- Whether it's sugary pop or beatdown hardcore, Matthew has devoted his time crafting the ultimate playlist and talking about the really good stuff along the way. When he’s not moshing, you can catch Matthew taking pictures at whatever show will let him in with a camera. Outside of music, he will be spending his time drinking coffee, watching The Office or Trailer Park Boys and admiring the Toronto Maple Leafs.
