Matt Borck is the lead singer & guitarist for the Langley, Canada band YUCA. He is a husband, new father and friend with a passion for music and encouraging others to pursue their hopes and dreams. After living in the UK and arriving back home in BC Canada Matt asked his wife an expansive question: “Are you okay if I pursue my dream of being a musician?” The answer was YES!
Matt has been performing around the world with YUCA for over 8 years and had the pleasure of doing so with amazing band mates – the right combination of dreamers! Along the way, career highlights have been being singled out over hundreds of bands for distinguished awards by leading Canadian stations 99.3FM and 100.5FM; performing multiple times for the 2010 Vancouver Olympics; and having a song picked for Playstation3, Xbox360 Vancouver Olympics 2010 Video Game. YUCA has also built a robust national and international profile based on their mesmerizing and goose-bump inducing live show experience.
This past month has seen Matt and band mates release the much anticipated new album Rebuilding The Fallen Empire (Rising Empire Records) on their second tour this year to Japan - a dream come true for YUCA.
Matt says: “We always heard we could do whatever we dreamed, and we want to give that back to the audience. We want our music to be the voice of encouragement and support for all to pursue their dreams.”
