MATT QUINN Matt Quinn, frontman and songwriter of Mt. Joy, was only a couple of months into law school when Mt. Joy's single "Astrovan" began racking up hundreds of thousands of plays on Spotify at release. Quinn had just moved out to L.A. from Philadelphia and was attending night classes and working a full-time job when he realized he should drop out and give the music a real shot.
Since then, Mt. Joy has flourished into a 5 piece band that has spent the past six years making music, touring the world, and playing alongside some of their greatest influences. With three studio albums and a live record, Mt. Joy has gone on to achieve three Top 5 AAA radio singles, their single "Silver Lining" went gold in US and Canada, and they've made appearances on Jimmy Kimmel, James Corden, Stephen Colbert + more.
Perhaps one of the most foundational pieces of Mt. Joy's music points back to Quinn and his songwriting - which has been praised by Billboard, Rolling Stone, NPR, and The Guardian. In between a heavy touring plan with over 150,000+ headline tickets sold this year, Quinn has recently worked in collaboration with other artists such as Noah Kahan, Joy Oladokun, Adam Melchor, Richy Mitch & The Coal Miners, Julia Pratt and more.
