Bio

Matt Eugene has been harmonizing since he was able to form words, singing alongside his father to country songs he quickly learned the ability to find just the right note. Growing up in Moncton, N.B. Canada, Matt was greatly influenced by his grandfather; local jazz musician Jamie "Eugene" Colpitts of "Jazz Generation". Now in his 80s, Jamie has been well established on the canadian jazz scene playing with many greats such as Herb Ellis, Barney Kessel, and Peter Appleyard. Matt learns a great deal from his grandfather when it comes to music.

In high school years, local punk pop band "Bigger Than Wes" was a hit with Matt as frontman/lead singer for the band's unforgettable songs such as "drown" later released on a 7-song cassette debut release. Onward into the 2000s, other bands were formed and performed such as
'Of A Vertigo' and others.

Matt's sound is influenced heavily by Blind Melon, Sloan, JP, and let's not forget the radio songs of the 1990s. This shows front and center in his music. Well rounded, Matt plays guitar, bass,drums, and writes his own music. Today he's working on songs for a release in 2012 and expanding online presence.
