Biography

New York City-based singer/songwriter, Matt Palmer, intends to bring back a needed breath of honesty into the world of R&B. No bravado, no flash— just his own lyrics offered through heartfelt melodies and thoughtful songs. Matt’s music is the unmistakable sound of a songwriter sharing sincere emotion and a piece of himself.

“I’ve been singing since I was very young and songwriting came into the picture later. I love them both so much that I couldn’t ever give one up, fully”.

Matt grew up listening to ‘90s R&B radio, dominated at the time by icons like Babyface, Michael Jackson, and Mariah Carey. Performing in the local Atlanta choir while writing songs as early as age 14, it wasn’t long before his combined talents led him on the road to success. Matt’s efforts gained him admittance to the prestigious Clive Davis Department at NYU, where he further honed his skills as a songwriter and producer. Upon graduation, Matt entered a competition on SongwriterUniverse.com and won with his original piece, “I Wish.” Judge and seasoned music publisher, Dale Kawashima, was so taken by Matt’s music that he arranged for Matt to sign with HoriPro Entertainment Group in Los Angeles, CA as an official songwriter.

Signing with HoriPro marked the beginning of Matt’s professional career. Since then, he has found a wealth of opportunity in working with top-tier talent. His emotional melodies and versatile writing style led to co-writing songs for major label artists with producers OAK (Chris Brown, Nicki Minaj), Dave Tozer (John Legend, Jay-Z), and Brian West (Nelly Furtado, K’Naan).
