Most people wouldn't consider being born legally blind a "stroke of luck", but as Matt Wheatley would put it, "I was given the gift of exceptional hearing at birth, not given a handicap."
Kentucky born, now a Los Angeles native, Wheatley took to music at a very early age as he struggled with his vision. His "saving grace" became his ears, and through them he cultivated a special connection to music.
"Being different and going through the struggles I did early on left me with the foundation I have today. Perseverance, hard work, and staying humble are words I live by. They're especially important in the music industry. When you're 17 years old, taking driving lessons at the Kentucky School for the Blind, you can't help but learn a few things in that process. And my life has a million of those lessons. Stay humble, and stay hungry."
By his teenage years Wheatley was recording, touring, and producing professionally. Once off the road there became a shift in focus, as he honed his skills in songwriting, producing, and engineering.
Matt has over 15+ years of experience writing and producing for artists, film, and television with several placements across a wide array of projects.
