For Singer/Songwriter, Matt Price, there is nothing that makes him more alive than making music. Songs have been stirring in his heart since before he can remember. “There is a video tape of me at age six dancing like a wild man and singing at the top of my lungs to Billy Joel’s ‘The River of Dreams’. That is one of the earliest musical memories that has stuck with me through the years,” said Matt.
In 2003, he experienced a profound moment that changed the course of his life. “When I was a sophomore in high school, I had an experience with God that was a pivotal, life changing moment for me. Michael W. Smith had released a Worship DVD of a live concert in Alberta, Canada, and I will never forget the night that I watched it. I was blown away at the presence of God in that place and Michael’s ability to let it flow through him; it was so powerful that people were literally weeping and worshipping like I had never seen before. I was so moved and touched, and I knew from that moment on that I wanted to make music that would impact others deeply. I knew that God was calling me to ministry,” said Matt.
Over the past year, he has worked on fine tuning his writing skills, working with esteemed CCM veteran Cindy Wilt Colville (Jason Ingram, Building 429, Matthew West). He has also had the opportunity to play keys for artists such as Newsong and Francesca Battistelli. In April, he released his latest single “Let Your Life Flow”, and will be featured on New Release Tuesday’s new artist watch in June.
