Matt Blanton, born and raised in Ashland, Virginia, is a singer/songwriter and classical musician. Highly influenced by his study of the classical guitar, Matt has cultivated a unique approach to playing and writing on the steel string acoustic guitar, which in turn has led to developing a sound of his own. With his distinguished guitar style, combined with his introspective lyrics and smooth vocals, Matt creates songs that differ drastically in sound and feel. Ranging from heavy hitting blues-rock to slow-pulsing melodic ballads, each song retains its own identity while lending itself to Matt’s original overall sound. Matt has studied music at the Shenandoah University Music Conservatory and currently continues his studies at VCU.
