Matthew Good is a multi-platinum selling Canadian recording artist, best known for his signature vocal style, guitar-driven melodies, and cinematic lyrics.

He began his career as the frontman for the Matthew Good Band, one of the most successful Canadian alternative rock bands during the 1990s and early 2000s.

Rock radio staples such as “Hello Timebomb,” “Everything Is Automatic,” “Indestructible,” “Apparitions,” and “Load Me Up” made the group a household name, selling out shows throughout Canada over seven years and four full-length album releases. Along the way, the group picked up Juno Awards for Best Group (2000) and Best Rock Album for Beautiful Midnight that same year.

His most recent studio album, Moving Walls, was praised as his strongest solo effort, and a “haunting and cinematic piece of art.” One reviewer even opined that on Moving Walls, Good had moved “into the shoes left vacant by Leonard Cohen.” But despite the somewhat morose tone of the record, “Good’s vision embodies the immediacy of the ordinary, and a life discovered between the cracks,” another review concluded. “Ever the fantastic wordsmith, Good uses misty-eyed symbolism and how’d-he-get-from-here-from-there metaphors to add oceans of depth to even the simplest acoustic songs. Simply put, he has a deep love of words and the crafting of a phrase.”

As the world, politically and culturally, continues to spiral into seemingly darker and darker places, Good has been there in lockstep, to hold up a mirror to society’s adoration of violence, the hypocrisy of those in power, and the injustices everywhere that permeate his music.
