Written by Matthews and Darren Ivory, “Feelin’ Right” adopts a new style and sound. “I heard the world of pop/R&B calling, and now it’s time that I answer,” he explains. His smooth vocals float above the track as he opens up to a lover. The gentle beat and soft backing vocals add depth and intimacy to the song. “I wanna show my audience something a little bit deeper…my sexual side that captivates my sensuality.”
Born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Matthews first felt the call to music as a child watching Whitney Houston’s memorable Grammy Awards performance. Taking a page out of Houston’s inspirational tone and presence, he developed a sound of his own and found peace in the world of music. The singer-songwriter believes he can motivate and connect with disenfranchised LGBTQ listeners in particular through his story and poignant lyrics. “I want to really help people realize that it does get better. You as a person have the power to change your life, to choose to be happy, and to make the right choice on what path to lead.” Matthews is an advocate for suicide prevention and anti-bullying by supporting The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention and several LGBTQ+ organizations and spreading positivity and fortitude through his music and lyrics.
In between late nights in the studio and 3am writing sessions, he travels the world, connecting with people and cultures from all across the globe. As for his future, Matthews realizes this is only the beginning, as he continues to grow through hard work and dedication. Above all, he wants fans to believe the same, and looks forward to connecting with them through his music.
With his previous releases, Matthews secured the attention of Instinct Magazine, Pop Dust, CelebMix, AXS, and more. Audio Fuzz credits him with a “voice and presence that makes love seem so simple, even when we know it is not.”
