Matt Whipkey is an acclaimed singer songwriter and guitarist from Omaha, NE. Having earned the Omaha Arts and Entertainment Awards for artist and album of the year in 2013, Whipkey’s live band features some of the city’s finest. In a city internationally renowned for top-tier songwriting, Whipkey balances musical execution with artistic instinct.
According to rock and roll connoisseur Tim McMahan, “He’s something of a throwback to a simpler time, before the advent of slumped-shouldered, indifferent indie hip-stars who go out of their way to ignore the audience with dollops of you’re-lucky-we’re-even-performing contempt. Whipkey, on the other hand, is the ultimate stage performer, not satisfied if even one crowd member isn’t “into it,” whether it’s on a tiny lounge stage or at a mammoth amphitheater. Whipkey was born for the arena.” – Lazy-i.com
