Based in Brandon, Manitoba, Matt Cory has been playing guitar and writing songs for over 10 years. Matt has been playing in bars and clubs since he was 17 years old with various local bands ranging from alternative metal to indie-folk groups and hasn't slowed down since.
In 2017, Matt released a whopping 4 EPs under his instrumental rock project titled “Engines of Creation”. He wrote, recorded, mixed and mastered everything himself with little guidance. “It was my dream to write and release my own instrumental music,” Cory says, “I have always been a big Joe Satriani fan and once I discovered how to write melodies like him I couldn't stop writing.”
Matt began fronting his own band in 2018 as lead vocalist covering songs from bands such as Alice in Chains, Stone Temple Pilots and Filter. After a year of playing covers and learning how to front a band, Matt wrote his solo EP titled “Scars on the Ceiling”. It was once again written, recorded, mixed and mastered by himself with little assistance. “It’s a vocal-driven hard rock EP that utilizes my influences loudly including Velvet Revolver, Alice Cooper, Motley Crue and Ghost. Kicking off the EP is the no-nonsense chugging title track and takes you on a hard rockin’ roller coaster withs all the ups and down a music lover could want.”
Matt Cory is currently an unsigned artist and his EP Scars on the Ceiling is available through various streaming sites including Spotify, Apple Music, GooglePlay and many more.
