The Matt Skinner Band is a 4-piece alt-country/ roots-rock band headquartered in the Northern Front Range of the Rocky Mountains in the city of Fort Collins, Colorado. Lead by veteran singer-songwriter Matt Skinner, the group brings its ferocious, high energy brand of original, rock-infused country music to the stage night after night after night.
“That smooth, powerful tenor drawl that evokes the best of both Kings: country legend George Strait and rockabilly legend Elvis.” -TEXAS MUSIC MAGAZINE
Skinner’s lyrics capture the raw human spirit and come to life as the band deftly weaves a colorful tapestry of songs and stories of love and danger with a passion born of living and tempered with an infectious groove. The detail and imagery of each song is magnified by the intense electricity of the band as Skinner’s powerful, road-worn tenor voice commands the stage with a presence that is spellbinding in its organic honesty and mercurial resonance. Each performance is a thrilling, emotional carnival ride filled with love, laughter, pain and heartbreak.
