Matt Mays was born in Hamilton, Ontario, but grew up in Nova Scotia. The 38-year-old started off as a member of The Guthries and then moved on to perform solo and with his backing band, El Torpedo.

The lifestyle of a musician is perfect for this gypsy. He is a traveler at heart having spent time living in Costa Rica, Mexico, New York, Hawaii, Indonesia, and California. He is one of those rare truly authentic performers. Every line of every song that he sings means something to him. His sound encompasses rock and roll, soul and folk. Over his career he has won several East Coast Music Awards, been nominated for four Juno Awards and won one in 2014 when his album Coyote won Best Rock Album of the Year.
