Matt Epp is the quintessential itinerant troubadour. As a young man, Epp grew up moving frequently within Manitoba, where he was entranced with skateboarding, snowboarding, and making videos about the same. In his early twenties Matt had an experience that led him to music. He was left feeling in the innermost recesses of his soul the need to sing. There was a small problem; Matt did not know how to play an instrument, sing, or write songs.
