Matt Hutchison, a.k.a ortoPilot is becoming somewhat of a global youTube sensation.

ortoPilot’s current youTube stats, subscriber base and viewer comments, speak volumes.

Matt started life with music in his blood. Since the age of 4 he's had a musical instrument with him wherever he goes. Starting off on the piano and taking on the saxophone throughout his early teens, he had a wide range of influences including his older brother's vast cd collection.

Experimenting with sequencing and producing in college led to Matt writing and recording his own songs. But something was missing... having been afraid from picking a guitar up for over 18 years, Matt finally decided to take the plunge and buy one.

After a few years of practicing and writing, Matt produced his first album 'come into my world', where his song writing is portrayed through electronic based grooves. Wanting a name for this project, he set out to find the most apt band name. Listening to the cd, over and over, it all became clear...

ortoPilot. The music taking control.

A few years passed while Matt locked himself away with his new toy / investment, a trusty Taylor 814ce. Getting massively into acoustic music, he found the music of John Mayer. Practicing his riffs based on various acoustic influences, Matt soon developed his own way to get his point across.

In June 2006, Matt discovered a site called YouTube. Not thinking anything of it, he uploaded a couple of acoustic cover videos just for fun. Two turned into three and the YouTube addiction began...

Inspired by the amazing feedback, Matt continues to upload both covers and originals to the site with the aim to reach out to people through music.

Matt is currently working on his third originals album which should be released towards the back end of 2009.
