Matt Felts featured in Canton Repository

The Monument Quartet’s Matt Felts, a tenor from my neck of the woods, was recently featured in the Canton Repository after the Monument Quartet made a stop in Canton, Ohio to sing at the Stark County Fair. [EDIT, 11/6/10: Regrettably, the link seems to be broken, so it has been removed.] I have to confess–it’s a concert I missed simply because I forgot it. I’m moving to a new job, and got busy enough that a some things simply escaped me. The article contains some biographical information on Felts:

Matt Felts used to sit in the Palace Theatre watching gospel singers and country music acts perform.

Today, he takes the stage, opening for the likes of up-and-coming artists Dierks Bentley, Josh Turner and Mark Wills.

In just two years, Felts has gone from singing with local groups to singing on a national level.

Monument Quartet is keeping busy, recording a live DVD a couple of weeks ago. From everything I’ve heard, their taping went well. I haven’t heard when it is to be released.
