POM93 Matt Wibby “Let There Be Hope”

• March 13th, 2020
I am a South Portland songwriter, producer and graphic artist. My business website is www.mattwibby.com and my Youtube channel is  https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC7qHsi4RtU08ObRemf4XrpQ. Just a bit of caution about the channel: we are just starting to build it, so there aren't many videos on there yet.
 
For graphic arts, I sell t-shirts at tees.edbliss.com. Eventually, I will move that site over to tees.mattwibby.com, though.
 
I have been writing songs and publishing EP's since 2004, mostly under my pen name, Ed Bliss. I recently changed my business model and started writing music for licensing in movies and for performers under my new company, Matt Wibby Arts.
 
I play out pretty regularly with my band, the Funky Vulcans
(https://www.facebook.com/FunkyVulcans/). I play bass in the band. I play guitar and sing at open mics in the Portland area as myself :>D
