Ever since Matthew burst on to the scene he’s been receiving accolades from industry insiders. Craig Bauer says, “Matthew is the kind of artist you can spend a career searching for and never find.” That’s high praise coming from Grammy® award-winning producer whose credits include Kanye West, Rihanna and Justin Timberlake. Initially, these recorded songs were released on SoundCloud and within one day they charted on the top 10 in the Singer/Songwriter section of the site. The track, “Marry Me,” locked down the #1 spot and remained there for nearly two weeks.
In addition to working with Bauer, Matthew also composed “On My Own” for our Midcoast Music Artist Songs catalog. Matthew’s talents have also been discovered by music supervisors that have licensed many of his songs for TV including his song “Still” for this PSA for A&E Television about mental health awareness. The spot aired for several weeks on Lifetime and featured Oscar-winning actors like Jennifer Hudson, Octavia Spencer and more.
