"Americana and country that curve in and out of the rock and roll realm. Moran’s music is sweet, in tune, and hip in nature. A little Paul Simon combined with a bit of Hootie and the Blowfish..."

"a delectable mix of crowd pleasing original songs… Americana/Country… lyrically rich melodies, throw them into a cocktail shaker and you have the yummy concoction that is Matt Moran & Arrogant Sage"

Caroline Cha, USC Songwriters

I had a performance later that evening in Orange County, so, even though their flight was early evening, I took them at approximately 1:30pm. My goal was to avoid traffic, get down to Orange County early, and work at a coffee house […]
As with most blog entries, spelling, grammar, and usage are all subject. I’ll correct as I go… or not. Alternate title: How to Ensure Your Kids Shut You Out of Their Life Regarding the meme that says, “This should be posted in all schools and work places” and attributes some “advice” to Bill Gates.

I wrote this song soon after my home in Arizona was destroyed in a Monsoon storm. The song came about when friend and local businessman, Doug Bruhnke, upon seeing me on the news talking about losing everything joked, “All the press you ever wanted.” I replied and said, “All the press I NEVER wanted!” That […]
