Matty Kaspak was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York, and moved out to Long island in the early 70's. Pushed by his parents at about 4 years old to piano lessons...something he wishes now he paid more attention to. By his teen years he was playing guitar and putting bands together. These bands would play parties, then later, dances, concerts until it was clubs and bars.
Matty has played everywhere from outdoor shows, to Roseland Ballroom. When he got the writing bug, it never left. Learned whatever he could about recording and even finding jobs as a recording engineer for over 15 years. From the old days of analog recording to the digital age.
In the past he wrote a song called "OutRegis" for the talk show host, Regis Philbin. Regis had him on his show twice and they went into business together selling the tune. He took Matty around with him and Kathie Lee for two years to their shows.
Matty wrote several commercial jingles for local radio and even wrote a novelty tune for a California record company that sold well in Germany. He wrote all the music for a children's program that taught kids to do the right thing in different situations. Between writing and co-writing, Matty has a collection of over 1,200 songs.
Matty is always writing and recording something. His military song "We Owe It All To You", is his proudest moment, with the military getting involved and giving Matty over 1,000 pictures to choose whatever he wanted for the slide show that his wife Donna put together, and having over 14,000 hits on Youtube.
Matty is married to his wife Donna for 15 years now, and still writes with the passion he had so many years ago. For over 2 years Matty has been taking some classic cover tunes and a few originals and preparing for a bar/club act and formed "Emerald City". He was out there testing the waters, and now with Allison Simms will be playing out on Long Island and Brooklyn.
