After Mitch Allan heard Matt's homemade demos, the hit songwriter invited him to LA where the two recorded and produced the entire EP. The highlight of Mat's stay in LA came at the end when he was unexpectedly given the opportunity to revamp an old track co-written by Kara DioGuardi. "The EP was finished and Mitch was just showing me some old tracks that had never gotten picked up", Matt says. " I heard I Am which was written by Mitch and his partner Kara and thought wow this is great but it n

Biography

Having taken to Classical and Jazz piano since the age of 5, the Long Island native quickly found music as a form of escape. "I realized early on I was never going to be good at sports and needed another way of attracting girls," he jokes. By the age of 12, he began playing guitar and soon after found his niche as a songwriter. After two attempts in the studio, the first at 13 in Manhattan and the second at 15 at the famed Sound Emporium in Nashville, Mat found himself at a crossroads.` "I basically had to choose between going out, touring and promoting myself, or staying in school and continuing to nurture my songwriting." Matt chose the latter and looking back on it he made the right decision. Those new demos got him to LA.

For now the budding songwriter resides in suburban Long Island while he studies literature at Hofstra University. As for balancing college, and life in the music industry, Matt is the first to admit that it does get tough. " I was recently filling out the description section on Twitter" he says, "I couldn't fit everything in so I just wrote damn, I'm busy."

And now tonight, I need one of those happy endings

Don’t you know that everything comes naturally

JUST US TWO Lyrics
Mat Brandon
Producer Mitch Allan

The white flag here says I surrender, and my apology is the words I speak,
If we used to say that this was forever than it makes me think where have you been
But through a thousand lies, and a thousand goodbyes

CHORUS
Please don’t make me leave because I don’t want to be alone
I’m trying to find the air to breathe, never make it on my own
And please just let me stay because I just want to be with you
Everyone’s got stuff to say but tonight it’s just us two

Stand here through darkness and moonlight, just in case you thought that id disappear
So what can I do to make this alright, is it all I fear
But is a wandering eye and a stupid lie enough to do me in

CHORUS

I’d sit upon a setting sun, id climb across the stormy seas, and when I’m done ill bring you back to me

And please don’t make leave, because I don’t want be alone, I’m trying to find the air to breathe and tonight I’m coming home
I’m trying to find the words to say that all I ever want is you, yea tonight it’s just us two

I AM

I AM LYRICS
Written By Kara Dioguardi and Mitch Allan
Vocals Mat Brandon

The one who left you standing crying on the corner, the one you loved too much who didn't love you back
The one who broke your heart and left you out of order, those days are gone,
The hand that held you but was never meant to hold you, the kiss that touched your lips but never lingered on
The eyes that looked inside but never cared to know you, those days are gone

Cause I am your dead and knight brought back to life I’m your rescuer I can be your alibi when you need to hide I am
Not what you had that’s in the past I’m more than that and no one’s ever gonna love you no one’s ever gonna love you like i am

So many times when you just felt like you were dying, so many moments that you wish you could take back
With empty promises it’s hard to keep on trying when it feels so wrong, those days are gone

CHORUS

Broken we've all been there in the silence of despair, wishing that we’d never cared

CHORUS

I WOULD RUN

Written By: Mat Brandon Producer Mitch Allan

Lyrics Mat Brandon
Producer Mitch Allan

And I would run, and could this be everything

She’s got me bending over backwards looking over sideways, she’s got the eyes of eleven skies what would it take to make you realize
That you’re the pistol to my holster your everything I needed, what could I do to show you that, there aren’t no reason for a rhyme
But people change and fall away and I know I’ve made a thousand mistakes

CHORUS
And I would run to where you are just to show you id go that far
And you’re the hope, that sets me free, the only truth that I believe and could this be everything, everything

She’s got me tapping in a chokehold praying on my knees now she don’t forget to pull me down, but still I’m needing her around
Because when everything crumbles and the sky falls down, there’s only one thing left to do just watch it fall away with you
But people change and fall away and i know I’ve made a thousand mistakes

CHORUS

And I would run to where you are just to show you id go that far and burn this city down just to show you there’s a star here you are just to show you id go that far cause every single day your pushing me away

And I would run to where you are just to show you id go that far
And you could see the one thing true that you need me like I need you and could this be everything

LAY ME DOWN

LAY ME DOWN
Lyrics Mat Brandon
Producer Mitch Allan

Here I go I want the world to know, don’t want to stop me when I’m dreaming,
And I could try to live a thousand lies, don’t want to sacrifice these feelings but now
I don’t know which way to turn

I’m sleeping with the TV on tonight, I need to something to help me find some light
cause even when the stars fall on my face, it’s never bright enough to leave this place
So lay me down with you

If I could fall before i learn to crawl, there aren’t no hope for finding meaning and
Today is here aren’t no tomorrow near so what’s it the point in always dreaming but no
Everything falls to the ground

CHORUS

And tonight, we go back to where were from and the heroes move along
We go back to where were from when the right outweighed the wrong

I’m sleeping with the TV on tonight I need to try and get some guiding light
Cause even when the stars fall on my face, it’s never bright enough to leave this place
So lay me down with you so lay me down with you lay me down to sleep tis the end.
