Originally hailing from the Pacific Northwest, Matty Ride grew up in the very stomping grounds and hometown of Bing Crosby. It's there that his love for some of the great singers of the American Songbook such as Nat King Cole, Sinatra and of course Bing Crosby, took hold. Now based in Nashville, Matty Ride recaptures the spirit of the American Songbook through his original compositions. His clever rhymes, tongue and cheek topics, and witty lyrics showcase an urbane sense of style and playfulness.
Ask Matty Ride to describe his music and he'll tell you with a laugh "I'm just making the type of music your grandparents probably made your parents to."
