Performing songwriter Matthew Griswold, made the transition rom US Army Soldier to Professional Songwriter/Musician in 2008 and has been going full force ever since. After a short stint in Nashville and quickly securing a publishing deal with Universal Music, Matthew headed home to Minnesota and returned "for good" to his native land while he began to write and record songs for Film and TV projects. Though every songwriter dreams of a chance that they will one day sign to a major publishing deal and have millions of people hear their songs around he world, Matthew's true passion was being the "personal messenger". So, he began to dedicate the time between writing songs to going ou and performing for people in a rapidly growing market of restaurants, brewpubs and taprooms (Imminent brewing!) around the northern midwest. He found a natural comfort in providing these more casual crowds with a well crafted soundscape to pair with their evening muses. As an artist who never desired "fame'', this was a much better fit for him over the spotlight heat of nightclubs.
Matthew's performance is one you won't want to miss.
