Things begin in funny ways, sometimes you head down pathways that you would never expect
This is how Matt Coburn began his journey to where he is now. Always a “metal head” Matt originally did not listen to the RAP music genre; instead tuning into the likes of Slipknot, Mudvayne, Lamb of God, Trivum, Whitechapel, Suicide Silence and Killswitch Engage in ways of enjoying music, the younger Coburn would definitely be be amused at the thought of turning rap artist, however; upon a comedy project in which his elder brother approached him on; where, he wanted Matt to do a rap verse, he took this up. At first, admittedly he was unable to fluently phrase and get the correct rhythm and technique and was therefore booted off the project.
But that made him determined to succeed, so he decided to listen to fellow Australian Hip Hop Arist “Hilltop Hoods” song “Chace That Feeling” in the hopes that he would gain his brothers approval and put him back on the comedic track. Unfortunately though…the track never came about.
But for Matt, now working at Funfields, in which his job was to supervise kids on rides was beginning to dream about becoming a rap artist so instead would rap his favourite albums every shift.
Things became serious when at the end of 2015 he released his debut single and music video (filmed by Melbourne based Film Studio, Dingo Cross Films) on youtube “Waiting For Rain” Following this, in 2016 he released his first mixtape “Begin”
From this this Matt has been playing shows across Victoria and also would collaborate with other hip hop artists such as, Macho Duck, Zam ,Clue’s, Chapterr, Mini Coop and Braidz
Matt Coburn has performed along side American Hip Hop artist; Futuristic and fellow Aussie; Seth Sentry
Matt continued announcing a second single at the beginning of 2017 with a second music video. “Ferris Bueller” which again was produced and filmed at DCF Studios in Thornbury; This release was followed closely by the announcement of second mixtape “Woodstock”.
Matt is now embarking on a string of shows both in home state of Victoria and interstate shows.
