Matt Nasi Band
Born of equal parts cinephiles and audiophiles, the Matt Nasi Band is a Pop Rock creation with parents stemming from Stevie Wonder to GuyRichie, and Bonnie Raitt to Brigitte Nielsen. Whether it's an acoustic Apéritif or an effect cornucopia, The Matt Nasi Band will soothe your musical pangs.
This unlikely caldron began brewing after Matt Nasi made his rounds as a solo Singer/Songwriter in college and was faced with the realization of getting a real job after graduation. Little did he know that within the cubicles and staff meetings of his real jobs he would meet his band. Between an account manager, a production artist, a designer, an art director, an illustrator, and a public relations ninja, the band could assemble its own ad agency… but it won't. Instead they are focused on the infiltration through amplification and reverberation into your heart vibrations (palpitations). Their freshman full length effort "Anticiption" runs the gamut of styles from soul to synth anthems inspired by the limitless influences of the band's members.
Pop rock artist Landon Smith is capturing listeners with his energetic music loaded with melodic hooks and real emotive value. He hits you in the heart with musical power and meets you in the mind with his songwriting smarts. Landon's rock songs are catchy, dare you to sing along, and make you want to hit repeat.
The creative process for Landon is a matter of applying his formidable talent to bringing the moments of his personal life to the listeners in the audience. Unafraid to use his own existence as rich material on which to base his songwriting, he is able to make music in which people can see themselves. “My music reflects what’s going on in my life,” says Smith. Fuse that to strong pop grooves and the hits are here. The final factor is Smith’s serious emotional savvy. He knows how to touch on the power of the human heart with genuine passion rather than trite emotional manipulation. “My writing is inspired by situations that have taken place in my life as well as the lives of people close to me.”
All the motivation Landon needs to write his songs is that same basic need felt by all of us. In different people it manifests in different ways. With Landon, the focus is music. Music provides him with his sense of direction and, through him, offers the listener outstanding pop rock sounds. “Music makes me feel like I have some kind of purpose since it’s the only thing I’ve ever really understood.”
