having been afraid from picking a guitar up for over 18 years, Matt finally decided to take the plunge and buy one. After a few years of practicing and writing, Matt produced his first album 'come into my world', where his songwriting is portrayed through electronic based grooves. Wanting a name for this project, he set out to find the most apt band name. Listening to the cd, over and over, it all became clear... ortoPilot. The music taking control. A few years passed while Matt locked himself away with his new toy / investment, a trusty Taylor 814ce.
Getting massively into acoustic music, he found the music of John Mayer. Practicing his riffs based on various acoustic influences, Matt soon developed his own way to get his point across. In June 2006, Matt discovered a site called YouTube. Not thinking anything of it, he uploaded a couple of acoustic cover videos just for fun. Two turned into three and the YouTube addiction began... Using just his trusty computer, his beloved Taylor acoustic guitar, the good old (never seems to die, but got lots of injuries) keyboard, his funky looking bass and of course his majestic vocal chords, he manages to compile weird and wonderfully unique versions of his own music and others to suit to this very day. http://myspace.com/ortopilotmusic Read more on Last.fm.
