Bio

Matt Zaddy is the kind of songwriter you feel you have known your whole life.

 

His Blend of Folk Rock / & Rhythm & Blues tells his own story of life, love, hardship, and redemption.  Matt has been performing across Canada in support of his latest release, the Perfect Moments EP to rave reviews.  In summer 2017, he re-released the title track off this effort and is hit the road across Eastern Canada.

 

“It was a great experience to revisit the title track Perfect Moments off my last release.  We went back in the studio and redid all the guitar and vocals, and it was a welcomed feeling to breath fresh life into a  song which tells my own inspiration of writing the record in the first place.  I can’t wait to share the new vision of this song with all of you.”
