Note: when Mattie was in high school, we were able to combine Mattie’s soloing with this fun track that we had produced previously…and as a result, connect Mattie’s growing artistry with Matt, along with these other fine musicians.
Mattie was able to perform live with Matt on a couple of occasions as a young musician. These musical memories join with so many others as we reflect upon the life Matt Michaels. Please click here to read more about Matt.
