Mattson’s music is a unique blend of pop, rock, country, and EDM with a fresh take on the formula of smooth vocals, catchy hooks and old school groove. Led by frontman Greg Mattson, the band is supported by drummer Sam Oliver, keyboardist Charles "CJ" Armstrong, bassist Noah Amick, and violinist Reilly Vegh.
The band’s original songs are immediately accessible and directly echo
Greg Mattson and the bands influences. Greg’s silky smooth vocals and powerful guitar work fuse traditional country blues with classic rock. Sam and CJ's powerful gospel grooves and urban EDM dance beats are backed by Noah's strong rhythmic bass and along with Reilly's unique violin give the band a sound that is truly original.
