Born and breathed in the northern air of Minneapolis, Minnesota; the music of Matt Moberg has been a part of his wiring since birth. With a father who filled the home with songs and a mother who bought him his first guitar, being a musician was an inevitable destination for Matt. It wasn't until late high school, however, that Moberg started to unfold all that his could be for his future.
After spending a few years writing music that never left his notebook, there came a crossroads where the choice to chase or stand still was pressing. "I started to get depressed about how full my notebooks were with songs that I really did believe in, but not enough to invest in," Moberg laughs over a warm coffee. "Investing in a song requires vulnerability and money, two things that I was pretty empty on at the time." It took a lining up of fate and faith to be willing to move the songs from the locked notebooks and out into the world. Matt Berry, owner of Hewitt Records and Hewitt Studios, was the first to believe in what this music could become. "I spent about 6 months in the studio with Berry making Bravery Songs, knowing fully that it would cost me about $7,000 to do so," Moberg says. "At the end of it though, Matt more or less told me that he was going to foot the bill. I remember sitting at a Starbucks in Roseville when he said that he wanted to be in my corner and walk with me in this. That was one of the more profound moments of my life."
From that moment on, the music of Matt Moberg has traveled and found homes in hearts all across the world. His songs have been featured on shows like "Jersey Shore", "Teen Mom", "Friendzone", and "Married to Jonas." He has shared the stage with prominent artists like Dave Barnes, Mason Jennings, Dessa, Angel Taylor, Tony Lucca, and others as well. His first EP "Bravery Songs" brought with it a welcomed sound of folk and story, mixed with the warmth of light rock. Moberg's latest release "RACERS", hit the shelves in January and has already been celebrated across radio stations all over the world. "RACERS feels more personal than perhaps Bravery Songs does now," Moberg says. "Perhaps that has to happen given that these words are more fresh. But I think where I'm at in life with my wife Lauren and baby Wyatt, these words just feel more consistent. I love what we put together with Bravery Songs, but I am so excited about where these new songs are taking us."
