Born to a jazz guitarist and music teacher father and a mother with a classical pedigree, Matt Bednarsky grew up in Shelton, CT engulfed in music. He began violin at the age of 4 (soon after left behind), guitar at age 8, and started singing probably not long after he could make farm animal noises. He first put pen to paper in songwriting at the age of 12.
Matt attended New York University and studied Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, psychology, and music. After studying abroad in Italy, graduating from NYU, and living at an orphanage in Trujillo, Peru for eight months, he eventually found himself back in NYC and immersed in Greenwich Village’s singer/songwriter community. However, it wasn’t long until he made the move to Nashville in 2013 to dive into Music City’s vibrant scene.
Since then, Matt’s been full steam ahead.
He’s released three full-length studio albums, “A Bigger Picture” (in part executive produced by Ed Cash) in 2014, “Two” (co-produced with Gus Berry) in 2015, and “Luminescence” (co-produced with Neilson Hubbard) in 2017.
