J. Matthews isn't your typical pop artist. To him, genre's have always been more of an experiment than a definitive style. Some genres capture certain emotions better than others, or reflect certain stories that other genres tend to avoid. Any story worth telling has its phases, its unique chapters, its unexpected twists, and J. Matts' music captures this element through an unexpected, yet cohesive, rhapsody. Two songs that sound completely different are somehow still connected. The reason for this? J. Matts' staple: his lyrics. J. is a writer first and foremost. Day after day he'd write songs, poems, and even stories, on the quiet, dead end street he grew up on. Storytelling is at the heart of who he is as an artist. When listening to J. Matthews, you'll feel deep, personal notes to his voice, wrapped around a melody to match, connecting stories that transcend linear genre.
