Matt Pond's first love is songwriting. For 20 years he fronted the Philadelphia-born, New York-based indie pop band that is his namesake, releasing 13 full-length albums and countless EPs and singles in that time.
Throughout the years, Pond enlisted a rotating cast of collaborators for recording and touring, including cellists Jim Hostetter, Eve Miller and Shawn Alpay, violinist Rosie McNamara-Jones, drummers Mike Kennedy and Dan Crowell, bassists Matt Raisch and Josh Kramer, and guitarists Jim Kehoe and Brian Pearl. Chris Hansen, producer and guitarist, has been a core member of the group since 2007. Pond relocated to Brooklyn in 2003 and recorded the band’s breakthrough album, Emblems, in 2004. Several months later released their 6th full-length LP entitled Several Arrows Later. 2007 saw the launch of If You Want Blood and Last Light. Holing up in a cabin in Upstate New York, Pond recorded The Dark Leaves with producer Chris Hansen in 2010. 2013 saw the brief removal of “PA” from the band name and the release of The Lives Inside the Lines in Your Hand. In 2015 the band reinstated "PA" and released The State of Gold.
Pond launched 131 Records in 2016 to retain complete control over his musical process, releasing their 11th and 12th albums, Winter Lives and Still Summer. The band released their final EP, "More Winter Lives", on November 21, 2017, and played their final show on December 16, 2017 in Kingston, New York.
