Mancat (Matthew Biegger) has been playing live, writing, and recording music in central Iowa off and on for the better part of 2 decades. The “Mancat” persona developed over the course of the last couple years, during what could be described as a musical and spiritual metamorphosis. Or a “re-inventing”, if you will. An awakening to “medicine music” which is music that has a positive message and is healing to the soul, and environmentally conscientious. Crossing many musical styles and genres, Mancat's repertoire can cater to just about any venues liking and is able to please and entertain nearly any crowd. Mancat is very much a consummate singer/songwriter with great originals and a cover song library of over 200 songs.
“Cutting my teeth on the sunset strip in clubs such as the Troubadour, Whiskey A Go-Go at the age of 17, was definitely a crash course in musical performance, and set the stage for a life dedicated to music”.
Having recently moved back from the west coast to care for a dying parent, he is now currently booking his new act in support of his new record, “The Way Home” here in central Iowa, with plans to hit the road in late October.
