We had the good fortune of connecting with Matthew Marino and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Matthew, how has your background shaped the person you are today?
I was born in NYC and moved to FL when I was 11, I always had a deep love for music and started messing around with it around the age of 8 and kept going until I was in middle / high school and always played in different bands. When I started learning more about songwriters & producers I moved right out to LA and got to work.

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
I mostly do lyrics in sessions, Its my favorite part of the songwriting process. I just love starting songs and bringing ideas to life.
