“Judge me on my work, not who I’ve worked with” is the credo in which Songsbury (Mat Teofilo) bases all his thoughts, ideas, and creative works on. A humble artist with the presence of a star, Songsbury is able to engage audiences everywhere through all aspects of his music.


Songsbury was bred into music from the age of 4. A decorated classical pianist with a performer’s degree awarded by the Royal Conservatory of Music, he is a well-educated, well-trained, and well-versed artist.


Songsbury’s singing and song writing started at the age of 12 with the composition and performance of his self-penned song “Close to Your Heart”, a song that landed him numerous awards, scholarships, bursaries, and first prizes at talent competitions (Arts Richmond Hill, Celebration of the Arts, Markham Idol, Supernova Battle of The Bands to mention a few), television appearances and performances (Rogers Television, TLN, Chin TV), as well as singing the anthem at a Toronto Blue Jays game.  


This publicity has led Songsbury to work with some of the most influential people in the Canadian music industry including Farley Flex (Canadian Idol) and Bill Banham (former Senior VP of Sony Music Entertainment, Director at Virgin Records). This also allowed him to share the stage with such acts as Suzie McNeil, Neverest, Aleesia, Rebel Emergency, and Christopher Dallo. Songsbury was also front man for the rock band “Unbound”, which toured much of southern Ontario as well as garnering national Canadian college radio play for their single “Take It or Leave It”.  


Songsbury’s catalogue of songs has grown tenfold over the years and has granted him a top spot on the Billboard charts with artist Diplo’s “Revolution EP”, as well as numerous songs and collaborations with other artists including Madonna, Miley Cyrus (Created the Madonna/Miley mash-up of Don’t Tell Me to Stop/We Can’t Stop for Miley Unplugged MTV), Victoria Duffield (co-wrote with Victoria for her upcoming album), and Vita Chambers (co-wrote Vita’s single “A+D”). Songsbury has also composed music for film (Vivo Per Amore) which was awarded best drama at LA’s International Student Film Festival and was nominated for best original score in Montreal’s Young Cuts Film Festival. He has recently finished scoring a short film which premiered at Cannes Film Festival (Hostage) as well as a full length documentary (Escape from Room 18) that is to be released in early 2017. The range of musical styles is what gives Songsbury the inspiration for new and fresh ideas.


Currently, Songsbury is residing and working in Los Angeles while putting the finishing touches on his debut EP to be released in 2017. He is also gearing up for live performances across Canada and the US starting in the fall of this year.


Songsbury has gone through many evolutions as an artist and continues to evolve constantly. From his beginnings as a classical pianist, to a solo singer/songwriter, to front man of a rock band, to the Songsbury of today, there is no telling what is to come from the mind of this musical master. This is what is exciting, new and refreshing; an artist that is not only able to create the art, but display it for the whole world to see in a way that is real and full of original emotion.
