Matt Coffy Band's 2021 album "Dream Believer" showcases their skilled songwriting and southern-boogie sound, which has gained national radio attention and praise. The new album features heavyweight performers including Grammy nominated, Scott Sharrard (Little Feat/Gregg Allman) and Joe Blanton (The Chiefs/ Steve Lynch of Tom Petty, Dan Baird of Georgia Sattleites) adding to the band's powerful southern rock soul sound. With influences in southern boogie and a high-energy live performance style, Coffy and the band have a long history of playing with notable acts and building a dedicated fanbase over their 20-year career. They continue to innovate in the classic southern roots rock revival scene with their dynamic shows including a literal “guitar army” of jaw dropping talent.
