Biography

Matt Stansberry & The Romance is a 9-piece, American Rock ‘N Roll band based in Oklahoma City. The group has developed their own sound by blending American popular music, Blues, R&B, Soul and Funk. Early influences include Buddy Holly, James Brown, The Rolling Stones and Jimi Hendrix. The group is known for their dynamic live shows, which have included extended, 3-hour, non-stop performances.

In addition to releasing an EP from Sun Studio, the band was featured in a PBS Sun Session segment, which is airing nationally on PBS affiliates. The Romance has been actively touring in the Midwest and Southwest since 2014, steadily growing their fan base in new markets; including Chicago, Memphis, Austin, St Louis, Kansas City, Dallas, Oklahoma City, San Antonio, Wichita and Tulsa. The Romance has shared the stage and performed with Wanda Jackson (“Queen of Rockabilly”, Rock ‘N Roll Hall of Fame inductee), Lake Street Dive, The Bar-Kays (Stax Records session band), Gary Busey (Academy Award nominee) and Shawn Stockman (Boyz II Men). Notable performances include the New Year’s Eve Guitar Drop on Beale Street in Memphis, the Oklahoma Governor’s Inaugural Ball, SXSW official showcase, Summer Sounds headliner in Cedarburg, Wisconsin and the first act to perform on the new Jones Assembly stage in Oklahoma City.

Their lastest release, Future Love, is the band’s third studio album which was successfully crowd funded through a Kickstarter campaign that raised over $26,000 – more than their two previous campaigns combined. Recorded at Ardent Studios in Memphis, Future Love covers some new territory, and the band exhibits their inherent funk and soul roots on songs like “In the Future”, “You Got Me Singing Hallelujah”, “Sexy” and “Show Me Some Love”, while the band digs into their classic rock ’n roll roots with “Girl Crazy” and "Crazy Boy”. Closing out the 8-song LP, Matt’s songwriting shines on “Good Love” and the album ender, “Top of The World”.

The album is available as a joint release with Stansberry’s solo album, Past Heartache, Present Hope. The joint release is entitled Past Heartache, Present Hope & Future Love.

Matt Stansberry is an American singer-songwriter, musician, producer and bandleader. As a songwriter and performer, Stansberry’s listeners have come to know him for his signature smooth vocals, uplifting lyrics, improvised guitar solos, and energetic stage performances.

Matt has a strong sense of purpose and vision. His musical message is one of love, hope and unity and there is almost a spirituality in which his songs are written and performed.

His latest solo release, Past Heartache, Present Hope, features appearances from his bandmates over 8 original tracks. Stansberry played a majority of the instruments himself on the these songs, which include a mix of reflective and intimate ballads, as well as up tempo spirituals and songs dealing with both heartache and hope. This solo album is intended to take the listener on a journey, all leading towards the new Romance 8-song album, Future Love, giving Matt’s listeners a total of 16 tracks between both albums.
