“Somebody asked me one time what to expect at one of my shows.  I told them 3 chords and the truth.” ~ Matt Hoggatt

Army soldier, police detective and bourbon street performer are just a few of the job titles on Matt Hoggatt’s resume.  Among them is a list accolades as varied as his choice of former professions, including national songwriting awards, viral YouTube videos, and being the subject of a Jimmy Buffett song. Signed to Jimmy Buffett’s record label, Mailboat Records, Matt’s version of storytelling music combines Americana-country, comedy and trop-rock-folk in a place where three chords and the truth prevail. From the Gulf Coast town of Gautier, Mississippi, Matt has been touring the country in support of his debut album “Hotter Than Fishgrease” and will release a new album in 2014, produced by legendary songwriter Keith Sykes. 

  • Is renaming his current tour to the "making money to replace a broken maytag washing machine" tour.
