label. Grand achieved iTunes Top 10 single and album placements, as well as spots on both the Billboard Single and Album Charts. To date, Matt and Kim have been on the Billboard New Artist chart for 78 weeks and the single "Daylight" is certified gold, having sold over 500K.

Matt and Kim graduated with art school degrees from Pratt Institute and as such, stay closely involved in all the visual elements of the band. Kim designs the album covers and band merch. Matt develops the concepts for their music videos, including the one for "Lessons Learned," which won an MTV VMA for Breakthrough Video and an mtvU Woodie award for Best Video.

The band's first recording was a self-released EP titled To/From that came out in 2005.

JC Brooks & The Uptown Sound

What does post-punk soul look like? Six and a half feet of raw emotion and sweat, with one leather boot planted in gutsy R&B, the other in taut minimalist grind. Snarling at the crowd beneath an afro pompadour, while indulging in a sly wink, singing to you directly, and here to make you dance. What does post-punk soul look like? It looks like JC Brooks & the Uptown Sound.
