Matt brings an immediate creative energy to any stage he lands on and he’s racking up a list of notable New England stages to add to his bio. Some day that list is going to be global and longer than a Dylan song, but we hope that the Rick’s Music stage will always feel like Matt’s home. Reserve your seats now for this very special night.

Genres: Folk / Rock / Blues

Matt Borrello is a singer-songwriter from Southeastern Massachusetts. For five years Matt has performed regularly in the Boston/Providence area, usually as a solo acoustic act, but also as a sideman for other songwriters and as the leader of his band, the Quality Dogs. Matt's insightful lyrics and passionate performances have earned him recognition in various New England talent showcases and songwriting contests, most notably at the Boston Folk Festival Youth Songwriting Contest.

His songs draw their structures from folk, country, blues and rock music. He is a lover of spontaneous collaborations and his songs have highly malleable arrangements. Matt writes from a personal perspective, but his songs are markedly devoid of boring self-pity. He has several protest songs and no breakup songs. Matt has opened shows for well known local and national musicians such as John Flynn, Rick Fetters, Don White, and Kevin So. He has been a part of shows at venues including Club Passim, the Somerville Armory, Rick's Music World, Steve's Backstage Pass, the Taunton River Folk Festival, the Union Coffeehouse and the Soule Homestead Folk Concert Series.

Steve DiPersio -Open Mic Feature April 26, 2012

Steven James DiPersio has been a singer/songwriter since he began to play the guitar at the age of 10. Growing up in Wilmington, Massachusetts, there wasn’t much to do, so DiPersio found his way into the world of playing in bands.

He was the guitarist and one of the writers for such bands as Shiner, Giulio’s Mama, Old Jonesy and Critycal Mass and has recorded with several other musicians.

DiPersio released a solo album on iTunes called “The Storm” in 2010 and also played lead guitar on both Zak Jacobson and the Pryor Convictions albums, also on iTunes.  Recently, DiPersio has been diving into the Folk realm, and that is the act he will bring to his feature here at Rick’s Music World on Thursday, April 26.
