Matt Santry wants you to know that someone’s been there too. His aim as a singer songwriter is to write songs that welcome you into an experience he calls “heart driven pop”.

But Matt didn’t always write songs. He began his professional career as a social worker. While working with children with Autism, he started using music in an intuitive way. “Whether we’d bang on a drum or sing a song or I would just play the guitar, music was part of every day.”

Then one moment changed the way Matt looked at music. His client, who rarely used words to communicate, sang an entire Christmas song, line for line, by himself. In awe of this interaction, Matt was inspired to begin writing his own songs.

10 years later, Matt continues to search for that human connection through his own music. His journey has taken him across the country performing at over 100 colleges, on festivals bills with acts like The Lumineers, Counting Crows and sharing stages with Delta Rae, Brett Young, Tony Lucca to name a few.

Matt is set to release his 5th album in early 2018. Produced by Alex Wong, (Delta Rae, Ari Hest, Vienna Teng) this collection of songs was recorded entirely in Wong’s Nashville Studio “Angel House South”.

A line from the chorus of one of Matt’s newest songs sums up his mission as a songwriter...

“When your troubles keep you reaching, but you don’t know what you need
Let me be, let me be, let me be your change of scene”

"I always like it when I get to mix a song that I WOULD GO BUY if I heard it on the radio..."
Jeff Juliano, Mix Engineer (John Mayer, Dave Matthews, Train)

"I REALLY dig everything he does! He's got a GREAT is great...songwriting is great"
Jaxon, DJ, WMMR (93.3FM) Phila, PA

“Matt Santry is the kind of artist we always LOVED at The Point. He knew how to take advantage of every show and use it to further his career, and ALWAYS DELIVERED a crowd.”
