Matt Chylak is a young singer-songwriter from West Philadelphia. His music exists somewhere on a spectrum between folk songs that aren’t afraid to be catchy and pop songs that aren’t afraid to be honest.
He’s honed his sound in bars, small clubs, and street corners—these are the places where it often resonates best. A poet at heart, words tumble out of his songs like light percussion, telling the same stories that music has always told in his own unique voice. He currently sells collections of his poetry at shows in lieu of recorded material.
For the last few years, he’s been working on a set of heartfelt and oddly boisterous songs for his next album, which is currently titled If You’d Call This Place Home (though to be candid, it changes about once a week). He sincerely hopes you enjoy listening to him play, because it’s his second favorite thing in the world to do.
