In depth with Relient K’s Matt Thiessen

By Dan Kane – November 19, 2015 entertainment editor

Matt Thiessen, lead vocalist and chief songwriter for Relient K, a band born in Canton in 1997 when he was a high schooler, was perfectly willing to take the Ticket pop quiz. Relient K will play the House of Blues in Cleveland on Nov. 27 — yes, Black Friday.

Q. You got married this year — what can you tell me about this young lady?

A. “I met Emily (Wright) in L.A. a few years ago. She’s one of the few talented female songwriters out there who knows her way around Pro Tools. I was fortunate enough to get to work with her, and through that experience discovered that she is an incredibly intelligent and lovely person. At our wedding, her father described her as someone who ‘doesn’t suffer any fools.’ That part of her personality has set me on an improved course in life. I’m quite lucky to have her.”
