Matt started singing and performing when he was quite young. As a teenager, he joined a boy band called Townsend in San Francisco Bay Area. He had to give a few trials, after which Townsend selected him as a member. The group sang hip-pop style music. Matt’s good looks and vocal qualities matched the expectations of the group. He also brought with him a little bit of experience in music, which helped the group significantly. In addition, he was an excellent lyricist and pianist, which the band was looking for. After he joined the band, Matt was chosen to be one of the 25 finalists for the ‘Making the Band’ show, which was a Lou Pearlman production, telecast on ABC television.
