Matt Hopper is an American troubadour with rock and roll in his veins, a weathered voice and blues hands. (This guy is totally legit and so is his band. We first wrote about him in 2006 and he's only gotten better since then.) Though currently based in Idaho, Hopper cut his teeth on the Alaskan music scene - where he still works, writes and records. Hopper has released six albums, both solo and with his band The Roman Candles.
