Matt Ferrara

BIOGRAPHYMatt Ferrara is the author of the short story collection Young Drunks in Love and the poetry book Five Seeds Enclosed in a Capsule. As a musician, he was the bass player in the bands Surd (1995-1997) and Johnny Daddy-O and the Telefunken U47s (1997-1998). In 2004, he earned an MFA in poetry from New England College in Henniker, NH. In 2005, he moved to Seoul, Korea and recorded Seoul. After a stint in Montreal, he returned to Boston and recorded Home. The proud father of twin boys, he found little time for musical projects until 2013, when he finally completed an RPM Challenge with Bad Breakups, Worse Haircuts. That ended up being a prolific year, with a second album, Forward March!, and Tongue-in-cheek rap EP, Straight Outta Malden, completed in November and December, respectively. His 2014 RPM Challenge album, Odd Man Out, is about alienation, loneliness, and Superheroes.
