Acknowledging his passion for music, on Matt’s 15th birthday his father booked him professional studio time. Ultimately, after graduating high school he decided that the U.S. Marine Corps was where he wanted to be. In 1990, he was deployed to the Persian Gulf, where he fought in the ground war for the liberation of Kuwait. While lying in a foxhole, after attending a unit memorial service, he wrote “When Brothers Fall”. The song was a dedication to his friends and fellow Marines who were killed in combat.
Today, at 40, Matt is the author of over 400 songs. He currently lives in Vancouver, Washington with his wife and dog, where he continues to write and produce music every day. He is affiliated with BMI as both a Songwriter and Publisher.
