Matt Hanegraaff's love for music began at a young age. Growing up his parents graciously let him play all their records on the home stereo system, and he soon fell in love with the sounds of John Denver, Simon and Garfunkel, The Beatles, and Beethoven. When he discovered instruments like piano and guitar, and how they helped give accompaniment to the thoughts and emotions in his head, his love for music grew. Matt has always written songs about life. Through good or hard times, songwriting has been Matt's way of processing emotion, and the songs that come out are truly a part of him. Matt lives in Holland Michigan with his wife and daughter, and works as a worship artist at Faith Reformed Church.
