Singer, Writer, Musician, Mental Health Activist
Matt's performed as a musician for over 30 years, releasing music consistently. His band, Matt McGuinness & the MLC, is the latest iteration of a passion for music that’s lasted a lifetime.
A few years ago, Matt inadvertently began to write, record, and perform material based on his own mental health challenges, such as anxiety, panic attacks, lack of self-belief, parenting and more. The subject matter seemed to immediately resonate with audiences, forming the seeds of the project We Are What We Overcome.
