It’s officially official!
I’m absolutely thrilled to say that our friend Matt Simons was signed to Sony Music Europe yesterday after a crazy whirlwind week where he song “With You” BLEW UP in the Netherlands after being featured on a Dutch TV show. It’s been in the Top 40 rotation all week and now Matty is officially signed to a deal with Sony Music! AHHH
Matt has been working his BUTT off for years in the NYC music scene— playing jazz clubs and touring (usually with his BFF Chris Ayer… hi Chris!) and he totally deserves this. Ryan and Matt have been best friends since elementary or middle school (their houses are literally a minute walk from each other). They taught themselves music together, played on the same travel baseball teams, sang in choirs together, and still are so close. I couldn’t be happier for Matt.
I may have got a little teary eyed yesterday because dreams come true, guys. Seriously. And I’m totally going to find a way to go Europe to see Matt tour this summer. Because obviously.
