After 10 years of classical operatic vocal training, Mathew V moved to London, England at the age of 17 to teach himself how to write pop music. Now only 22, Mathew has accomplished a lot since returning home to Vancouver. After penning a deal with 604 Records, his debut single, “Tell Me Smooth,” went top 40 on Canadian Radio (Hot AC/AC) for 18 weeks, peaking at #18.
New album, Two Faced, has been a few years in the making. Mathew is not an artist that lives in one space – some days he wants to make top 40 pop music, some days he wants to make a really intimate acoustic song. Some people would say that isn’t allowed, but Mathew wanted to make the ideal album for this point in his life. An album for all of his moods, all of his highs and lows. Two Faced shows both sides of that spectrum really well – both of his faces, so to speak.
