Armed with a dynamic, soulful voice and a strong knack for writing charismatic lyrics, newcomer Matt Schuster may have just recently planted roots in Nashville but is primed for stardom in the country genre. Hailing from a small town in Illinois, Schuster has had his sights set on being a singer/songwriter from a young age. After hearing Keith Urban’s “Days Go By” come through the radio waves during a hunting trip with his dad, Schuster was hooked.
Now drawing inspiration from the likes of Brett Eldredge, Ed Sheeran, and John Mayer, his polished vocal range has been dubbed the love child of Chris Stapleton and Tyler Childers while he fuses the depth of country and the versatility of pop.
After organically growing his massive fanbase by curating content showcasing his favorite covers in front of the picturesque backroads he was raised on, his songwriting and unique flair was quickly noticed on TikTok. Releasing music independently for the last two years, Schuster has already found four of his songs in the top 200 of Spotify’s Country Global chart, racking up over 60M streams.
His first official release of 2023, “Wasted Prayers” was penned alongside Jonny Price, Adam Yaron and further showcases Schuster’s thoroughly blended mix of smooth yet gritty delivery in the cleverly worded tale of a drunken, unanswered plea for another chance at love. Schuster is focused on continuing to earn the respect of Country music fans and looks forward to connecting with people through approachable storytelling and compelling live performance.
