Matt Vagrant



Matt Vagrant, front-man for Weird With Cats, solo artist, and one-half of the duo Mistaken For Brothers, is one of the more prolific songwriters in Ottawa today. With 4 EPs released within the last 3 years between all 3 projects, Matt has been writing original music for over a decade. With a voice echoing traces of Neil Young and Thom Yorke, and a unique lyrical style that places reality and fantasy within close proximity, Matt's music invokes a sense of travelling and adventure mixed with dark themes from his own perspective. His narratives effortlessly invoke feelings of loss and renewal, campfire stories that he injects with his own wry humour, a by-product of having lived or else conceived of such experiences.
