Matt Deblass

When he was 21 years old, Matt DeBlass dropped out of college because of money issues. While he was figuring out what to do next, he decided to take off to Ireland and visit a friend. He spent several months living as a street musician and developed a real love for traditional songs.
Over the next two decades he learned to play several different string instruments, including the Celtic harp, guitar and mandolin, and spent his weekends playing in bars and coffee shops from his hometown in Central New Jersey all through the Northeast. While on a tour playing mandolin with Eli August and the Abandoned Buildings, he found himself in Madison, Wisconsin and decided to stay.
Now based in the Midwest, this self-described "folk-singing bike hippie" continues to record and perform both modern and traditional acoustic music, and will often pedal himself to gigs on a bicycle with his instruments in a special trailer.
