about

Born and raised in the small town of Somersville, CT, Matt Sciaretta has been playing drums since the age of 7. He cut his teeth on rock, blues and jazz throughout his teens and twenties with the direction of Sal Raniello, Tony Campanelli, Richard Sadlon and Noel Monet. During these formative years, Matt was heavily influenced by master drummers Art Blakey, Will Kennedy, and Peter Erskine. He received his bachelors of music from the Hartt School of Music in 1998. He spent seven years in the southern end of CT playing with friends between Hartford and NYC.

While living in Monroe, CT, Matt owned and operated a multimedia and music production studio. Recording and producing over 100 music performers, he learned the ins and outs of project management and session flow.

In 2002, he moved to Kingston Springs, TN. He has enjoyed the last 10 years becoming part of the diverse fabric of the Nashville music scene. Matt has developed a variety of styles from jazz to rock to bluegrass. He plays drums regularly for the Dean Martinis, Wah Watusi and the Lonesome Pine Ramblers as well as a growing studio session schedule. Striving for constant growth as a musician, Matt also writes music on guitar and piano. His compositions have been played on public radio, soundtracks for training and sales presentations and commercial work.

In 2013, Matt and his family moved to Franklin, TN. What's left of his time he enjoys spending with his family and two great kids, nature, being active and living a heathly, balanced lifestyle.
