Our Unfortunate Ugly Valentine (2017)



Matthew ‘MJT’ Hardy is a new and ground-breaking  musician.  Born and raised in Yonkers, Matthew adds a fresh new flavor to the music world by mixing a rich orchestral sound with the earthy beats of Hip Hop.  Matthew has had a musical vision well into his childhood and has found inspiration from various artists such as Rakim, Kanye West and Jadakiss.  His eclectic soul has also been inspired by amazing talents such as Carole King, Prince and Queen.  But not to be understated is Matthew’s respect and love for the classical as well!  His signature violin and string sound come from his love of Mozart and Beethoven.  Matthew is excited to introduce himself to the world through his freshman project entitled ‘Our Unfortunate Ugly Valentine’.  This album, released in March of 2017, has been met with favorable criticism and overwhelming adoration by his followers.  Although recently released the conception of this project began well over five years ago when he began his recording using rudimentary equipment in the basement of his home.  With the complications of trying to establish himself as a self-sufficient man the project took a backseat while Matthew sought to get life started with school, work and a place of his own.  The dream, rather-vision, had a calling too strong for Matthew to ignore and so he set out to unpack the original project and bring it back to life.  With the help of a friend, who had a more professional studio, Matthew commenced to rerecording and remastering his original project.  The result is a vibrant, energetic product that demonstrates his creativity through lyricism, sick beats and a soaring philharmonic sound.  On March 10, 2017 Matthew released this album to the world through iTunes, Spotify, YouTube and other musical outlets.  The following day Matthew introduced himself to the world through the stunning performance of his first show as an artist.  Matthew wowed the audience with his flow, dance and inspirational message.  This is an artist to be watched.  His star-power will ever brighten till it dominates the stage and world!
