Born and raised in a small farm town in Ohio, Matt has never travelled too far away from his roots. Attending Cedarville University in his home town studying audio production, allowed him to hone in his songwriting close to home and release two records before graduation. Searching (2009) and Honest Music (2011)
Influenced heavily buy artist like, Steven Curtis Chapman, Garth Brooks, Clint Black, Newsboys, Third Day, George Strait and Chris Tomlin, Matt’s music has found a home both in and outside of the church.
Playing over 100+ events all across the midwest, he is happily welcomed to play original concerts or lead worship in churches, coffee shops, personal homes and charity events. Having spent two separate years (2014, 2018) writing recording and releasing a brand new song each week in a project dubbed, 52 For The Year, Matt continues to use music and songwriting in hopes to comfort the afflicted and confront the comfortable.
Matt has two full length releases Traded It All (2016) and In The Gray (2017) as well as two shorter projects, Hymns EP (2017) and Meet The Music Acoustic EP (2019) with more music to be released soon.
