With roots in Wilson and Rocky Mount NC, the band Matty Begs officially began in the Spring of 2012.  Known for their high-energy live shows, catch Matty Begs and their acoustic-electric party rock at the best clubs, colleges, and beaches the East Coast has to offer.  Matty Begs writes original material that draws heavily upon the bands' influences. Catchy lyrics and sing-along, party-anthem choruses inspired by the likes of Jack Johnson, Michael Franti, G Love, Donovan Frankenreiter, Jason Mraz, Mike Doughty and Sublime, leave the listener feeling good and wanting more.  Live, the band also covers a wide variety of songs, new and old, and infuses them with their own funky upbeat style to encourage the audience to have fun, sing along, and dance.  

Matty Begs has released 3 EPs along with their newest single "Hide Away From The World" which was released on January 4, 2020.  Currently the band is working on a new full length recording to be released at the end of 2021!  Stay tuned and until then, you can download and stream all Matty Begs music here for free!
