Matt Nakoa

Friday, November 5 @ 8:00 PM
$20 – $25

MATT NAKOA grew up on a small goat farm in Smyrna, NY and began
composing music as a teenager. Following a formative stint as a classical pianist,
Matt won scholarship to attend Berklee College of Music in Boston. There he
studied alongside soon-to-be Grammy winners St. Vincent and Esperanza
Spaulding among others. After college, Matt toured with his band, The Fens, and
eventually landed in New York City’s vibrant piano bar scene. Matt quickly
became a star performer at Manhattan’s Brandy’s Piano Bar, with lines of people
waiting outside the door each Saturday night.

Matt’s first solo album, Light In The Dark (2012), is an eclectic pop opus. In
contrast, A Dozen Other Loves (2014), explores a simple acoustic palette. This
intimate collection has earned many songwriting awards, including a win at
Kerrville Folk Festival’s prestigious New Folk Competition. Additionally, Matt’s
piano music has received favorable reviews in publications including The New
York Times, and his film scoring has been featured by Disney. Matt now tours
internationally, recently performing at The White House, throughout India, and
regularly with folk music icon Tom Rush. Matt is endorsed by Stonebridge Guitars.
