Bearheart / Bio

In 2007, Matthew and Chris met in a class while attending Middle Tennessee State University in Murfreesboro, TN. They began very informally playing music for small gigs with no thought of furthering their musical career. By the end of 2011, they were ready to throw in the towel and end their cooperative musical endeavors. They ended up becoming roommates in East Nashville with the thought of being able to jam at the house just for the fun of it. In March of 2012, Taylor entered the picture and reignited Matthew and Chris' passion for playing. A few months later, Trey and Caleb hopped on the bandwagon, creating an amazing group of guys who all loved to play folk music.
