"The Matt Freedman Band"
Matt Freedman is a singer and songwriter with a 15 year history of writing and selling out shows with various bands. Matt Freedman was born in Bucks County, Pennsylvania and was a teenager when he began writing songs. His blend of storytelling, nostalgia and anthemy hooks makes Matt a unique artist as well as songwriter in the pop/country and Americana genres. He taught himself to play guitar, drums and bass as a young teenager, and started his first band at 12 years old with middle school friends. As a student at Council Rock High School, Matt was the captain of his Football and Basketball teams, leading to a Football Scholarship as a quarterback. As a young football player, Matt set school records in passing and rushing yards, and earned himself First team honors. As Matt grew as a musician, his bands went to sell out the Trocadero Theater in Philadelphia, and went on to play Lincoln Financial Field, home of the Philadelphia Eagles.
Freedman was being scouted as a baseball player during his time playing American Legion baseball, as a pitcher and outfielder but decided to follow his passion as a quarterback on the football field. After blowing out his knee during college on a passing play, Matt's career abruptly ended as a football player and Matt turned immediately to music. He began writing deeply personal songs to get through the change, and gravitated towards pop/punk, country and soul music. He has gone onto opening for acts like Miranda Lambert, Brett Young, Jon Langston, Maddie & Tae, and Lily Rose, and recording in Nashville, TN. His debut single "Good Love" Has surpassed 150,000 streams on Spotify in its first 2 months, and continues to get airplay around the country.
The Matt Freedman Band continues to rise the ranks of country, pop and americana genres to bring raw, lyric driven music to the masses and is poised to have a breakout year in 2022.
