Born to a union carpenter and a seamstress, Matt Sever moved from the West Coast to Austin in the mid-1990s searching for better opportunities for his music career. An electrician by day and folk artist by night, Sever, still in his work attire, would actually introduce himself as “Matt the Electrician” as a way to explain his appearance to the crowd. The name apparently stuck. Combining banjo picking, acoustic guitar strums and minimal percussion, Sever finds a way to blend his charming lyricism into the mix to produce really interesting folk songs that keep the listener eager to hear more.
