Matt Bliton Band is a Mid-Michigan based Folk-Rock & Blues jam band fronted by internationally acclaimed singer/songwriter Matt Bliton. The band draws influence from acts such as James Taylor, Bob Dylan, Neil Young, and The Eagles. The band released their first album, “Solid Ground, Endless Sky” in 2013, and followed that up with the release of their second album “New Morning” in 2015. This third album, “Out of the Woods”, is mix of blues rock, rock and roll, jam band, basso nova, Latin and folk rock. It is filled with incredible instrumentation, thoughtful songwriting, and tight harmonies. The album, which was recorded with Ryan Wert at Elm Street Recording, will also features Rick Seguin on harmonies, Mark Thompson on trumpet, Gary Clavette on sax, Mark Kieme on flute and sax, Joshua Dunigan and Ty Forquer on percussion. “We are always excited to get a chance to play our music for our families, friends, and fans,” says Bliton. We are really looking forward to the release of our third album, and hope everyone has as much fun listening to it, as we did making it.”
