Drum Tracking and Production

Matt Young on SoundBetter

I've been happy to have played on or produced hundreds of releases including sound-works with White Denim, Timbaland's Beatclub, Jackbox Games, Hydra Flask, Invisible Architecture, and Sky Window. I've also mixed and mastered some 50+ albums one of which recently was awarded a Golden Melody Award in 2022 for Best Producer of an Instrumental Album.

I love to traverse any and all styles! Arrangers/Composers: yep, same goes for scores and charts.

Since 2022, Matt has been a recording and touring member of White Denim, a Los Angeles based outfit which is due to release their next recordings on Bella Union (UK) in the near future.

In 2022, Matt took home a Golden Melody Award for Best Producer of an Instrumental Album for his work on Between Now and Never by Invisible Architecture. The album received four nominations in total for Best Album (Instrumental), Best Recording (Instrumental), Best Producer, and Best Composition (for, “Pulse”, written by Jordan Gheen). Between Now and Never, to which Matt wrote the title track, is a collage-like album of sonic worlds occupied by improvisers co-produced with collaborators Alan Kwan (Hong Kong) and Jordan Gheen (Sky Window/USA).

Undergraduate studies at The University of North Texas; One O'Clock Lab Band Alumni (c'mon big band and reading!). Co-leader of AMP Trio, a piano trio based out of NYC/Dallas. In 2017, the trio featuring the amazing Tahira Clayton won 1st place in the international jazz competition hosted by the Washington D.C. Jazz Festival, DC Jazz Prix.

Some touring/recording credits include: Christopher Cross, Fantasticboom, Bob Belden, The Night Above Us, and King's Return.
