Matt Nakoa

June 3 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm EDT

Matt Nakoa is an award-winning songwriter, singer, and multi-instrumentalist. A modern troubadour, he makes his home on the highways and concert stages of America and appears regularly with folk music icon Tom Rush. Growing up on a small goat farm in rural NY State, Matt discovered music as a means of teenage escape and trained to be a concert pianist, before accepting a scholarship to Berklee College of Music as a vocalist. He developed his dramatic songwriting style with his college art-rock band, The Fens, and when the band dissolved, he landed in NYC. It was in Manhattanʼs famous Brandy’s Piano Bar, with lines waiting outside the door each Saturday night, that Matt developed an uncanny ability to command the attention of any audience. Whether solo for an intimate evening or with The Matt Nakoa Band, Matt is contemporary pop at its’ very best. As a recent reviewer put it, “Matt Nakoa is a musical adept, one of those well kept secrets you just can’t help but celebrate: intimate and genuine, soulful and bittersweet, a rich poetic songbook sung in praise to a complicated, emotionally present world.”
