About Matty Lewis
Zebrahead is an American rock band from Orange County, California, United States. Formed in 1996, the band has released twelve studio albums to date.
Matty Lewis joined Zebrahead around 2004. Just before this he was in another band (Jank 1000) which had recently toured around the States with Zebrahead, this band happened to break up around the same time as Justin Mauriello left Zebrahead. Leading Matty Lewis to head into the studio to work on a solo project, with assistance from Ed Udhus and Ben Osmundson of Zebrahead, who advised him he should try out for the now vacant vocal position in their own band. Due to the fact that he didn't know any Zebrahead songs, their manager arranged for all their albums to be sent out to him, allowing him to memorise them all. By this time Mauriello, had moved on in music and founded the band I Hate Kate, later renamed to Darling Thieves.
