With the vast community of international users on this site I thought we should have a thread to discuss (and banter) the World Cup, the greatest sporting event in the world! For Americans on this…Continue

About Me:
Hi, I'm Matt.
I love music and think it's an amazing gift God has given us so we can use it to glorify Him! I play lead guitar in our church worship band. It usually rocks when I play because that's how I play because God rocks! I also help coordinate the worship team, arrange songs and fill in on bass, keys and BVs when needed. I head up the PA team too.

I like to write songs when I get the time (probably procrastinate on this too much though). They're usually fairly rocky worship or God related tunes.

I run a recording studio and teach music tech at a local secondary school which is a media arts college.

When I'm not doing anything musical I'm usually supporting the BEST football club in the world, Bradford City, and socialising or doing other church stuff.
Favorite Music:
Queen, Dream Theater, Van Halen, Muse, U2, The Depeche Mode, Michael Jackson, Megadeth, Steve Vai, Marty Friedman, Transatlantic, Deep Purple, Incubus, Kasabian, Iona, The Killers, Queensrhyche, Pink Floyd, Rush, Primus, Sting, Mutemath, Madonna - Yes, these are more secular bands which does include some cheesy rock and metal! These do it musically for me more than most worship bands, and influence how my music sounds when I play guitar or write songs.

For Worship, I tend to listen to Tim Hughes, Matt Redman, Brian Doerkson, Lex Buckley, Soul Survivor, Hillsong (when they use more than the same usual 4 chords), Michael W Smith, The Gathering Band, Lakewood, Delirious... I have a very open and varied taste and like most styles except RnB and boy bands.
Favorite Bible Verses / Passages:
Psalm 73.25-26: "Who have I in heaven but you? And I desire no one on earth as much as you! My health fails, my spirits droop, yet God remains! He is the strength of my heart; he is mine forever!"

Hey Matt, yeah thanx for taking the time to comment.
I lived most of my life in Canada. Very conservative, but calypso, reggae and music in general can reach anyone, anywhere, anytime. We have played and sang on the Six Nations Reserve, in Traditional Churches and everything in between. It just takes a willingness to try something something new:)

Hi Matt!
Thank you so much for your feedback on my song! It really blessed and encouraged me. Thanks for the advice as well--really appreciate it. Am hoping to do a more "real" recording of it at my church, so will take your advice into account! Thanks again. I'm just going to give your song a listen. Be blessed and have a great week! thanks again :)
