Matt Sequeira’s Journey As A Songwriter




Matt Sequeira has had a long journey as an independent artist. He was inspired to pursue his music career from an early age after visiting Elvis Presley’s mansion in Graceland, Tennessee. Infected by the visions he saw for himself, Matt knew he wanted to become an entertainer.

Matt’s career as a musician began by making covers of other songs in his bedroom. As a self-taught guitarist and singer, Matt didn’t feel comfortable showing off his talent until he was in high school. During this, he began playing more often and became less afraid to show people his passion. “During school breaks, I would perform to the students around me,” said Matt. Eventually being encouraged to audition for American Idol in 2015, his audition was broadcasted on live TV. Since then, all his goals moving forward have been centered around becoming a musician.

Matt’s career took a big turn when he was invited to work on some records at the famous Capitol Records tower. He tributes his time there as a monumental moment in his career, learning a lot about production. “My greatest achievement as a musician had the opportunity to record several singles in the iconic Capitol Records Tower,” said Matt. “The studio is home to so many number one hit songs and top-charting artists that I truly felt that my career as an artist was not only moving in the right direction but taking huge steps towards success.”

After taking a short break to focus back on his music, Matt got the opportunity to tour the Azores islands of Portugal in 2018. During his time there he played a number of shows and even sold out of merch during his week 1 run. “I lived for 3 months in the Azores islands of Portugal performing many paid shows and sold out on merch within the first week,” said Matt. “It meant a lot to me since it was the first time I felt people connecting to my music.”

In 2019 Matt released a single called “Coming Over” with collaborator Angel Sanchez, making his debut on all major platforms. He didn’t release another track until earlier this past year. “Under The Covers” marked Matt’s first single of 2020, and a turning point in his songwriting style. Stepping away from the electronic pop vibes of “Coming Over” Matt offered up a unique blend of Pop and Punk.

Last month, Matt released his first debut project, a 5 song EP titled “Weirdo”. The extended play lasts about 13 minutes in run time, and offers more PopPunk tunes, showcasing Matt’s growth as a songwriter.

Matt plans to follow up his debut EP with a new PopPunk version of “Deck The Halls” in early December. Check out the links below for more information and to stay posted on Matt’s upcoming releases.

The fundamental features of community festivals’ social implications




Music’s power is an extraordinarily vital and unique instrument that improves the human experience. When combined with a social gathering of individuals from all walks of life who have come to appreciate this art, it creates a force unlike any other. Music allows people to imagine their lives and evoke powerful memories. Music is integral to cultural gatherings, festivals, and belief systems. Sound and rhythm patterns provide a unique insight into an individual’s thoughts on current culture, subcultures, and societal concerns. Community festivals allow people of a community to engage in socialization, entertainment, and the formation of social networks, all of which can contribute to the promotion of community cohesiveness and the development of social capital within a community. 

In addition to bringing people of all colors, races, and ethnicities together, these festivals also play a pivotal role in promoting upcoming artists in the music industry. Festivals have long been one of the most prolific venues for promoting new music and exposing listeners to contemporary artists. The absence of festivals and venues has significantly hampered fresh content and talent exposure. Music is vital during festivals because it creates an instant link among those who attend. Festival music speaks to our human yearning to connect, and music is a means of self-expression that transcends all language borders. Picking up performances at smaller or local music festivals is a terrific method for new performers to get into the live music scene.
