His vocals have been described as pure with a rock edge. His music spans the gamut of the alternative genre with a listening base that ranges from Snow Patrol lovers to 30 Seconds To Mars Echelon but it wasn't always this way. 

Matt grew up in a small Central Florida town, the kind of town where dreams seem to be just a bit further out of reach and where many people simply see a dream as something unrealistic. He longed for something more and started to find his direction after taking a guitar class during his senior year of High School. There is where Lande began to find his passion. After starting to hone his skills as a songwriter, guitarist and vocalist in local and regional bands he eventually found himself at the point of joining alt rockers’ StorySide: B.

Shortly after joining the band, they signed a deal with Gotee/EMI and toured extensively in support of the album "Everything and More". Matt co-wrote the title track which was released as a single and climbed to the top of the charts. Lande spent 3 years with the band and then decided to move to Los Angeles where he signed a new deal for his own music as the lead vocalist, guitarist, writer and co-producer for the band Heaven Is Where. The following 5 years in Los Angeles were spent releasing 2 full length albums (Stories From Yesterday & Welcome Home The Child), a side project (DarkStar the EP) and performing with both his band and acoustically as a duo or solo until fulfilling his record deal.

Lande relocated to Portland, OR in 2013. This marked a fresh start for his indie music career as well as gigs working in film and television as a Double and Stand-In for actors such as Noah Wyle, Travis Fimmel, Steve Buscemi, Alexis Denisof and more. 
The end of 2015 brought the release of his critically acclaimed album GLOW; a collection of emotive Alt Pop that would easily fit alongside the mainstream singer-songwriter material currently heard on terrestrial radio.

The success of GLOW gave Matt the confidence to experiment more with his new material, leading him to self-produce and mix his album "Boxes" in 2017 and most recently, his brand new album "Aftermath" which released May 24th, 2019.
