The amazing fact is that he started writing music at the age of 9. The singer states that the music of Elvis Costello and Bruce Springsteen served as a great source of inspiration for him and motivated him to pursue a career as a punk rock singer.

In the beginning of his career, Matthew worked in collaboration with Hardwell, Zedd, Tiësto as well as a number of other well-known figures in the industry of music.
