    With his bright green hair and charming personality, Matt Toka has got just the right attitude rock needs.

    Toka spoke exclusively to ARTISTdirect.com for our riveting "See the Music" series, where artists go deep inside the meaning of or inspiration behind a song. He opened up about "Ode to My Family," which has elicited serious reaction from fans! His fans email him, saying they totally relate to it. There's nothing better than that sort of connection when you are an artist.

    Toka told us that "it feels good to know my music can touch people in that way." He also revealed that Everclear's Art Alexakis was a huge influence. He said, "To me, I grew up such a huge Everclear fan and he sang about his dysfunctions and I could relate to it. It's cool to get that response for my music."

    It's all cyclical in the musical world.
