I’ll simply start by saying Hi!
My name is Matteson Gregory and I am a singer-songwriter from Missouri. For as long as I remember, music has always been a part of my life. Growing up my dad was always in bands so my childhood was surrounded by many instruments and various genres of music. When I was twelve, I learned to play the guitar which eventually led to me writing songs. Through my teen years I continued writing songs and figuring out my writing style. It wasn’t until my senior year of high school that I realized music was what I wanted to do with my life. Since then, I’ve been playing out, recording, and continuing to better my songwriting craft.
As far as what music to expect from me, it’s hard to be specific. I have been inspired by so many artists from so many genres. I guess the main thing that inspires me when I create music is the story behind it. Artists who I have been inspired by have inspired me because I was able to relate to their songs.
I know everyone out there says that they want to make a difference with their music and that should always be the case. After all, music is a way to say feelings that are often hard to say. What I want the most is for people to relate to my music. Most of my inspiration comes from events in my life. From heartbreaks, to love stories, to how I’ve overcome obstacles. What I’ve realized over the past years of my life is that everyone goes through the same things in life no matter how different they are from each other. (John Hughes well informed us of that in The Breakfast Club).
Besides music, my other loves in life are hanging out with family and friends, coffee, and my dog Joey.
With all that being said, I hope you guys enjoy my music and I hope you all can relate in one way or another.
