Spellbinding Poet- Lyricist-Singer-Musician. Five words that describe artist/songwriter Matt Urmy. Born in New York City, but raised in Tennessee, Urmy is an indefinable mixture of literary and musical greatness. Self labeled an "Americana" artist, the genre he loves and studies with unabashed passion, Urmy's voice is etched with the weathered years of life, polished by the sad pangs of hope that mirrors the depth of his writing.
Matt has recorded and released four independent records and has published one collection of poems, Ghosts In A House, a collection that was published while a graduate student at Spalding University in Louisville, KY. He completed his undergraduate studies of poetry at The University of Tennessee, Knoxville.
A mesmerizing entertainer, Urmy's live performances captivate and weave listeners between the gritty free verse of the 60's and smoking folk-county blues.
