In 2006, Matt Chylak decided he wanted to do a little more with his guitar than strum "Time of Your Life" over and over. so he started writing songs, usually about girls and feeling alone, but not always. A few years later, he has played around a hundred shows around the Newtown/Yardley, Pennsylvania area, and become fairly well known in those music circles. In the summer of 2008 he started recording his debut full length, "Slipped Off the Sleeve," with a full backing band and some other friends. The title comes from Matt's hope for his music, that it can be an honest, accurate representation of his feelings and aspirations.
In the summer of 2009, Matt worked with some of his good friends again, this time at Overlook Studios to create his new, iTunes-exclusive EP, "The Sound of Summer." The five-song set tells the story of a summer come and gone, with all the joys and pitfalls of a few months in the life of any teenager. From the feel-good chorus of 'Veracruz 7502' to the wistful vestiges of 'Edge of Summer', Matt's new EP takes listeners on a roller coaster ride that ends sooner than anyone (including Matt) would like.
Currently, Matt is working on some new music for an as-yet-untitled third record that promises more catchy, insightful, and honest songs about his family, hopes, and aspirations.
