International Blues Challenge 2023 Semifinalist
Matt subsequently became the youngest artist ever invited to perform at a Woodstock Festival, taking the stage for Woodstock '99 alongside his brother at the age of 10. Through his teen years and young adulthood, Lomeo never stopped performing, following his muse to New York City and later Memphis, TN, where he held court at Beale Street's World-Famous Club Handy.
In the spring of 2018 Matt relocated to Los Angeles, CA, where he hosts the Backline Jam at Ireland's 32 Pub, frequented by some of the top Americana musicians in Southern California. The jam provides a valuable workshop for trying out new compositions and fostering connections in the musical community. He also has a hand in the Country scene, hosting his "Hollywood Hayride" monthly at the Maui Sugar Mill Saloon. Matt is a full-time member of Angela Petrilli & The Players and is featured on Angela's all-original debut, The Voices EP (May 2023). Also in spring 2023, he joined the Los Angeles College of Music as an adjunct instructor in the vocal department.
Matt's truest voice has emerged through his songwriting. His first all-original album produced by Grammy-nominee Terry Wilson (Teresa James, Eric Burdon, Jimmy Reed, Paul Kossoff) was released June 24, 2022.
Matt Lomeo and band represented the Santa Clarita Valley Blues Society in the International Blues Challenge 2023 in Memphis, TN, reaching semifinals.
