Through his heartfelt lyrics and warm acoustic playing, Matt DeAngelis shares a message of hope, that by releasing our fears to a higher power and embracing each moment, freedom is ours to find.
Matt’s raw vocal delivery gives the impression he’s sharing his story straight from his journal rather than in a polished recording booth.

Backing him is minimal instrumentation, just acoustic guitar, and subtle percussion, keeping the focus on Matt’s message of coping and overcoming.
Through his songs, Matt shares his soul intending to inspire others to never give up. His lyrics advise accepting life's uncontrolled events with grace or turning to one's religion or loved ones for peace. Matt cites his faith as a primary influence on both his music and his journey to cope with OCD. But far from being preachy, his lyrics ring universal. Whether listeners find freedom through faith, relationships, or within, Matt’s message translates across beliefs. His authentic songwriting aims to encourage and lift, a mission that shines through with each vulnerable and hopeful lyric.
With open, sincere lyrics and sensitive vocals, he shares intimate details of his journey with listeners in a way that feels comfortable and familiar.
