I'm Matthew Moran. An LA based songwriter, author, and consultant.

My father played banjo. I remember him recording Dylan's "Blowing in the Wind" on a little cassette player. I took that tape and played it til it wore out.

I picked up a beautiful classical Guild we had at the house, took a Pete Seeger banjo book ("The Red BooK") and learned the chords for some of the folk music my dad was playing... starting with, "The Crawdad Song"

I started writing songs at 12 years old and haven't stopped.

My influences range from Led Zeppelin, Gordon Lightfoot, Tom Petty, Kris Kristofferson, John Mellencamp, Fleetwood Mac - to more contemporary, Shawn Mullins, Fallout Boy, Ray LaMontagne, and much of the pop-punk my youngest daughter listens to.

I love the stage, love telling stories, and find life and people amazing!
