Matt Axton

Hello friends, my name is Matthew Axton. Thank you for lending me some of your time. I like to think of my music as a “Humble slice of Americana”, a mix of folk, funk, country, blues and rock with a little bit of everything else I can find thrown in.

About the Event

Some  would say music is in the blood. I was lucky enough to be born into a  musical family and I am proud to keep the Axton Family Legacy alive.  With my grandmother Mae "Queen Mother of Nashville" Axton - PR maven /  Songwriter - "Heartbreak Hotel". My father Hoyt Axton-  Singer/Songwriter/Actor - "Joy to the world", "Della and the Dealer"  and  "Gremlins". And My mom Donna Axton - Composer/Professor of  Music/Piano Master as my guides, my musical journey took flight.

As a youth, I was hopping on and off tour busses, running wild  backstage and hanging with artistic characters of all kinds. Music was  never a "Like it" or "don't like it" type of thing , it just was "it".  This set me up with a unique connection to the musical note and the  accompanying words that go into making a song. I learned to give an ear  to every style. To find joy and excitement in each story and to seek out  the challenge of bringing it to life with originality as the  foundation.

The line between Country Bumpkin and Classical Master

Although music was always part of my life, I didn’t find my own voice  and style until after high school when an injury confined me to a bed  and my best friend became the guitar. My dad always said he felt like he  was a satellite dish, the Music was floating in the cosmos and he was  the lucky one who could pick up the waves. I feel the same. So I grabbed  that guitar and the music flowed. Beginning with the simple  Singer/Songwriter and picking up whatever sound the songs asks for along  the way, but never straying too far from my roots and the unique  storytelling that a group of note with the right set of words behind it  can bring. I truly love the adventure of trying to make someone dance a  little longer, think a little deeper and bring just a little more JOY TO  THE WORLD!

I like to ride the line between the Country Bumpkin  and the Classical Master, pulling inspiration from every life journey,  whether it's the simple joy of fresh air on a beautiful mountain day or  the grind of a packed overnight ride to the next gig. Having a song  connect and bring a smile or a tear to the face of a new friend is about  as close to magic as I have found in this life.

Having an open mind, surrounding yourself with good  people and going wherever the song takes you seems to be the best way to  travel. And I hope you can join me somewhere along this crazy journey.

May the Music forever ring true to you and yours. And as Always, JOY TO YOU !
