Matt Hoffman is an American folk rock musician who founded Strange Americans. Following the success of their 2012 release, A Royal Battle, Matt focused on a solo live and recording project, resulting in the forthcoming EP, Lateral Moves. A true musician, artist and visionary for the endeavor, Hoffman performed and recorded nearly all instrumental and vocal tracks on the record.
The songs dive deeply into an honest exploration of human experience and emotion, advocating a raw and simple-yet-meaningful perspective. While imaginatively descriptive in their landscape, the lyrics are packaged in the authenticity that fuels Hoffman’s real and passionate delivery, clearly connecting performer and audience.
On stage, Hoffman performs as a solo act, spouting out renditions of tunes that burst with emotive musicianship. The sheer dynamism and direction of the interplay between guitar and voice establish a remarkably rich and powerful texture; add a folky harmonica to the mix for an additional color in the palette and the result is a truly captivating, memorable live performance.
