About Matt Walden

In the artist’s words: Describe one of your earliest musical memories in detail. When I was 5 my mom forced me and my little brother to start taking piano lessons. I hated every second of it, but endured the pain for 10 years. (I didn't really have a choice..) Yet - it was one of the best things to happen to me. Thanks mom. What are your top 3 all-time favorite albums on Apple Music, and why? Why did you choose these three albums in particular? Gregory Alan Isakov, Gregory Alan Isakov with the Colorado Symphony Jack Johnson, In Between Dreams twenty one pilots, Vessel When I think of these records, while they aren't genre related - they each impacted me and inspired me to continue creating and be vulnerable in my work. Plus they solidify these moments in my life that I am taken back to when I put them on. Find a song of yours on Apple Music that you love and tell us what makes it special. Tell us why you chose this song. “Yellow Rose” I never thought this song would be one that would get some attention. Started off as a poem about having to choose between my dreams or a person in my life. But, it was 6 and a half minutes long. I didn't think anyone would listen. Blown away. What’s one of the most memorable moments in your career so far? In 2019 I played a bunch of house shows up the East Coast of the USA traveling in my van with a good friend and no touring knowledge. It was absolutely incredible and we met so many wonderful families who took us in as their own! Is there anything left on your bucket list as an artist or band? I would love to tour globally. Ready to just get around the world and play these songs and meet some new faces.
