Matt Dmits has been writing and performing music in the Detroit area and the Midwest since the late 1990’s. Working as a vocalist, songwriter, and guitar player, he has shared the stage with numerous local and national artists- both as an accompanist and as a stand-alone performer of Detroit Americana.
Dmits recorded his first solo effort, Bury Me With My Guitar, with renowned Detroit producer Jim Diamond at his Ghetto Recorders Studios in Detroit and mastered it at Woodshed Studios in Oak Park, Michigan with Ed Sertage. The six-song EP was released in May, 2012 and featured prominent Detroit musicians Ty Stone, Don “Doop” Duprie, Bobby Emmett, Pete Ballard, Matt Van and Vinnie Dombroski.
His latest release, February 2018’s Thinnest of Threads, sees him return to Woodshed Studios and Ed Sertage for a full length, 11-song LP, available for digital download and pressed at Detroit’s Archer Record Pressing.
Dmits continues to collaborate, write, and perform with a hard working spirit that matches the area he proudly calls home.
