Mark Matkevich in The Spies Band!

IMTA alum Mark Matkevich band has been working with his band The Spies. According to their website: "Based in Los Angeles and formed in late 2005, The Spies have been perfecting their brand of indie-pop for five years. With two self-released albums (‘Old Ghosts’ 2007 and ‘Televolution’ 2009), two music videos, one national tour, and multiple song placements in Film and TV (CW, FOX, ABC) the band has been building a very loyal fan base since 2006. Conceived as collaboration between longtime friends and Philadelphia transplants, Leo Francis and Mark Matkevich, The Spies have evolved into much more with the addition of Adrian Barrio and Dylan Giagni.With new music and plenty of new shows on the horizon, it’s a good time to become a fan of The Spies."

Mark attended the New York, New York 1998 IMTA Convention where he won “Talent of the Year” for his age division. Mark wowed the audience during the talent showcase with his touching rendition of the love song “At This Moment.” Since attending IMTA, he has guest-starred in Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, NCIS, Drake and Josh, Dexter and Ed as well as the blockbuster hit movie, Sweet Home Alabama.
