In addition to his successful recording career, in 2005 Matt released his autobiography “More than you Know”, achieving best-seller status in the coveted London Sunday Times. He has gone on to focus on songwriting, including writing the theme for the smash FOX program “So You Think You Can Dance” and the hit song “Change Me” for Keri Hilson and Akon, which is featured on Hilson’s chart-topping album “In a Perfect World”.
Matt’s song ”Lovely Las Vegas” is currently being used by NASCAR to support the 2011 campaign.
