Biography

Does he sing? Yes. Does he rap? Yes. Does he do both on the same track? Absolutely! Matthew Bracey has been involved with music since he was very young, but he hasn't always done the type of music God wanted him to. He used to love secular music and had dreams of pursuing it as a career. However, God's plans for Matthew were much different than his own.

By my musical involvment in school, Matthew met friends who were in total devotion to Christ. Their passion rubbed off on him, and he discovered a greater spiritual life than he had ever known. Because of their influence, Matthew decided to take his first shot at full-time ministry with a singing group known as Sevyn. The group would later be known as Simple Faith.

During his tenure in Sevyn, his zeal for the Lord greatly increased. But there were many other musical oppertunities available to me him prevented him from giving 100% to the group. He wanted to be obidient to the Lord, but there were still parts of him that he had reserved to himself. In early 2004 Matthew and the group parted ways. It was at this point that the Lord went deeper into His personal work on Matthew Bracey.

Soon after his departure from Sevyn, Matthew was exposed to the ministry of Elder G. Craig Lewis. His ministry played an intricate role in removing secular music from his life completely. Thus, allowing Matthew to give his all to the Lord and letting Him use the gift He gave him as He desired. On July 4, 2004, Matthew re-dedicated his life to Christ and was re-baptized at the New Jerusalem Baptist Church in Cincinnati.

From there, the Lord opened many doors for Matthew in Christian music. That same year he was featured on "The Message Radio Show Mix LP, Lesun's album "God Fearing Rap Music" and the T.H.I.S. Click Records mixtape "Serious Series Vol. 2". He was also afforded the oppertunity to start his own independent record label, "Ain't Yo Average Music."

Before the start of 2005 Matthew Bracey signed a one-album deal with T.H.I.S. Click Records, which is headed by National Recording Artist, k-Drama. 2005 would bring further blessings as Matthew became the host of a Cincinnati Radio Show known as "Morning Inspiration". He was also named the Ast. Gospel Director of WCIN 1480am. Many more musical features would follow. Including an appearance on k-Drama's album "14 2 Life: Illustrations Of Self" and "The Message Vol. 2: More Than A Radio Show, Mix LP."

2006 was been great as well. Matthew was featured on "Serious Series Vol. 3", k-Drama & MC Till's album, "Black Guy Meets White Man", B.I.G.S.T.E.V.E.'s album "Serve The Lord", DeeJay Roberts album, "Prodigy Of Promise", and he Executive Produced the first project from Ain't Yo Average Music by Deacon D.A.S., "Deaconstruction: Destroy & Rebuild".

Much more is on tap for Matthew Bracey, including the release of his debut album "...As Recorded By Matthew" on Ain't Yo Average Music/T.H.I.S. Click Records. We pray that you are touched by his ministry and that Jesus has way in your life. Stay in the Bible, and keep it Christ!
