On the heels of recent Mile High success stories such as the Fray and Flobots, the Denver Post says this about Matthew Moon: “Tight songwriting and lush delivery prompt Colorado rock fans to tout this performer as the state's next breakout.”

Moon, a Denver-to-L.A. transplant, has a rich history of recording and performance experience, a solid touring and sales base, and boasts an “elastic” voice that’s compared to the likes of Paul McCartney, Freddie Mercury and Ben Folds.

After seeing Moon’s set at California’s Del Mar Music Festival, Larry Richter (Eric Clapton’s management team) called it, “One of the best performances I’ve seen,” and promptly signed Matthew to a management deal. Shortly thereafter, Moon recorded his soon-to-be hit, “Don’t Change 4 Me.” The song, a catchy collaboration with Grammy-nominated artists Jesse Valenzuela (Gin Blossoms) and Danny Wilde (Rembrandts), was featured in the Budweiser 2008 Summer Olympics Promo on NBC and the end cap (closing credits) track for this past summer’s hit movie, “Soccer Mom.”

While Moon’s catalogue is described as cool folk meets smart pop, he possesses a wide vocal range that lets him go from gentle to growl, as evident when he fronted Velvet Revolver recently at the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, UT. Moon was asked to front the band at the last minute when Scott Weiland missed his flight. With only an hour until show time, Moon downloaded lyrics onto his Blackberry and crammed en route to the gig.

As Matt took the stage and led legends Slash, Duff, and Matt Sorum, the crowd – which was full of Sundance celebs and pop culture icons – went wild with approval. The experience led to an onslaught of attention and rumors from online blogs and the print media, including LA Weekly,,, Music Connection and The question: Is Moon replacing Weiland? While the answer was unquestionably no, the stir caused Moon’s popularity to further grow. Additionally, Moon led an ensemble cast including John Popper (Blues Traveler), Wally Ingram (Sheryl Crow Band), Tom Freund and others for two highly anticipated performances At Sundance 09'.
