About Matt Plessner
Matt Plessner is a singer-songwriter based out of St. Louis, MO. His influences are vast-running from the 60s hippie artists to recent alternative and punk bands. Originally from the small town of Eureka, IL, Matt began studying music at age 4 on violin. He also played other instruments such as cello and trumpet before he finally began to play guitar at age 10. Matt‘s father taught him to play the melody of “CC Rider, and from there, Matt spent most of his waking hours figuring out songs by popular artists by ear when he wasn’t studying for school like he should have been. At age 15, Matt began writing songs. In high school, instead of a social life, he spent most of his time writing songs, trying to form various bands, and exploring other instruments such as Bass, Drums, Harmonica, and eventually, mandolin and piano. Matt studied for two years at Illinois Central College (where he fronted the local three-piece band “The Bitter End”) before transfering to Principia College, where he graduated with a Mass Communications degree. While in College, Matt released the rough EP “SevenAlive” days before attending an abroad study in Peru. While the record was sold in the local bookstore at the college, Matt also marketed SevenAlive on the streets of Peruvian cities such as Arequipa and Cusco. A track from SevenAlive, “Millions,” earned a small reputation on the campus and between close friends for being Matt’s signature song. After returning to the states, Matt began working on his first full-legnth and self-recorded/produced album, “We Meet Again.” One of his songs, “Amantani Lullabye,” which was written on the Peruvian soil of Amantani Island in Lake Titicaca, found its way onto the record and was an large influence on the album’s theme and artwork. Matt spent a year working on the album, which was finally released on July 24, 2007. A few tracks from SevenAlive, including “Millions,” were rerecorded for the latter release. Though Matt played almost all of the instruments on the record, it did feature a few “local” musicians also attending Principia College. The closing track “Smoke,” for example, featured renown Principia College singer/songwriter George Clements. Matt spent the following summer playing in local places in Northern Michigan promoting the release of the album. A radio interview on the local college radio station WNMC featured three songs, “Millions,” “The Quiet Type,” and “Score,” as well as live performances of new songs. Matt has now moved out of St. Louis, and has release his second and most acclaimed cd yes, Aurorageddon. Influences from this cd are vast, and is "the album I have always wanted to make, something even I have a desire to listen to," in his own words.
