Matt Kolb was born and raised in Oshkosh WI. He began his musical journey at the age of 13. "Music has always pulled at me, from a child singing in the car with my family, to now, playing with with the church worship team". He began playing drums at 13, and singing and playing guitar at 15. Being heavily influenced by the late 80's heavy metal scene he found himself playing in several all original acts in the fox valley from high school to the late 90's. He then found a love for a darker, more brutal style, writing and playing in extreme metal bands until 2010. Although he had felt the calling for years, it became evident to him that he couldn't run from God's voice. In 2010 he rededicated his life to Christ and began a new journey. "I just want to serve, whether it be cleaning the church, playing a benefit concert, or going on mission trips. I am giving myself to the Lord to use as He sees fit" Since 2010 he has written over 30 songs speaking of his trials, glorifying God, and encouraging his brothers and sisters of Christ. "Glory be to God, I couldn't write a song with an acoustic guitar 2 years ago. Now they just pour out of me" With hopes of carrying out God's plan, and encouraging through his music ministry 12:27 Ministries (1Cor 12:27), Matt Kolb is a soulful up and coming local talent.
