Founded in --2004

Style --punky folk rock

Influenced by --Green Day, Billy Joel, Bob Dylan, the Beatles, Eminem, Tupac Shakur

Notable --Pless said his solo debut, Requiems for Wishing Wells, is "a soundtrack for a dying dream." He and the full band will tour New England in support of it this fall, he said.

Quotable --"I like to kind of change the traditional image of the singer/songwriter John Mayer type because it's all kind of the same old hat right now," Matt Pless said. "That's a cool sound and all, but it's never been what I'm really into. I'd rather do something with a little more bite."

Hear Matt Pless tomorrow on the club stage at Sonar, 427 E. Saratoga St. Doors open at 8 p.m. Tickets are $10. Call 410-327-8333 or go to sonarbaltimore.com. For more information about the band, visit mattpless.com.
