I am a solo artist who writes fully orchestrated Rock/Progressive music. I love to write music and I am constantly looking for new ways to show my talent to the world. I sometimes play with a band backing me up, and we love to perform together. I wish to widen my fan base and find more listeners.

Biography

Jake MM (Thats me) is a Progressive Rock Artist In search of exposure. I have been writing music for almost 5 years now and I've been playing shows for almost 3 years. I've been playing music since I was 5 (I'm 17 now) and I love to play in front of an audience. I have many friends who enjoy my music, some of which are in the Jake MM Band. I am greatly influenced by progressive rock artists of the 70's and 80's as well as modern progessive metal. I feel that the thing that sets us apart from most other bands in pop culture today is the use of keyboards in our music. No, not just piano, String Pads, Choirs, Sythesizers and more. This helps intesify the true feeling of the music, giving it more body and feeling than the others. I believe my music has potential and that it has the ability to draw a large audience into becoming progressive rock fans.

Lyrics

2080

Written By: Jake Mattison

I see you witness with your eyes
The midnight sun and cloudy skies
I never dreamed I'd see this day
2080's here to stay

I was lost in years gone past
I stood still as time went fast
you have to tell me what to do
I'm lost in time with life anew

Buildings high as mountain tops
no trees, no life, no plants, no crops
Barren land goes on for miles,
Roads are made from rubber tiles

Will I ever know?
Will I ever see?

(Voice of a 1940's Radio show of The Time Machine)

"An escape, Designed to free you from the four walls of today for half an hour of sci-fi adventure. Escape with us now to the year 100,008 In a world were beauty and terror live side by side as H.G Wells describes within his immortal story... The Time Machine."

The Light

Written By: Jake Mattison

A tear rolls down my cheek tonight
for the one thing in my life that's right
Am I the one you dream (of) at night
Or the one you wish to smite?

Now all the things I thought were true
are dashed away from what I knew
Whatever is there for me to do?
I'm just not getting through to you

Well I always knew that you lied
Who knew that words hurt deep inside?
No matter what I had tried,
You'd always find a way hide

Oh well, all the things I wish to say
to tell you that I feel this way
I just can't bear another day
I know tomorrow my heart will pay

On this highway we call life
The road is filled with love and strife
I'm in a tunnel as dark as night
but up ahead I see the light!

Now everything just seems so clear
I'm free at last from what I fear
the road is straight no need to stear
I'm really glad to see you dear

Now I know what you're thinkin'
It's just a three minute song
well hell no it ain't!
This song's gotta be long!
But I'll make you a deal
It's just a minute more for you
If You listen to me try
To play guitar hero two!

Smile

Written By: Jake Mattison

One day upon a sun glazed field
You stood here by my side
hand in hand we walked away
from the dangers that we defied
The meadow lit by amber skies
On that scenic August eve
You told me that you cared for me,
Yet in love, you don't believe

But you lied
I can see your love inside you dear
and you lied
So please my love don't show me fear

cos I see your smile
in the light of a brand new day
and I know your true
to yourself, and not what you say

Perhaps I'm just another man
among a favored lot
You mean to say that I'm not right
when your love is all i sought
So that's how it is, I guess I'll just give in
for you choice I clearly see
you told me that It can't be us
you and I will never be "we"

But you lied
I can see your love inside you dear
and you lied
So please my love don't show me fear

cos I see your smile
in the light of a brand new day
and I know your true
to yourself, and not what you say

cos I see your smile
in the light of a brand new day
and I know your true
to yourself, and not what you say
