“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.”
Matt Puccio Jr is a folk singer who acts as a voice for the outdoors, education, and mental health. His songwriting and performances speak to the power of place and the way community can meaningfully change how a group of people interact and support each other. His 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. Starting his professional performance career in the winter of 2018, his professional degree in music as well as his history in education give Matt an edge when it comes to engaging crowds and creating an atmosphere of calm contentment.
Working with local Bend mainstay, Cascade School of Music, Matt's studio is challenged each week with new techniques in fingerstyle guitar, piano, voice, songwriting and music business.
As Member Concierge of the High Desert Music Collective, Matt is building a community from like-minded individuals in the Central Oregon area. First and foremost dedicated to artist empowerment, HDMC helps musicians cultivate connections with fans and brings together neighbors and businesses to support their growth financially and creatively.
