With strong roots in the LGBTQ+ community, Mathew V has never shied away from expressing himself in his music. Already an emerging artist to keep an eye on, he has quite the impressive resume - writing for acts such as Dan Mangan, DiRTY RADiO and opening for the likes of Betty Who, Ria Mae, Hanson, Daya, MAGIC! and more.

After ten years of classical operatic vocal training, Mathew V moved to London, England at the age of 17 to teach himself how to write pop music. Now only at 22, he has embraced success since returning home to Vancouver. Mathew penned a deal with 604 records and his debut single “Tell Me Smooth” went top 40 on Canadian Radio (Hot AC/AC) for 18 weeks, peaking at #18.

His new single "Catching Feelings" is an electro-pop bop accompanied by his hauntingly sultry vocals:

"Channelling nostalgia, fun, and playful energy, I wanted my new single – “Catching Feelings” – to be a song people can listen to when they are thinking of their high school crush! This year, I’m going big or going home – and I certainly have no intention on going home! I really f*cking love what I do, and I just want to spread that and share that with as many people as possible. I’m ready to get to work. I knew I wanted something fun, cheeky and playful with this track. I had wanted to work with Ryan Stewart (Multi Platinum, Juno Award Winning Producer/Songwriter) for ages, and this was the first song we did together. It really became our love-child, and now we’re proud parents releasing it to the world... what a modern family -- love that for us! I’ll be playing a lot more shows this year, releasing a bunch of new music, pushing my boundaries, being honest, getting this bread, and being myself. I hope you’ll follow along!"
