: Matt McIntosh lyrics
Armed with little more than an acoustic guitar, backing track and more street cred than a Times Square hobo, longtime proponent of the American hardcore-punk movement, Matt McIntosh emerges from New England's sideroads with a homegrown effort of genre-defying strength and depth.
McIntosh, along with a handful of artists who also came up in that venerable scene during the 80s and 90s, seem to reflect what is fast becoming a potent new generation of American singer-songwriter.

In early 2007 McIntosh began recording and performing using his proper name, producing a dynamic more akin to traditional American singer-songwriters than the genre he is known for. During the summer of 2007 a handful of what were believed to be McIntosh's home recordings turned up on file sharing music sites under the heading The Basement Demos. As of November 2007, McIntosh has officially released The Basement Demos via free download, exclusively through the popular music scrobbling site Last.fm.
