Meet the Artist: Carter Matthews

I got the chance to interview the extremely talented Carter Matthews. He's bringing a new spark to the music scene and his laid back personality makes it easy for fans of all ages to appreciate and enjoy his music! He's got a lot of potential and is currently on the path to doing some amazing things in the future. Check out the interview below! 

Los Angeles, California

How did you first get introduced to music? What made you start writing/playing?  
I got my first drums kit when I was a little kid, and when I was fifteen I started singing and writing music because it was an outlet to let all of my creativity flow. 

Where do you find your inspiration when you start to write music? Do you come up with the melody first, or the lyrics? 
It all just depends on the type of song. If it's something more heartfelt and slow I usually start with lyrics. When it comes to a fast dance song I usually focus on the melody first. My inspiration usually comes from past experiences in my life or just stories I think would make for a nice tune. 

How would you describe your typical day?
I don't think I know what a "typical day" is haha. 

What has been your favorite performance or tour so far? Why?
I think it was when I played this festival with Wiz Khalfia. There were people everywhere and things got real cray... Haha.

At this point in your life what would you say is your greatest achievement?
I don't think I have a greatest achievement yet. I just try to live everyday with the intentions to do something amazing.

What's on your iPod at the moment?
I have so much music on my IPod but I've been really jamming Active Child, Passenger, and The 1975

How would you describe the music scene in the South in comparison to other major cities or music capitals?
The majority of the South's music scene is pretty bogus... But there are always people in every city that keep good music alive and they are so important! But I love the south, it's home.

Best advice you've been given?
Don't Quit!

What current projects are you working on? Is a new record in the works?
I'm always writing new music and new songs will be dropping very soon :) Be sure to look for my face coming to a stage near you!

If you could be a character from any movie, who would you be and why?
I'd wanna be Jack Sparrow! It's a pirate's life for me!
