Biography

We are all searching for something.

For Matt Shwachman, it is a search for melody, for motion, and for fulfillment of the mind. This search has forged by an acoustic guitar driven-blend of pop/rock which Skope Magazine states, “would impress fans of artists such as John Mayer, Tom Petty and Jason Mraz.” Although his artistic vision and style took years to take shape, Matt would taste success with his very first finished song. Although written years earlier, “Side of the Road” recently touched listeners across the country when it earned a spot on the hit TV series, One Tree Hill.

Matt’s new album, entitled Uncharted Territory, “is a journey about the process, not the end result,” Matt says. “We are all ever-evolving, changing and growing people. It is this growth process that brings fulfillment, and in order to attain any sense of it, it must be earned.” Matt has seen his music do well at college radio, with spins on over 150 stations. So much so, CMJ recently stated, “Acoustic-wielding, Boston-Based singer songwriter Matt Shwachman will be giving established heart-melters like One Republic and Five For Fighting a run for their money.”

Matt has been earning his keep by hitting the pavement hard with his new band, cleverly titled the Matt Shwachman Band (MSB). MSB features Hugh Allen on bass, Mike Fiore on lead guitar and Dana Bonardi on percussion. MSB is quickly gaining a reputation as one of New England’s hardest working bands, with an active calendar to prove it. They have played arenas, headlined festivals, played colleges, universities, and schools, in addition to the top club venues in the North East.
