Welcome to my website. My name is Matthew John and I am just a regular person pursuing a dream. While you are here, please browse around and take a listen to my music. You will definitely be inspired and will be able to relate to the messages of my songs. Music is so powerful when it tells a story and that is exactly what I try to do, with each of my songs. My passion for singing, songwriting, and performing goes way back, but I really started pursuing it in 2013. Why 2013 you ask? It was the year my grandfather passed away due to Alzheimer’s and music was important to him and his disease. Actually, he was my Number 1 Fan! Apparently the ‘never give up’ attitude was handed down to me, as I entered this world premature and with the will to survive. Despite the ups and downs of the music industry and life , I keep moving forward with hopes of reaching my star someday.
In October of 2013, I recorded my first single, “You Are There”. Since then, I have upgraded my music to a whole new level, with a new recording studio and producer. I have worked on my EP from January 2017 to May 2017, featuring 4 songs, including 2 brand new songs and 2 remakes of fan favorites. “Let’s Begin Again” and “Shine For Me” are my new releases. The remakes are “You Are There” and “Reach For The Stars”. My new music features a live band and a background singer. As I grow with my music, I am determined to make better music and the best quality songs going forward!
This journey has been amazing and I have been encouraged by family, friends, and strangers. Through their support, I have learned to believe in me and in my music. My songs will continue to be real and from my heart. We only have this moment and I want to make the most of it and everything life has to offer. I will continue to give back and help others, through my music. As I take this ride, bumps and all, stick around, because there is so much more to come and you don’t want to miss a thing. I am an artist with a mission and there is no stopping me now. Finally, I am headed in the right direction and on my way!!
