Matt Phillips
7 pm to 9 pm

Matt Phillips is a soulful artist that strives to make music people can get behind. Based in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, this young performer and songwriter pens songs with folk and soul roots as deep as the cracks in his weathered acoustic. Whether he’s leading a 7-piece band with a huge, sly-jazzy sound or just flying solo with nothing more than his voice, guitar and the occasional harmonica solo – you can’t help but bob your head. With nearly 300 shows already under his belt and two releases paving the way, Matt is proving himself a confident and unique young performer with a very bright future ahead.
