Matt Moran grew up in SW Oklahoma, an area steeped in traditional country music. Growing up, he was exposed to the likes of greats such as George Jones and Randy Travis as well as rock’n’roll icons such as Bruce Springsteen by his family on a regular basis.
From this background his interest in songwriting developed at the young age of 16. The next 14 years he spent honing his craft, combining the styles of the influences he grew up on with the stories of everyday life in rural America. In February of 2018, he finally decided to take his songs on the road.
Matt has spent the duration of 2018 playing every honky think, bar, restaurant and coffee shop that would have him totaling over 60 shows this year in Oklahoma and West Texas.
