Matthew Price was born in the small town of Silverton, Oregon in 1977. His father, Dale Price was the director of Canyonview Camp, a Christian youth camp outside Silverton. As a boy, Matthew listened as his dad played folk and gospel songs around the campfire beneath a starry sky. It was there that Matthew witnessed the natural, musical, and spiritual worlds blending together in perfect harmony.
It was only natural, that at age 16 Matthew would learn to play these same campfire songs using his dad’s guitar. He learned the magic of a song that could tell a story and take listeners to unique and memorable places. Now, years later, Matthew is the one crafting the songs that take his listeners on these journeys. His debut album,” Stranded”, produced by Rob Stroup of 8 Ball Studio in Portland, was released online at www.cdbaby.com in December, 2009, and quickly became one of the top selling Oregon albums. With a word or a phrase, Matthew can take you to a field beneath the constellations, or to a country road riding on your bicycle.
He will remind you of the people you love and the dreams you have. This is your music; real music for real people. Matthew Price’s music is a part of him and as you listen, you will get to know him. In fact, as you listen, you will probably even get to know yourself a little better.
