Matt has been drumming since the age of 15 and has been blessed to have played with many musicians who have inspired him since. Starting with his hard rock days with Caged Smile back in the late 80s opening up for the likes of Joined Forces and Zebra, to his 15 year career with alternative band Under the Rose, Matt has performed live countless times and recorded five albums worth of original music. After a 10 year hiatus, Matt re-surfaced to re-invent himself with an Americana/Country band, Shotgun Siren, being further inspired by extremely talented bandmates. Fast forward to current day and the musical gods yet again sent good fortune his way to connect with the members of RELIC! To Matt, it’s all about the euphoric feel of playing with musicians who take you to another place – his brothers in RELIC do just that!
