At 29 years of age, Matt Costa has already had quite a productive career. He has released five independent albums, two EPs that he recorded himself and three albums on the Brushfire Records label. No grass grows under this young man’s feet.
Matt Costa met No Doubt guitarist Tom Dumont and began recording music in Dumont’s home studio. After releasing a couple of albums that way, Costa toured with Jack Johnson as his opening act. Obviously he made an impression on the Hawaii-based musician as he signed him to his own label, Brushfire Records. Having his next trio of albums released on Brushfire Records has given Costa more exposure. As a result some of his songs have been used in films like Curious George, Arctic Tale and I Love You, Man. Tons of exposure also came as a result of Apple using his song “Mr. Pitiful” in the commercials for their iPhone 3Gs.
An act who has honed his craft through plenty of touring, Matt Costa has toured with the likes of Jack Johnson, Modest Mouse, Oasis, Ryan Adams, and Death Cab for Cutie. The California native has been all over the world with his music.
