Matt Borrello is a traveling singer and guitar player with a repertoire of traditional folk, classic rock, and contemporary original songs. Born and raised in the small town of Dighton, MA, Matt started playing guitar at 14. Within a year he was writing and gigging and he hasn’t really done much other than that since. Now in his mid-twenties, Matt plays regularly in the Boston, Southern Mass, and Rhode Island area, usually as a solo acoustic act. Matt’s insightful songwriting often blends political and personal themes. His passionate performances have earned him recognition in various New England talent showcases and songwriting contests, most notably at the Boston Folk Festival Youth Songwriting Contest. He has also traveled to perform at prestigious venues in the Mid-Atlantic and the Carolinas. Matt performs his own songs and also offers energetic interpretations of classic folk, rock, and blues from the 50’s, 60’s, and 70’s. He has a not-so-secret fondness for Bob Dylan songs, and performs with Art Tebbetts from New Bedford and Danielle Miraglia from Boston in a handful of annual Bob Dylan Tribute Shows. Matt is also a guitarist-for-hire and loves spontaneous collaborations with other musicians. He has always appeared comfortable on coffeehouse stages, and is equally at home playing a rowdy bar, intimate house concert, or outdoor festival.
Matt Borrello’s debut album, “Don’t Turn Around”, was self-released in 2010. Since then he has released a few live and studio EPs, gaining some airplay in the Northeast and elsewhere. His newest album of original music "A Dollar & A Kiss" was recorded at Fox Run Studio in Sudbury, MA.
