Matt Wheatley is the quintessential small town kid with big dreams. However, being born legally blind took him on a much different path than most.
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.
Now writing for artists, film, and television Matt has had several placements including spots on The Voice, Big Bang Theory, Super Bowl L, Amazon Kids, and Life In Pieces to name just a few.
