“A virtuoso of 6 and 12 string acoustic guitar – combines excellent technique and workmanship with the best traditions of American songwriting…..”Blogfoolk, Caserta, Italy
Georgia native, Matthew Kahler has been writing songs ever since he was sharing a house with his large family in Albany, Georgia. Drumming on anything that made sound and singing aloud was one way to get noticed in a family with nine children. In the early ’90s Matthew made his way to Atlanta and became a part of the small group of singer songwriters who helped form the now legendary community of indie music, put together by Eddie Owen of Eddie’s Attic fame. Matthew, Shawn Mullins, the Indigo Girls, Jennifer Nettles, Clay Cook, John Mayer, Andy Offutt Irwin and more started what we now think of as Georgia indie music at its finest. Matthew is so respected among his peers that he receives accolades from John Mayer saying that “Matthew has written some of my favorite lines.” Kristian Bush of Sugarland calls Matthew “the unleashed one,” and Zac Brown recalls that, Matthew Kahler is one of the reasons I started songwriting”. Kahler is and has been a performer’s performer, a writers writer. Live, off the cuff, out of control and within 3 feet of a mic stand is where he’s at his best.
