Introducing Matt Costa (Brushfire Recs)

Matt Costa’s rise in the industry centers around good, honest music.  He recorded a demo tape at home in California which eventually was handed out to friends and reached Tom Dumont (guitarist for No Doubt).  Dumont invited Costa over and recorded several of the tracks for him.  This independent release was Costa’s first album Songs We Sing and it was later re-released by Brushfire Records when Costa signed with them.  He can be heard in a duet on Jack Johnson’s soundtrack to the film Curious George.

Costa songs have been featured in films including I Love You Man, Youth in Revolt, and Marmaduke.  Track Mr. Pitiful can also be heard in the iPhone 3GS Commercials.
