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 Firing Squad”: I Cried Buckets of Tears




Sitting in the dimly lit theater, I had no idea what to expect as the opening credits of “The Firing Squad” began to roll. Little did I know that I was about to embark on an emotional journey that would leave me reaching for tissues and struggling to catch my breath.

The film follows the true story of three Christians facing execution by firing squad in a third world country. Directed by Timothy A. Chey, it features a stellar cast including James Barrington, Kevin Sorbo, and Cuba Gooding Jr. Each actor brings their character to life with such authenticity and depth that it’s impossible not to be fully immersed in their struggles and triumphs.

As the plot unfolded, I found myself drawn into a world of despair and desperation, but also one of unwavering faith and hope. The characters’ journey from darkness to light, from despair to redemption, resonated with me on a deeply personal level. I couldn’t help but be moved by their courage and resilience in the face of unimaginable adversity.

But it was the performances that truly stole the show. James Barrington’s portrayal of the protagonist’s internal turmoil was nothing short of mesmerizing, while Kevin Sorbo and Cuba Gooding Jr. delivered powerhouse performances that left me in awe.

And then there was the message of the film—that no matter how bleak the circumstances may seem, there is always hope. That even in our darkest moments, faith has the power to transform lives and bring about redemption. It was a message that hit me like a ton of bricks, leaving me with tears streaming down my face and a renewed sense of purpose.

As the credits rolled and the lights came up, I found myself struggling to put into words the impact that “The Firing Squad” had on me. All I could manage was, “I cried buckets of tears.” And I wasn’t alone. As I looked around the theater, I saw others wiping their eyes and exchanging emotional glances.

In the end, “The Firing Squad” wasn’t just a movie—it was an experience. An experience that left me feeling inspired, uplifted, and profoundly grateful for the power of cinema to touch the soul. And for that, I will be forever grateful.

The movie is set to premiere in the theatres worldwide on August 2, 2024. And this is definitely a must watch movie, reminding people of the strength of faith.
