Matt Steele  & The Corvette Sunset

Halifax, Nova Scotia

Matt Steele & The Corvette Sunset blend the hook-laden, soul-searching songwriting of Tom Petty with the frantic, frazzled, up-tempo power-pop of Elvis Costello, retaining just a tinge of Steele’s moonshine-soaked Kentucky roots.  Their debut album, “Half Girl Half Ghost,” is a surprisingly vulnerable and honest look at coping with emotional turmoil, and the doubt, anxiety and heartbreak that comes with navigating relationships. With whip-tight arrangements that sound like they developed organically from late night jam sessions, exorcising demons by hammering them into songs over time, Matt Steele & The Corvette Sunset sound less like their namesake suggests, as a clichéd happy ending to a movie, and more like Thelma and Louise careening off a cliff at breakneck speed. In November 2020, Matt begins a solo journey with the launch of Apparition Edition, a (mostly) solo acoustic re-working of six tracks off 2018’s Half Girl Half Ghost. - Matt Steele & The Corvette Sunset
