Born and raised in bucolic small-town Massachusetts, Matthew crafts catchy, eclectic, and thoughtful songs that capture and convey his perspective on life.  Drawing heavily from his musical upbringing, Matthew's music takes inspiration from 60s classics (Brian Wilson, Burt Bacharach, The Beatles, Motown) as well as modern artists (Belle & Sebastian, Jens Lekman, Billie The Vision & The Dancers, Joanna Newsom).
