I specialize in R&B, pop, blues and rock guitar (both rhythm and lead). I love making guitar stacks and recording different textures of guitar. I provide guitar recordings that are ready to go, with very little mixing required. Looking forward to hearing from you!

I offer many kinds textures of guitar: electric, acoustic, nylon-string, baritone, lap steel, ukulele, high-strung electric and acoustic and bass.

After being in Nashville for almost 10 years, I've played with tons of artists while being here, including Morgan Myles, The War and Treaty, Wyn Starks, Amythyst Kiah and many others. I have over 15 years of experience playing music and it's taken me all around the U.S. and to Europe.

Gear list:
Neve 1073 DPX (Two-channel)
Empirical Labs Fatso (Stereo compressor)
Apollo Twin
Logic Pro X

Amp: Rivera Stage IV (Fender Deluxe Reverb)

Electric Guitar : '71 Gibson Les Paul Deluxe, Heritage 530 (335 style), Stratocaster, Sire P7 bass, Yamaha Pacifica Baritone, 1957 Fender Champion Lap Steel

Acoustics: Gibson J-45. Breedlove DSR Dreadnought, Cordoba Nylon string, Martin T1 Ukelule. Fender

For electric, I use a 70's Shure Unidyne III, Mesanovic Ribbon mic and on acoustic, I use two SM81's or a Warm 251.

  1. Review by Jabari K.

    Great work! Matt did exactly what I was looking for with no revisions needed and he completed the assignment much earlier than I expected it to be delivered.

Interview with Matt Laurence

  1. Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.

  2. A: I do a range of different styles: most people call me for R&B and pop that need some pretty chords or a solid driving rhythm, but I grew up playing rock and rock leads as well

  3. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  4. A: My guitar cab stays mic'd up all the time so I'm ready to go. I mic it with a Mesanovic Model 2 Ribbon mic and a 70's Shure Unidyne III. It goes from there into my Neve 1073's, into an UBK Fatso comp and a modded Art Pro VLA tube compressor, then into my Apollo. I have all my guitars right next to me at the ready for when inspiration hits

  5. Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?

  6. A: I've been influenced by all the notable, big guitar players over the years (B.B. King, Hendrix, etc.) but as I've gotten older, I grown a massive appreciation for session guys like Paul Jackson Jr., David T. Walker, Tom Bukovac, Steve Lukather, Louis Johnson, Anthony Jackson and many others - so they're mostly who I look up to nowadays.

On My Mind
