Biography

Sudbury, Ontario, Canada (1984 – present)

Matt Pacey is an alternative music enthusiast and self-described musician currently residing in , , .
Matt Pacey, aka Forkimified, aka Overcaffeinated Lad was born in Sudbury, Ontario, Canada on May 13th, 1984. Matt spent the first three years of his life living in Espanola, Ontario, and during these early years was influenced by the music his dad would listen to on vinyl, cassette, and the radio, such as The Beatles and Led Zeppelin. Matt’s parents moved to Lively, Ontario when he was four years old, where he attended George Vanier Public School, and later Lively District Secondary School. It was in Lively that Matt began playing guitar, smashing his first ukulele to pieces as a toddler, before he’d even heard of the destructive antics of Kurt Cobain, Jimi Hendrix, or Keith Moon. His dad owned many guitars, but it wasn’t until he met Aaron Goedhard (who, along with his cousin Lacey, first turned him on to Nirvana and ’90s ) that he began learning the instrument. Aaron dubbed his copy of Nevermind onto one side of a 90-minute tape, and Matt would listen to this over and over again on his boom box and Walkman.The guitar first riff he learned from Aaron was Nirvana’s ‘Come as You Are,’ and he later picked up Marilyn Manson’s version of ‘Sweet Dreams.’
Listening to Aaron’s CDs after school and at lunch hour, the songs of bands like Nirvana, Smashing Pumpkins, Green Day, and Silverchair were burned into his brain.
