Matthew is a talented multi-instrumentalist and is available for a variety for music performances and events.
His primary instruments of choice include acoustic guitar, piano, voice, percussion, world instruments and live looping electronics.
He has performed on stages all over Southeast Georgia, namely Savannah, Northeast Ohio, New Mexico, at music festivals in Tennessee, as well as performances internationally in Dublin, Ireland; Paris, France; London, England; Visoko, Bosnia and the Valencia region of Spain.
Matthew’s favorite instrument to express himself is the acoustic guitar. With over 20 years of dedicated practice and songwriting, he has found his favorite technique is fingerpicking arpeggiations, with recent explorations into open tunings.
He currently owns a Takemine acoustic/electric (his first guitar and gift from his father) tuned in standard tuning and several 3/4 sized Ibanez mahogany acoustic guitars tuned to open E tuning.
Great examples of his acoustic guitar work can be found on his most recent album released in 2020, Victory and in his many youtube videos which can be enjoyed below:
