New Episode Alert! Lyricist, teacher and musician, Matt Muse, stopped by our studio to enlighten our lives and it is safe to say, we’ve completely fallen in love with his sweet personality and his passion for music.
Matt grew up in a household full of music. His parents wanted him to stay busy by learning how to play the piano and singing in the choir. Matt croons for us as he acknowledges that not only did that push towards music keep him out of trouble, but it introduced him to his passion. He’s proud (and rightfully so) of how raw and genuine his raps are and follows it up with a perfect blend of confidence and cockiness that you can’t help but agree with. Although he is aware of the motivation that can be invoked by his lyrics and the work that he does with his poetry students, he doesn’t consider himself a motivational speaker. He is an artist- and a great one at that! And as if his credentials couldn’t get any better, we learn he is an alum of Donda’s House, the nonprofit created in honor of Kanye West’s mother that supports young, aspiring artists of Chicago.
Before we let him go, he dished about his next (secret) project, and spit a few bars from his favorite, unreleased song! We had a wonderful time getting to know him and his motivation. Now press play!
For more information on Matt, his music and how to keep up with his performance schedule, follow him on Instagram and stay in touch with us. You are not going to want to miss him.
