The songs on the Cold EP showcase all the facets of Matt’s music - his songwriting, his vocals and his melodic pop sensibilities. Welcome to the World of Matt Simons”.
A story of humble beginnings, Simons grew up in Palo Alto, California as the grandson of two opera singers. He spent much of his early life studying jazz and classical music, playing the piano before switching to clarinet & guitar before crafting his own, melodic pop identity. It wasn’t long before he took steps to self-promote his releases online. To his surprise, his appealing pop sensibilities picked up an audience in The Netherlands, where his career started to really take off. A sync on a Dutch TV show and a string of tour dates, meant he had the perfect foundation to build a career overseas. Deepend’s remix of “Catch & Release” bubbled up organically and ended up to as one off 2016’s biggest hits, reaching Gold and Platinum status in a dozen territories and the top of the European Airplay chart. 2018’s ‘We Can Do Better’ and `Open Up’ (2019) following close behind, with success spreading even further.
