The Matt Swanton Band
A Musical Journey
At 9 years old, he was inspired to pick up the guitar after going to shows at The Bull Run in his home town of Shirley, MA. He spent his teen years practicing in his bedroom, playing in high school groups, and sitting in at blues jams. He continued his musical endeavors into college, attending UMass Lowell, where he earned a degree in Sound Engineering and performed in many ensembles with his peers. After years of cutting his teeth and getting to share the stage with the likes of Mike Zito, Albert Castiglia, Papa Chubby, and Ronnie Earl, he is taking to the stage with his no frills, no BS blues band.
