Matt Michienzie was born in Boston, MA. Growing up, he was inspired by classic country and blues artists like Johnny Cash, Stevie Ray Vaughan and The Band . Likewise, his style was influenced by more modern blues and jam bands like Dave Matthews Band and Blues Traveler. Throughout his childhood spent in Foxboro, MA, Matt played in various bands and was even in the local orchestra as an upright bass player. An avid fan of country music and bluegrass, Matt emulates an older sound in a modern setting. In 2013, Matt made it through the first three rounds of American Idol as a contestant in Boston. While living in Boston, he performed at the famous Middle East venue. While at Boston College, Matt performed in the Battle of the Bands and was the Musical Director of the BC Acoustics A Capella group.

Now, in Los Angeles, Matt has performed at Pig n Whistle and The Mint. In L.A., Matt is spending his time writing and performing with his band. He is also getting an MFA in Film Production from the University of Southern California's School of Cinematic Arts.
