Matt Hopper

Coast to Coast: It's in his native Alaska we meet up with Matt Hopper, a super-talented indie rocker on the rise. After a couple of years of chatting it up with Matt from the road, we have struck up a long-distance friendship. He's shared unreleased tracks and tales from the road. And he is constantly touring, playing before audiences all over the US and Canada.

Up until 2007, Matt's gigs were primarily along the West Coast. But residences and key dates in Nashville and New York have helped identify Hopper and his backing band - the Roman Candles - as a talented band on the rise. Those who attend his intense shows rapidly become supporters of Hopper's promising career. One listen and you will know why:
