With roots in alternative rock and country music, Matt Strachan has been a part of music scenes around the country for the last 13 years. His current project, Matt Strachan and the Hoot Owls, brings him back to his hometown of Helena, MT, where he has become well known for his high-energy country-rock performances.
"Tickets" is Matt's debut album, was released in July of 2016. “Tickets,” produced with Chris Cunningham of Base Camp Studios in Bozeman, ties together Matt’s personal struggles and joys with general reflections on life in Montana. From the challenge of addiction, recent public access fights in Montana’s courts, and the happiness his two children bring him every day, “Tickets” traverses a landscape deeply rooted in Montana.
“Tickets” earned Matt a spot as the Unsigned Artist of the Week in Music Connection Magazine in October of 2016. The album also brought Matt to bigger stages across Montana, landing him spots on the main stage at The Bob Marshall Music Festival (with Deer Tick and Dead Man Winter) and a seat at the growing Red Lodge Songwriter’s Festival in the summer of 2017.
