Around Matt Fockler's hometown of Montrose, South Dakota, he specializes in dry-stack stone, mosaic tile, and other building projects that require an artist's touch.
Matt's other art is lesser known, outside of a few people who have been lucky enough to hear him sing around a campfire or in a friend's kitchen. For years, Matt and his friends traveled between Missouri, Texas, Montana, and South Dakota, working construction and remodeling jobs to pay their way. As they traveled, they wrote songs and sang them--often just for each other.
A gifted song-writer, two of Matt's songs were recently included on Jonathan Byrd and the Pick Up Cowboys' Latest album release. His songs have been covered by many notable Folk/Americana artists, including Jonathan Byrd, Charlie Roth, Anthony DaCosta, and the Steep Canyon Rangers.
