Our song "Love Is An Amazing Thing" was selected as a Top 25 finalist in the Music City Songwriting Competition! Written by jellybean and matto - /


Still working on that hot first release.


Feeling a bit camera shy


Matto starting writing songs when the lyrics began pouring into his head in 1993 and he hasn't been able to stop for over 20 years.  Matto joined NSAI in 1998 to learn more about songwriting, developing himself through their professional critiques.  In 2007, Matto moved his wife and son from Cincinnati to Nashville and quickly joined the GMA.  Then, they also quickly had two more kids now totaling 3 kids 10 and under!  

Matto continues to feed his passion of crafting songs with several other songwriters he's met at various songwriting events over the years.  He always enjoys learning more about the art of songwriting with a goal of being emotionally moving, encouraging and inspiring to others with songs to motivate everyone to live their lives to the fullest.  

He has attended NSAI's Spring Training for Songwriters 4 years (2010 - 2013), GMA's Immerse music training (2009 - 2012), the Write About Jesus songwriter conference (2010 - 2014) and GMA's Dove Awards (2008 - 2010).

Matto is cowriter of 4 indie #1 songs at, including the #1 song in the world "Love Is An Amazing Thing", which hit #1 on 7 different Top 10 charts.   That same song earned a Top 25 finalist spot in the Music City Songwriting Competition in 2014.

Designer and leader of the Creative Inspiration Songwriting Workshop, Matto loves teaching others how to fuel the passion of songwriting in their everyday lives.

Enjoying the journey, Matto just finished writing the first draft of his first novel- a fictional comedy due out September 30, 2015.
