Matt Horan (Davie, Florida), is the epitome of the drifter musician. He literally has been touring the world since 2005, as a true ambassador of American culture and traditional music preaching the word of Hank Williams and other American country and folk heroes. Roaming through north, central & south America and all over Europe, Horan has given countless concerts from the street corners of Mexico City to concert halls in the performing arts center in Bilbao, Spain & in Buenos Aires, Argentina, to prestigious music festivals like Sziget Budapest . Horan isn’t just a simple song writer but he is also an actor, making his debut as the protagonist in “The Night Watchman” (2016), which he also composed the original movie soundtrack. He’s been touring the US and Europe annually since 2012 and continues to do so as a solo folk artist as well as with a full band.
Better known as the front man of Dead Bronco, where he was recognized by the BBC as most promising artist of 2013 (BBC Music Video Awards); a band which started off as cowpunk but later warped into heavy dark folk. After making the transition, he started to miss his country roots and decided to start his solo career with “Matt Horan – American Folk Singer”, releasing “Tears From the Mountain” 2020 (a solo act of traditional folk/country mountain music). With the great acceptance of his debut album, he later decided to record a full band album releasing “You Ain’t Country” in 2022, bringing back that old beer drinkin’, honky tonkin’ country sound with “Matt Horan & the C.A.F. Band”. Known for his signature vocal style with enchanting yodels from the high hills mixing traditional country, blues, and western swing with a don’t tread on me attitude.
