Katie Toupin & Matt Myers EP



Katie Toupin

Katie Toupin grew up around two things: music and horses. Her father played guitar and loved learning new music. When Katie would sing to the Beatles or Bonnie Raitt on the radio, he’d tell Katie, “Don’t be shy. Sing loud.”

But Katie’s first love was riding horses, and she was good - becoming an instructor in her teens.

When a snowboarding accident ended Katie’s riding instructor career, she made a mission trip to the Dominican Republic, where, on a beach one night, as she played and sang to herself, a group of tourists gathered around and wanted to hear more. “It felt like God was calling me to sing.”

After the trip, Katie sang and played countless hours with her father, honing her skills, preparing for what was to replace her lost career as a horsewoman.

Matt Myers

Matt Myers started playing guitar when he was thirteen “to appeal to women.” At first fascinated by neo classical rock, he later became interested in blues, listening to old recordings of Albert King and Albert Collins.

That influence blossomed into a blues band with his cousins during high school. When the band broke up, Matt enrolled in a university music program, but, preferring to apply music theory to guitar work rather than homework, he eventually left to pursue music full time.

Now, both the formal training and blues influences are evident in Matt’s thoughtful approach to acoustic guitar.

Katie & Matt

As soon as Katie heard Matt, she introduced him to her father and the three were soon playing local venues. When Katie’s father felt Matt and Katie could go it alone, they did, playing their first gig with a whopping three-song repertoire.

Katie and Matt now write their own songs, combining their varied talents in a unique style influenced by Stevie Ray Vaughan, Dave Rawlings, Bob Dylan, Eric Clapton, the Felice Brothers, Gillian Welch, and Neil Young.

With Katie’s powerful vocals, Matt’s appealing guitar work, and their earthy, lyrical songs, Katie Toupin and Matt Myers are poised on the cusp of a compelling career.
