MATT NAKOA With a colorful three-octave vocal range and music that weaves gracefully between classical and blues, Matt Nakoa's unique rock sound has been compared to that of Jeff Buckley and Paul McCartney.
Raised on a small farm in Upstate New York, Matt's talents took him throughout the Catskill and Adirondack mountain regions and ultimately landed him a scholarship to Berklee College of Music in Boston. At Berklee, Matt thrived in many musical styles, and worked with acclaimed artists, including Grammy-winning country singer Kathy Mattea and audio engineering legends George Massenburg (Billy Joel, James Taylor) and Elliot Scheiner (Sting, Eagles, Aerosmith).
Matt has appeared at major universities, sporting events, festivals, and clubs throughout the United States. He can currently be seen weekly at Brandy's Piano Bar in New York City and on the road in a city near you! Check out Matt’s full-length debut album “Light In The Dark”, available now on itunes and at Matt's official store.
