Read Artist Biographies Below:
Matt began his music career about the time he grew tall enough to reach the keys of an old piano in the shed of his childhood home in North Anson Maine. He remembers that old piano with fondness. "It was big and tired looking...I think that only a few dozen keys actually worked" He remembers more "Since the piano was in the shed, I could pound away, as loud as I could. My mom used to say she never heard that piano sound so lovely, but in retrospect, she sent me to "play" the shed piano because she couldn't hear it in the house." "And of course as time passed and my music made more sense, she welcomed me back to the piano in the house."
Matt began to work on his talents while in College and being an outcast, to some degree, was a measure of achievement. While at Thomas More College in Northern Kentucky, Matt directed music for the campus liturgies while earning a B.A. in Theatre. In was during his college years that he managed to land an appearance in the Oscar winning film of 1988, "Rain Main" starring Dustin Hoffman and Tom Cruise, in which Matt portrayed an autistic savant. Matt also wrote and performed on screen "I like to sing"
Upon graduation, Matt spent a year touring with the Repertory Theatre of America. Matt starred in the Revival of "Butterflies are Free" and "Neil Simon's "Plaza Suite" To Matt "This was one of the most taxing yet marvelous experience in his brief acting career."
In August of 2000, Matt moved to Connecticut while working as a professional fundraiser. Within two years he left and began running his own business and also writing music again. This album is the first music written by Matt after a 13 year personal hiatus. "Christ is Born, God and Man are One Today" is the combined creation of Carolyn Cavanagh and Matt Mattingly. Matt originally joined the project as a background vocalist. And the rest, as they say, is history.
With over 15 years of writing, performing and recording music, Carolyn Cavanagh shows her prowess in the music industry with the release of Christ is Born.
Although Christ is Born is Carolyn's first full length CD project, she handles the task with a grace and maturity that comes from years of inward preparation. Her now seasoned vocals add warmth and charm to the project as well as compliment the unique "stylings" of her musical partner Matt Mattingly. Carolyn contributes five original songs to the album, and co-arranged two traditional Christmas carols with producer Mike Damon. A team that proves to be an extraordinary combination.
Carolyn's music and voice have piqued the interest of folks in a variety of venues including Underdog Entertainment who were thrilled with the "Enya like" vocals she recorded for their Hallmark commercial. She also drew interest with Maine based composer Tim Janis. So much so, that Tim invited Carolyn to share a Christmas concert with him and his ensemble at Messiah Christian Church Wells, ME in December 2003.
With her next project "Somewhere..." already underway, Carolyn's enthusiasm and determination are stronger than ever. She plans to have production finished by fall 2005. A welcomed endeavor for Carolyn as she pursues this long awaited turn in the road.
