Matias, an American / Colombian crossover pop artist bridges the musical gap between Reggaeton and American Pop. The latest project from Matias has exposed a side to his artistry, which has never been seen before. After a 9-month stay in Colombia, South America there was a revelation to Matias.
“Being born in the states I never learned to speak Spanish I didn’t have to, all of my friends spoke English, but I always really loved Spanish music. Something about the rhythm and the beat always captivated me.”
It was upon this realization that had sparked the theme behind Matias latest EP, to blend the elements of Reggaeton and Pop.
“Our country is so divided in these times. As an artist I feel it’s my moral responsibility to try bridging that divide and the strongest tool do that is through music. When people connect through music the world seems that much smaller and people become much more relatable.”
Matias has had the chance to play shows for crowds of 2000+. His first single “Words I Say” was featured on local radio due to the overwhelming fan requests. With 4 EPs, 5 music videos, and countless hours on stage and in the studio, it has been an amazing journey for Matias to reach this point in his career.
His latest single “ Wildside” has opened up the door for many amazing opportunities for Matias, including opening for stars like Aaron Carter and Ryan Cabrera.
