Matthew Heller grew up on a small farm in Portland, Oregon. Singer-songwriter Matthew Heller’s rock n’ roll folk has the stories, the brave vulnerability, and the painful truths of traditional folk, but it’s just way, way louder. Heller’s unique blend of alt-rock catharsis and protest music messaging is potent and poignant.
“This is not some angst-ridden whining that typifies what music today offers up for expression. This is a portrait of the brutality that simultaneously tortures and enriches relationships. It’s a soundtrack to your pain, and it aggressively forces you to confront yourself. ”
“Roaring out of Portland, Oregon, this hard hitting and gritty singer-songwriter covers some diverse territory lyrically grounding his message in a solid alt rock/folk style, but that message isn’t lost in his expertly crafted grungy yet melodic tunes. They scream to be heard. ”
