Orange County native Matt Costa is always happiest on the road. Coming off a strong year of touring around his critically acclaimed album of California story songs Santa Rosa Fangs, Costa is set to release new music throughout 2019, starting with a new single in May. Costa has a knack for writing timeless, sweetly tragic songs reflective of his big heart with an edge of folk rock.

Icon declares JD & The Straight Shot “Is an absolute powerhouse that continues to dazzle crowds.”
Multi-platinum selling singer-songwriter Matt Hartke has been working under the radar writing for artists such as Adam Lambert, Avicii, Cash Cash, The Chainsmokers, Kygo, Max Martin, Matisyahu and Tiesto. Matt released his first single “Gold” in 2016 which steadily climbed up the Spotify charts currently sitting with over 16+ million plays and charting on the Viral Top50 in several countries.  In 2017 “Gold” was the most spun song on SiriusXM’s Coffee House.
