He attended California State University, Chico in Chico, California where he majored in literature and played soccer until his junior year. It was also at this time when Mat picked up a guitar for the first time. Using a roommate’s guitar, he tried covering other songs. Realizing he wasn’t too good at it, he began writing his own.
Kearney has stated that his legal name is Mathew due to a nurse’s error on his birth certificate. He discovered the error while in the 8th grade when he noticed how his mom corrected the error with red ink, never legally correcting it. Since then, he embraced the one T in his legal name.
