Artist Biography

Born in Texas and raised in Mississippi, Matt Hines' music reflects his life and environment.  He is a new face in the industry, and his sound is anticipated to make some waves in the Country/Americana music scene.  Matt credits his influences to everything from Country (Zac Brown Band, David Allen Coe, Darius Ruckers, etc.), to RandB (Varvin Gaye, The Temptatioins, Teddy Pendergrass, etc.), and Rock (The Eagles, The Red Hot Chili Peppers, Queen, etc.) to Pop (Michael Jackson, Elton John, Hall and Oates, etc.).
Being the son of a preacher, Matt Hines grew up leading his church in his favorite old hymns.  This influence can be seen and heard throughout his songs, especially in "Base It on a Feelin'" where he sings about his family pew.  He is not afraid to tackle life's darker side, and deals with subjects such as alcoholism and temptatioin in "As the Crow Flies" (somewhat playfully) and death in "When You're Gone." Whatever he writes on, Matt Hines will always remain true to himself and his fans.
