Matt Menefee has received great accolades as one of the premier banjo virtuosos on the scene today. Matt loves to showcase the unique versatility of the banjo beyond Bluegrass, in styles as diverse as Hip Hop, Rock, EDM, Jazz, and even Classical music. In 2016, Matt had the crazy idea of arranging video game music using the instrumentation for a traditional bluegrass ensemble. The result was The Hit Points record. He credits video game music composers such as Koji Kondo, Yasunori Mitsuda, Michiru Yamane, Nobuo Uematu as some his biggest musical influences and inspirations to pursue music.
Matt has performed/recorded with artists and producers including Matthew Wilder, Vance Powell, Charlie Peacock, Mumford & Sons, Béla Fleck, Jerry Douglas, Bruce Hornsby, Warren Haynes, Dan Auerbach (of the Black Keys), Dan Huff, Jeff Sipe, Big & Rich, Chebacca, DJ Poet, Edward Sharp and the Magnetic Zeros, Bears Den and Old Crow Medicine Show.
