Who or What
Grayson Matthews is a group of real people making music and sounds with our hands and our hearts. We are songwriters, producers, directors and experimenters, engineers, tech nerds, organizers and overseers. We’re not a band, a firm or an agency, we’re a collective who love music and sound.
What we do.
We create music that tells a story. Sometimes the music is the story and sometimes it helps tell someone else’s story. We make a lot of music for brands. We curate music for picture. We make music for shows. We help artists develop. We score films. We write words. We also create and mix sounds to make pictures come alive. And sometimes we just make stuff for the hell of it. At the end of the day, we make sounds that people want to hear, but more importantly, we make these sounds because we love to hear them.
What We Are Not.
What we are not is an endless supply of musical notes packed on hard drives, then shotgunned out hoping to hit something. We enjoy the process too much to do that. Plus, the world is too noisy already.
What we Believe.
If you make something people want to hear, they’ll stop and listen. It makes them feel something.
We figure the best way to people’s hearts is to get inspired by our own, so we create as a collaborative family. Collaboration’s an approach we’ve held on to for over 17 years. We are creative-minded people who span multiple disciplines, all working on a unified goal in one big, happy space. Together we find new ways to craft and stay relevant in a shifting landscape.
We always strive to bring back respect for the creatives and the creator in a world where music has become a commodity.
Where we do it.
It just so happens we meet in a building at 9:30am each week. And on weekends from time to time. We don’t call it an office (though it has office supplies). It’s more of a playground to us.
Designed by world-renowned architect Martin Pilchner (he’s like the Frank Gehry of sound), our space is as original in its design as the content it crafts. It’s an inspiring place, where a growing dynamic of people work together to develop ideas, and do what we love to do.
