Matt Poss was born and raised just south of Effingham Illinois on a twenty acre organic vegetable farm. He grew up hunting rabbits, squirrels, turkeys and deer in the woods around Effingham County. In 1998, Matt graduated from SIUC with a degree in Wildlife Biology and earned his Master’s in Business from EIU with a focus on Marketing in 2008.
From 2005 to the present, Matt has traveled the globe, literally, playing music in fourteen countries and nearly every state in the union. Although Matt is just as well known for his singing these days, his passion for agriculture, hunting, and land take up most of his time nowadays. Matt married a T-Town girl and moved “across the creek” to Teutopolis and, with his wife Leah, they are raising their two daughters to appreciate, respect and love the land, just as he did as a kid.
