Matt began his musical journey on the piano at 5 years old and has never stopped since.  Matt began studying music fiercefully in 2013 on the violin and began taking lessons and practicing became a daily ritual. Violin has carried him into the music world and exposed him to all different types of music. Inspired by legendary artists such as Ella Fitzgerald and Stevie Wonder, but also by more modern artists such as Jazmine Sullivan, Finneas and Michael Buble.
