Matt Townsend and The Wonder of the World is an Indie alt-folk-rock band from Asheville, NC whose music is born from Matt's distinctive voice and world-weary, insightful lyrics. The band formed in 2014 with the creation of singer/songwriter Matt Townsend's debut LP "Matt Townsend and the Wonder of the World".

With influences ranging form Bob Dylan and Neil Young to Neutral Milk Hotel, Modest Mouse and Radiohead, Matt Townsend and the Wonder of the World crafts an electrified folk-inspired modern sound.

In a live context the band traverses diverse musical terrain; from soaring psych-infused rock songs to quiet contemplative folk songs, with many stops in between. Every song and every show attempts to create a journey for the listener.
