Matt Costa Biography

Review The Artist (4)


Matt Costa-photo
Born in Huntington Beach, CA, in 1982, Matt Costa received his first guitar at age 12. While he was always interested in music, even playing in a band in high school, Costa's first love was skateboarding. His dreams of going pro came crashing to an end, however, when he seriously injured his leg in a skateboarding accident at 18. During his year-and-a-half-long rehabilitation period, Costa decided to refocus his energy on songwriting and guitar playing, and began using a four-track to make demos. One of these demos found its way to No Doubt guitarist Tom Dumont, who liked what he heard so much that he offered to produce Costa's music, and soon they had recorded two independently released EPs, Matt Costa and The Elasmosaurus, as well as a full-length early version of Songs We Sing. These caught the ear of Brush Fire Records owner Jack Johnson, who was impressed by the young musician's work and signed Costa to his label and invited him to open his 2005 summer tour. In 2006, Costa's official major-label debut, Songs We Sing (slightly different from the 2005 indie version) was released

PICTURESQUE | Reviewer: victoria | 6/17/09

That's pretty much the best adjective I can think to describe Matt Costa's music.

Undoubtedly, he has a very valuable gift capable of making an exquisite fusion of his beatiful voice and his abilities with the guitar.

I've discovered his music just by chance, since I'm Argentinian, and we don't really hear to the kind of music he as well as jack jhonson do. But if there's an undeniable fact to state, is that each and every one of Matt Costas's songs are enjoyable from beginning to end.

Thumbs up to this incredibly talentous guy and his pictursque music!

Matt the man | Reviewer: Matt Litow | 6/13/07

signed with brushfire records as made by Jack Johnson and I believe his wife.... don't quote me on the wife part.... Matt Costa is friends with jack johnson and appears on a brokedown melody soundtrack as well as the lullabies and singalongs from the film curious george.... Matt Costa has a strong acoustic style which is mellow and at the same time fun and energetic. He manages to move all the way across the musical spectrum in that sense. Matt has a very natural voice and doesn't seem to put to much force on it with the exception of songs like cold december, Matt Costa is a great indie muscian and is more than worthy of listening to.
