For those who have ever listened to Bloomington bands Good Luck and Memory Map, you should be now be familiar with the bands’ shared musician Matt Tobey. Those particularly familiar with Matt would know his solo work as Matty Pop Chart and various past bands including Abe Froman and singing and touring with Kimya Dawson.
Whether you live in Bloomington, grew up in Michigan, or have caught a chance to see Matt on tour, I hope you’ve taken a few moments to meet and get to know the extraordinary person that he is. Beyond being a talented and fun musician, Matt is one of the kindest people I have ever met, which makes it that much easier to relate to the stories that come out of his head and into his music.
Recently, music blog Mind Equals Blown did an interview with Matt (over Skype–yay technology!), which includes some great stories about his musical past and present. It’s really well-written and a fun read, so please check it out here.
