Welcome to BuzzMusic Matthew Thomas! How was your upbringing and what initially inspired you to pursue music?
My upbringing was pretty great I was an only child and I had amazing parents that always wanted the best for me what inspired me to pursue music was just constantly singing everywhere I was and I realized I wanted to get better! And that fight just kept getting larger and larger for music
What was the message behind the lyricism in “Miles Apart”?
The message behind miles apart was that when you love someone so much whether they are right next to you or hours away that love never goes away because that person is the same no matter what I want people to know that if you want someone so much go for them don't let them get away and miss your shot at love
What was the most challenging aspect of creating your single “In The Moment” and how did you overcome the obstacles?
Well, a lot of people don't know this song was about my grandma passing away and it was very hard because she was my best friend my biggest supporter and she just always wanted me to succeed so now that she is gone I go every day with the mindset that this is for her I'm living my dream for both of us!
How would you describe your songwriting approach to your song “Mom And Dad”?
Well, I wrote this song as a thank you to my parents for the sacrifices they have made for me my whole life and in my music career and these last few years that haven't been easy I'm 20 years old trying to still understand life and it's been hard at times with anxiety and depression and they have been my rock through all of it so I'm forever grateful for them this song was the least I could do for them!
What was the most monumental single of your career this year and why?
I would say miles apart because it was the song that got me recognized and my first single ever which is so shocking to me sometimes I don't feel like I deserve to do this but I'm so blessed I get to do this for a living and it's never a job for me I just have fun making music and writing songs it's a dream for me!
