Ruth K. Dear Matthew, I just wanted to take a moment to tell you how wonderful I think your music is. You are very gifted, very talented and one can see how passionate you allow yourself to get as you play. Thank you for sharing that with the world. What I saw in your body language along with the ease in which you speak volumes with the keys is a very rare combination, you actually get it. I’ll be looking for your music and from a prude such as myself, that speaks volumes! I wish you all the best. Very truly yours, Ruth K.
Carol S. I heard your music today as I was listening to The Weather Channel. We are in the middle of a storm, so I was tuned in for hours and got to really hear the music. It was quite easy to find you via an Internet search for " piano music weather channel". I was very happy to see your music was available for purchase. Thank you so much for shipping them so quickly. I know they will provide many hours of enjoyment.
Deedee B. Since I'm an avid watcher of The Weather Channel, I always loved listening to "the piano music" played during "On the Eights". The other day, I decided to research who played that beautiful music. Bingo! I'm thrilled to know who it is and was really surprised at all your music. I listened to several songs on YouTube, and now, I'm a huge fan.
I'm really looking forward to receiving the CD's. It'll be wonderful listening to hours of your music instead of a couple of minutes from The Weather Channel. Your music is beautiful, passionate, and it transcends you into an incredible place. Love it!
Thank you Matt........keep doing what you're doing. You should be proud.
Gwyn C. "Clear Thoughts" Is so beautiful, It's from the album Escape From Reality. I can't stop playing it. It make you smile at the beauty of it. I'm lost for words. Thank you for your work, it's Godly. I'm in awe at your talent.
Zachary M. Hello Matthew! I'm a huge fan since I was able to track down that it was actually your music I fell in love with on TWC. I was wondering, since you said plans for your fourth album were coming together, if you planned on having "Haunted" on there as well. Or if it will continue to be available only through Amazon and iTunes.
Elaine W. Hi Matt, I found it!! I have been searching the web for the beautiful piece I heard on the Weather Channel last night. I will download "Chasing the Wind" right now - and I am sure even more! Thank you for this beautiful music!! By the way - the successful search was "Weather Channel Piano"
adpny beautiful music! like others, I was watching the Weather Channel (the hours leading up to Hurricane Sandy) and heard this incredible melody. Shazam didn't work, but I found your name on the playlist and eventually came to this link on youtube. thank you for sharing your gift!
Boredom333 They keep the weather channel on where I work and every time this song came on I would just be swept away by it... now that I have the whole song it's definitely going in my piano collection!
BeautifulVixen101 OMGOSH I have been searching the web all day to find the piano solo played on the weather channel! Finally found it! It is so incredibly beautiful! I can't get enough of your music. Thank you for sharing your talent.
David F. Wow-Wow-Wow. Like the other posters here I heard a stunningly beautiful piece of music on TWC and new right away I had to find the cat that was playing it. Fruitless the 1st day I tried to find it then heard it again and was more determined then ever. Gotcha! Chasing The Wind is pure musical perfection. Just bought the CD on eBay and will be back to buy more copies for gifts. Good things are headed your way.
John Amazing writing and playing! Thank God for Google, or I would have forever had your music in my head with no way to find it except to record hours and hours of Local On the 8's. Do you ever plan to come out with sheet music for any of your pieces? Going to get all three of your albums on iTunes and cross my fingers.
Kim P. Hi Matthew! I just had to write and tell you how much I enjoy your music!! I heard it on The Weather Channel (local on the 8's) and finally decided it was time to hunt down the song! Chasing The Wind is just simply wonderful. It captures so much emotion. You are truly talented!! Thanks to "Bridget" for tracking it down and posting it on Weather Channel's FB page. I went to your website and randomly clicked on a song...Fluidity...and LOVED it too! I can't wait to purchase your music.
trklaus I hope you don't get tired of people saying your music is magic...because your music is magic! The Weather Channel's playing of "Chasing the Wind" made me crazy because they never play it through and after three days of searching, I found you on YouTube. As I listened to the other titles, I knew I was on the right track because there is just something about your music that tugs at the elemental in my spirit. Thank you so very much!
video57crazy I don't usually leave comments...BUT..this hauntingly beautiful piece has been driving me to find out who it is.....and I am SO happy to have found it. Yours is a truly magnificent and blessed talent Matthew. You have touched my soul, and I'm sure the souls of many who hear your melodies. Please, keep going, and keep creating. Thank you so much for sharing this wondrous gift you have at reaching people with your music. Can't wait to receive this and collect more. Profound Thanks !
mgzegz1 Who knew the weather channel had such amazing music? lol I had to come find this one.. thank god for the internet.. I have been humming it in my head all day. It would have drove me nuts not knowing.
Corrinn and Emma M. My 11 year old daughter wanted me to send you a quick email. She has been whistling "Chasing the Wind" for days. We both love the song! She is a figure skater and she asked me to tell you that she wants to skate to your song for her next competition. (She is currently skating to Enya.) She leaves the weather channel on so she can hear it! I purchased a few other songs for my iPod as well. I can't wait to complete my albums. Good luck, and much success!
Melodious Sonnet1 I'm a grandma,who along with grandpa are avid watchers of the weather channel .when I heard this song it just reached out and grabbed me,and I found myself listening for it..thinking who plays so beautifully,and what was the melodys name,so I went looking on the weather channel, and on u-tube clicking on every song today till I found it. It is so rivetingly beautiful,striking chord in you heart like a thunderous storm, , like being caught up in a swirling mass of autumn leaves..Soooo enjoying.
thereshegoes03 Incredible. I've got an upcoming project for my art class which is an abstract piece based off of an instrumental song. I've been searching for the perfect song for weeks, and when I heard this on the Weather Channel, I knew it was the one :) I'm going to buy it on Amazon.
megalodonbite I don't comment very much but I thought I would on this one. I'm more of a metalhead myself, play guitar etc. However, I occasionally love to stray away from my usual distortion and loud leads to listen to some good piano...the great's such as George Winston. Dude, I know good original music when I hear it...and THIS is GOOD. The more I listen, the more I love it. I'll definitely be keeping a close ear on your stuff from now on and keep up the great work!
Pianoprincess44 I heard this song on the weather channel and ever since, I have been desperate to figure out what it is so I can learn it on piano. And now I have! It is absolutely mesmerizingly beautiful! Thanks soooo much!!!
yipon5 My husband often looks at the weather before bed and usually I pay no attention, but last night I was captivated, not by the weather, but by your music. This morning I woke up to an e-mailed link to this clip. Apparently my husband searched and found you so I could wake up to your wonderful music. Thank you for starting my day off with happiness.
tinytine1356 I too found you through the weather channel and immediately fell in love with all the runs in finding freedom. I agree that you need to publish some sheet music because I would really really love it if i could actually play your beautiful, wonderful music. I have already bought both CDs and would absolutely not hesitate to buy a piano book! Keep up the amazing talent!!
Rebecca G. I heard your song Chasing the Wind yesterday in the Weather Channel and fell instantly in love with it. I've been playing piano since 2nd grade and would love to know what key it's played in or if you have sheet music. If so, I'm totally willing to buy! You're dynamics are amazing and truly touching. Thanks!
Anonymous I found you through The Weather Channel's Local on the 8s, and I am so glad I did. Profoundly moving music--definitely worth the research it took to find out the title of the song. I will be writing my yet to be published novel with this in mind.
Chuck Hey Matthew, Chuck from Detroit Mi. just wanna let u know your music is awesome!!! Do u have a bio? What state r/u from? Any plans to come to Mi. to perform? KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK, WOULD LOVE TO HEAR MORE!!! THANZ
Dorothy E. I absolutely love your piano music !!! I’ve searched until I found you. My favorite is Night Storm that heard on weather channel. I’ve played classical piano music since I was 5 yrs old. My mother was piano teacher. I am a reader, dont play by ear. Would appreciate it sooooo much if you would publish sheet music for piano for all like me. The beauty of your music brings tears to my eyes. There’s only two other pianists that have - Liberacie and a gospel pianist Dino. My mother took me to hear both in person when very young. I cried the whole concerts - such beauty. You have that gift. I’m now 50 yrs old and play for my grandchildren. Night Storm seemed to reach out and grab me like Beethoven’s Moonlight Sonata. Unforgetable !! Please please put it on paper for us !!!!!!!!!!!!! thanks soooo much, Dorothy Ebers ps - I will be buying your music cds too!!
Popsy K. Matt's music has a way of magically evoking memories of times and places...even before I knew the title of Walking on the Beach, hearing those notes made me think of walking on a beach. That's amazing! Fabulous job, Matt.
Beth E. Heard you on the Weather Channel and looked you up. I'm very excited to receive your "Natural Emotion" CD, which I ordered on eBay. Great sounds, Matthew! AWESOME tunes. Can't wait to buy the other CD. Thanks!!
Diana M. I am soooo happy... I got my CD in the mail today... listening to it now... I haven't been this relaxed all day.. Thank you Matt..... Everyone, I am telling you... he is awesome.. you have to get this CD !!!
Patricia R. 8:28 Sunday a.m. Just heard you on the WC. They sure gave you a lot of exposure! Perfect piece for a rainy morning. They even picked the perfect clip from the track to fit perfectly with the forecast & ending! So very coooooooool!!! So very incredible!
Diana M. Matthew...you are beyond amazing...your music is soooo relaxing... I would be proud to own your CD when it comes out..and my friend with your talent that is just a matter of time.. definitely spreading the word....
Karen N. Wow!!! I never miss a Jim Brickman concert in Frederick at the Weinberg or elsewhere. I can say without a doubt that if you were playing there, I would be there. Wonderful, uplifting piano. Hope to pick up a copy of your upcoming CD and more. Jim Brickman watch out! This guy is GOOD!
