Matt's vocals, musical styling, and song writing ability echo that of many past legends that inspired him throughout his life such as Johnny Cash & Bruce Springsteen. However, the musical mix that Matt has created is a style of it's own with undertones of Rock, Country, Blues and what his Grandma and Grandpa raised him on, good ole American Blue Grass. The ambition and drive that shines through as he strums his guitar or belts out another note with his harmonica easily mesmerizes the crowd drawing them into moments of their past or enticing them to work a little harder, dream a little bigger, and love a little deeper. They have been captured by a caliber of music rarely heard in today's commercialized industry that is honest and pure created from the soul of one man on a level that relates to many men and women. Most weekend nights there is a band in every bar and on every corner, but if you happen to hear that Matt Maloof is near, be prepared for something a little out of the ordinary, in fact your feet will be tapping and you will be singing along, by the end of the evening you will realize that you were part of the extraordinary. When you hear his version of “Folsom Prison Blues”, you may feel as though a ghost passed through the room, but the soulful originals that will follow will convince you there is someone new on the horizon.
