Matthew is a classically trained musician who started playing Viola in 5th grade. Receiving praise from both students and teachers for his natural ability, he decided to pursue music further. In high-school his father became terminally ill so he had to drop out of school to take care of him. The song "Forgotten" is dedicated to his father and all the pain he went through, what he did for his country, and how a man as great as him can be Forgotten by society. Matthew started playing guitar at the age of 18. He switched to bass when he met a group of unique individuals who needed a bass player. For 3 years he contributed to the band with his melodic bass style, often playing lead bass while holding the bottom end. In 2012 he had to depart from the band due to various reasons. Matthew now resides in Humboldt AZ where he enjoys hiking and exploring the outdoors, writing short stories, and working on music. Stay in touch because he will have exciting music coming soon.
