Biography

Matt Palmer is a Los Angeles-based R&B/Pop singer, songwriter, and producer. After graduating from NYU’s selective Clive Davis Institute of Recorded Music, Matt’s soaring melodies and heartfelt lyrics led to collaborations with some of music’s most exciting producers and songwriters including Oak Felder (Nicki Minaj, Chris Brown), Fraser T. Smith (ADELE, Britney Spears), and the Jackie Boyz (Madonna, Justin Bieber). After several years of writing songs for artists like Big Time Rush and Leon Thomas, Matt is preparing to release a brand new, 7-song EP entitled Stranger Than Fiction.

While Matt Palmer has released two full-length albums via Japanese R&B label Manhattan Recordings, Stranger Than Fiction is Matt’s first release an independent artist and an openly gay musician. The first single, the urban-pop track “Teardrops” produced by Drew Scotty (Fantasia, Dawn Richard), samples Taylor Swift’s first single “Teardrops on My Guitar”, and puts an adult spin on the teenage ode to unrequited love. In the music video, Matt is shown pining for the boy next door, and letting no barrier keep them apart.

The rest of Stranger Than Fiction finds an artist coming into his own by exploring genres and lyrical themes only hinted at in his previous work. From the radio-ready pop soul of “Break-Up” to the glittering EDM of “Whatever It Takes” to the broken down, piano and vocal only “Free”, Stranger Than Fiction represents an artist discovering his voice without boundaries for the first time.
