Matt Martin, a young tech entrepreneur raised on a Canadian dairy farm, has turned his sights toward his true passion - country music. In early '22, after a couple of years softly releasing his music, Matt packed up and headed to Nashville to pursue his dream. His new single released on February 11 unveils a fresh sound that is deeply inspired by his roots, while lyrically resonating with the sheer honesty of who he is today. With release day playlist adds to Spotify's "Live Country" and "New Music Nashville", all signs are pointing to bigger things just around the corner for Matt's music.
Matt's debut EP, "Where the Flowers Bloom", was released in late 2020 with multiple tracks garnering noteworthy attention across Canada. Of the 6 songs, his single "Passenger Seat" gained traction at Canadian Country Radio and SiriusXM. It broke streaming records after being added to Apple Music's top editorial playlists such as "New in Country" and "Canada's Country", along with Spotify Canada's "Live Country" and "Best Country Songs of 2021".
In the fall of '20, "Wouldn't Be the First Time" was added to Amazon Music's "Breakthrough Country" playlist and debuted at spot #2.
In January 2021, "I Wanna Be There" was also released to Canadian Country radio. It broke radio records for Matt reaching #8 in Canada on the Yangaroo Weekly charts for most radio station CanCon Downloads and #5 on the Most Active Indies chart.
