Matt’s love for song lyrics was cultivated at an early age.

"There was always music in my house. My dad was the biggest influence on my music because he was such a fan of American rock musicians like Bruce Springsteen, Tom Petty, The Eagles, and Jackson Brown. I remember being six-years-old and my dad explaining to me why Bruce Springsteen's "Dancing in the Dark" was such a good lyric. My ear was trained to listen to the words before I learned to listen to the music."

Matt started taking music seriously in college.

"Just for fun, I would throw some songs on Facebook and YouTube. I started getting good feedback." He entered a lyric content in American Song Writer, a national publication. "I got third place. I submitted another one and got fourth place. After that, I was writing and playing guitar in my room every day."

Making the move to Nashville.

"I wanted to take music seriously, so I pulled the trigger and moved to Nashville. I majored in business at Belmont University and graduated with a degree in entrepreneurship. When I wasn't in class, I spent my afternoons and evenings co-writing music, recording, and performing in writers' rounds – all the stuff you do in Nashville. I submitted another song for the American Song Writer contest, and I won. I was like, 'I'm set. I'm going to make it.' I was this naïve 19-year-old kid.  Obviously, it's not that easy."
