About Me

I'm Geoff Matesky and I am a solo singer/guitarist and producer based on the Connecticut shoreline, with proximity to Southern New England and the New York Tri-State area. Geoff Matesky, Singer/Guitarist and those guitars are not all mine! I play an eclectic mix of classic acoustic, alternative and modern rock at clubs and bars as well as weddings, indoor and outdoor events, including benefits and private parties.

I've been a professional entertainer for over 30 years. I am a graduate of the Hartt School of Music (1990) with a degree in jazz guitar and electronic music and studio production. I’ve been performing professionally as a solo guitarist and vocalist since the mid ‘80s, working all sizes of rooms; from bars and pubs to several thousand seat auditoriums. My formal education in music has given me the tools and the knowledge to adapt to a wide variety of performing situations on-the-fly; knowing what to play and when has always been my specialty. And if I don’t currently have it in my playlist, I can usually add it in no time at all.

The Music. Variety is the key. My mission is to give the people what they want, while paying homage to some of the greatest songs and artists of our time. From Van Morrison, to Sublime, to James Taylor, to Hoagie Carmichael - Something for everyone. Click on any of the links under Demo Music or visit my Demo Music Page for a sampling of my sound and artistic scope, or you can access my demo tracks directly on SoundCloud.com. You can get a complete listing of my repertoire on my song list page.

The Art of the Cover. I am primarily a singer and guitarist; but I also have an education and background in studio production, sound design and arranging as well. As such I have fused some of these skills into my solo acoustic performance using technology to create and reproduce backing tracks live. This gives me the ability to employ a dynamic range of music styles and feels that can fit a wide variety of performance situations. I can go from an up-tempo production on the one hand, to a more intimate straight-up acoustic vibe if needed – whatever the occasion calls for. I invite you to hear this in action on my demo music page and checkout my song list as well. And please feel free to leave me feedback on my contact page. Whether yours is a one-time event, or a longer running engagement, I look forward to working with you to design a great set list for the perfect occasion.

A note about accessiblity: I am a full-time wheelchair user who is extremely mobile, however I do ask that any potential venues for bookings be as wheelchair friendly as possible. Please call or email to discuss logistics or alternate arrangements if necessary.
