Exclusive Interview with Matthew Perrie, Rapper and Producer Making Waves

It’s an honor to speak with you today. Why don’t you give us some details about you and your story. How did you get to where you are today?

It’s my honor to be interviewed. My name is Matthew and I am a singer, songwriting, producer from Brisbane. My real name is Matthew Perrie. I started singing in third grade. I use to sing in chorus. As I got older I started producing music for me and my friends and posting singing and rapping videos online. I spent money on recording equipment at fourteen and practiced singing and making music. I would produce songs for me and my friends. Now I use the industry-standard Pro Tools but we made those tracks on a free program Audacity sound good. We worked with what we had. As I got older I posted singing videos on Facebook and Vine and went viral online a few times through out high school for singing. When I got to college I started recording music more seriously and getting booked for shows and performing live under my performing name Matthew Perrie. I learned more about mixing and about the music business in general. I am an independent artist Signed to an Independent label so it’s challenging at times however it’s fun and rewarding because you see your fans grow with you over time. I am thankful for the good and the bad throughout my journey.

I’m sure your success has not come easily. What challenges have you had to overcome along the way?

Along the way there have been multiple things that have set me back however I would not change anything because through each of these barriers I gained knowledge. Knowledge is important and a lot of people take that for granted. I’m not talking about school knowledge but life knowledge. Life will definitely teach you some lessons college did not teach me! I’m not perfect but I try to learn from my mistakes and the mistakes of others. There have been times when I had to get to my school and didn’t have the money to get there. Sometimes in life, things get rough, but you can always make something positive out of it. It’s a blessing to see progress as time went by. I started working out, working in my voice, and really trying to focus more on myself. When I did this more things started to fall into place for me. Consistently working hard will pay off. It’s a grind but it’s worth it. I have been mentioned by a few hip hop magazines and by radio hosts on different stations such as power 106 in LA. I remember when no one listens to my music. I have been getting emails from different independent labels as well trying to get me to leave my label and sign. I’m starting to see progress but I am going to go harder and try to make better music.

Let’s talk about the work you do. What do you specialize in and why should someone work with you over the competition?

I make music. I sing, rap, and produce music. It’s cool to get paid for music and I’m thankful for that but I have a love for it. Music has helped me get through a lot of things. When I make music I try to be creative and always be myself. I try to have fun and let it flow genuinely. I feel like that’s an important part of my creative process. I want people to feel some type of emotion when they hear my music.

What’s your best piece of advice for readers who desire to find success in their life?

My best advice would be to step out of your comfort zone and be open to trying new things. Don’t wait for things to be right or perfect to get started with something, start with it now. More advice I have is to save. Don’t spend all your money. Invest in yourself. Don’t be around people who don’t treat you right. Don’t let people tell you what you can’t accomplish. You can do anything you set your mind on. Don’t try to be perfect with everything, nothing is perfect, but always give your all! Fall in love with your passion and learn more about it. Strive to be the best you can be at your talent. Never give up and stay focused. It’s okay to get discouraged sometimes we all human but when you catch yourself doing that, just get back to what your working towards. Don’t procrastinate.

Speaking of success, what does the word mean to you?

Success to me is being happy and financially secure. You want to make sure your healthy and taking care of yourself. You want to make sure you are happy in life and at peace with yourself. Always have confidence and believe in yourself. Success is not just massive amounts of money. Some people have that and are not happy. You have one life; live.
