Action Band: Matt Costa

SOUNDS LIKE: Warm and gentle retro pop replanting Donovan or Paul McCartney in a California cul-de-sac.

Matt Costa: I think my perception of the world is the first thing that skating changed for me -- I was no longer looking at a sidewalk as just a place to walk, or a set of stairs as just something to climb, or even the bumps in the road the same way. I think that is the goal in art as well -- to change your perception of the world.
