Our music will make you want to dance and sing along. We're loud, and let out the soul. We play Rock'n'Roll!


Matthew Jason is a songwriter from the suburbs of Chicago. He learned music from a very early age, and has been writing and performing since the age of 13. Many bands and other projects have come and gone, but he rediscovered his love for writing and performing in the fall of 2008 when he formed The Collective Debut. In November of that year, Matthew and the band recorded their self-titled EP. Since it's completion they've been writing and playing all over the Chicagoland area in venues like: The Elbo Room, The Cubby Bear, Penny Road Pub, and more. With a wide variety of influences from classic-rock, alternative, and other indie music genres, Matthew Jason & The Collective Debut write and cover songs that are dynamic and full of energy.
