15 years of experience as a writer/composer/vocalist/instrumentalist Cut my teeth as the frontman/primary writer for an alternative rock group in my first 7 years of working in this industry, followed by 5 years of composing and performing solo with just an acoustic guitar. I've continued to write and collaborate with others because I really enjoy the flow of creative energy that even strangers can manifest when brought together by music. I'm open to writing in all genres of music but my typical writing style is pop at its core influenced by blues, jazz, indie and alternative rock. www.soundcloud.com/matt-counts
