I made my first record in 1982!
I have produced and recorded tracks for artists both big and small. I have worked across diverse genres, from Country & Americana, to Rock and Heavy Metal, to Rap, Jazz, and Latin music.
I received a Master Certificate in Songwriting and Guitar from Berklee College of Music, and was winner of the Tom Snow Songwriting scholarship in Spring of 2005. I also completed course work in Songwriting for Film & Television. I am well versed in song and lyric form and structure, arrangement, melody and harmony, and music theory. I also completed coursework in Production Analysis in the mid- 2000’s.
I have been studying guitar for over 40 years, and have toured across the country. I can get my way around almost anything with strings, and can perform and arrange keyboard tracks, background vocals, and drum tracks and beats. I consistently deliver instrumental tracks on time and on budget.

Interview with Matt Singleton
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: The Jason Jones Band. New release on March 19, 2021. We are releasing a new single every six weeks this year.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: I use a blended model. You can't beat digital for efficiency and flexibility, but analog on the back end is a must. I came up in the vinyl era, and you can't beat the warmth, and dimension it provides.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Make sure you they ask you about your artistic identity and intention.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Always check you mixes in mono!
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I have been writing, performing, and producing since the 80's. I bring a solid sense of musicality, and sensitivity to the process.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: Pro tools with Universal Audio front end, and Dangerous Music summing on the back end. Selection of Neve, Chandler, AEA, and UAD pre's and more.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Been really digging on Vance Powell and Greg Wells lately. Learned some awesome techniques from them!
