Matt Hornell is a singer and a songwriter from Newfoundland and Labrador. After bursting onto the St. John’s music scene with live shows that showcased his unflagging energy, Hornell’s award-winning debut album, released in 2010, firmly established him as a vital new voice in the songwriting community of Atlantic Canada.
On the heels of his debut release, Hornell received four Music NL awards – including Entertainer of the Year and the Rising Star Award. He has shared stages with such talented musicians as Elliott Brood, Sloan, David Francey and Brian Borcherdt and brought his songs to shows and venues all across Canada.
Matt currently makes his home in Branch – a small picturesque community on the Southern Avalon and continues to delight fans with his unique stage presence and audience interaction. Matt makes a regular early appearance at the Newfoundland Embassy Pub and Eatery on Friday evenings where he performs a three hour show to an appreciative audience!
