Hello! I'm Matt, thanks for stopping by. We all know modern music production is often a solitary endeavor, with all of us hammering away at our laptops in isolation. I often work that way myself, but I was also lucky to come up playing in bands, making music in real time with folks who became friends for life, so I always aim to prioritize the social aspect of making music. I intentionally make space for collaboration in my life and work, I would love to hear more about your project and help you realize your vision while adding something special to the proceedings.

My background is primarily in indie rock/pop. I excel at making those types of records, and from my experiences I’ve gained a unique perspective that I bring to my pop productions. I am interested in the full range of fidelity, from the most lo-fi indie rock to sparkling pop-sheen—my favorite productions make room for both. I love the studio, but I’m interested in purely DIY production as well, so I’m ready to work within your budget. Let’s hatch a scheme and make an amazing record together.

    I am very happy with the result I got with Matt, he is an amazing lyricist. We worked together on 10 songs, Matt was the best possible choice. He is a real professional, committed and responsible person.He did a fantastic job. He usually offered alternatives, always striving for the best solution. It's amazing how much he identified with the song and the theme. Magical ideas, perfect lyrics. Definitely the best lyricist that I worked so far! I can’t wait for the next project.
