If Stephen Sondheim had grown up in the post-punk age,
he might have turned out much like Matt Sherwin.
With his dry, satirical lyrics and infectious,
hook-driven power-pop, Matt has emerged in the last
decade as a unique voice on the Antifolk scene.
Initially drawn to the Fort as a local teenager by
performers such as Paleface and Roger Manning, Matt
soon took the stage himself and found an audience
receptive to his frenetic delivery and precocious
sense of irony. Evolving over the next few years from
solo performer to leader of an ace five-piece band,
Matt released his fully realized solo debut 'Cold
Reader' to considerable acclaim in June of 2000.
Why I Am Antifolk
Though his style has developed over the years, Matt
essentially Antifolk in spirit - for his sincere
skepticism, qualified optimism, cockeyed pop
classicism, and for bridging the unlikely gap between
Bob Mould and Sweeney Todd.
