Artist Spotlight: Matthew Koma

Time for another round of Artist Spotlight!

Matthew Koma is a name you might be familiar with from his appearance on Far East Movement’s song, “Ain’t Coming Down” — as well as some other pop-tastic tracks. Now Matt is out on his own with a new EP! Matthew’s voice is like butter and his choruses are incredibly catchy! I suggest taking a listen to his new EP below! I have been playing the single, “Specturm” all week. #musicrules

I wanted to get to know this talented singer/songwriter — so take a look at what inspires his music, what he considers his musical guilty pleasure and much more. 

How would you describe your sound?

This is always an impossible question to answer!!! By the time you read my answer, you can check out one of my songs and put it in a box of your choice.

What kind of music is your guilty pleasure?

Christmas music.

Who are some fellow artists you look up to?

Really dig what First Aid Kit is doing. They made an amazing record and write beautiful songs.

Who would you say is your female musical equivalent?

The girl who sings on Spectrum w Zedd.

Your EP came out this past May, are you working on new material and where can fans catch you live?

I’m about to hit the road with Owl City for a bunch of dates and I’m working on a ton of new music. My guys Twice As Nice just moved to the states from Australia and we’ve been doing a bunch of stuff together.

What was the last album you bought?

I re-bought Superdrag – Regretfully Yours

What inspires you?

Goldfish. The food.
