“Puccio’s stripped-down folk stylings and emotionally charged falsetto create an atmosphere of intimacy... I felt myself aligning my own experiences with the lyrics and the heartache they carry.”
Matti Joy is a folk singer who acts as a voice for the outdoors, education, and mental health. Her songwriting and performances speak to the power of place and the way community can meaningfully change how people interact and support each other. A lyrical voice and delicate fingerpick style of guitar draws the listener in, simultaneously relaxing them and reminding them to be intentional in their day to day interactions with one another. Matti has an edge when it comes to engaging crowds and creating an atmosphere of calm contentment thanks to a history as an educator.
Working with local Bend mainstay, Cascade School of Music, Matti's studio is challenged each week with new techniques in fingerstyle guitar, piano, voice, songwriting and music business.
In addition to her musical ventures, Matti Joy is currently writing a modern fantasy solar-punk adventure story! Be on the lookout for Roots and Wolves, a soon-to-be radio drama and graphic novel.
