Risen out of the embers of Ann Arbor's 70's stooge fest, fired in Detroit's back alley rock clubs and tempered in 90's San Francisco excess... Big Fast Car is now a short blast in a '73 Charger from the Nations Capital, in Charlottesville VA.
The driving force behind Big Fast Car, Matt Singleton, was born and raised in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Matt spent over ten years in the Detroit area music scene. He was a founding member of Dog Soldier, touted as "the best rock band from Detroit in twenty years". Their 1989 "Name Your Poison" charted on over 80 top- twenty college play lists nationwide.
After moving to San Francisco in 1990, Matt founded the Blue Room Studios, where he produced, recorded and played with everyone from local punks and rappers to members of 5 million selling Four Non-Blondes, and Double Platinum Columbia recording artists, Train.
"Power Hitter" his 1997 release with thrash legends Fifty Lashes garnered favorable reviews in CMJ, Flipside, High Times and many more. Songs from "Power Hitter" were also placed in "The Real Thing" an independent film that featured Rod Steiger and Gary Busey. "Super Gravity", his 1999 release with UltraGlide, received similar rave reviews in West Coast press, and airplay on college radio.
In 2000, Matt moved to Charlottesville, VA and hooked up with the noted C-ville rhythm section of Dustin Bugg (drums) and Brian Temples (bass) and formed Big Fast Car. Dustin and Brian have been the foundation of such acts as home taping legends Book of Kills and Virginia pop powerhouse Wisher. They have worked with industry notables such as producer Martin Feveryear (Presidents of the United States of America, John Wesley Harding, and Queens of the Stone Age) and Steve Van Dam (Everything).
