Manage episode 346292811 series 3407239
Normally I do this show in Dutch, but today is a very special day. Because Today I have my first international guest. And that guest is the one and only singer-songwriter Matt Simons.
Matt is an artist/musician who moved to New York to pursue a career in jazz Music.
He started studying jazz and started playing many different kind of gigs. And then one random day, he was playing a gig in a small venue in the Netherlands, and there a producer of a Dutch TV Show called 'Goede tijden slechte tijden' heard one of his songs. And that moment, basically changed his entire life. After that, he started getting an audience in Holland and started playing his very own shows. Well and that, turned out to be only the beginning…
Because a few years later, when he released a song called Catch & Release everything went crazy. The song got picked up all around Europe, spread further globally and eventually became a Number one hit in many countries.
So In just a few years time, Matt turned from being a talented unknown Jazz musician to a well known Pop Artist that is playing in front of thousands of people who sing along his songs.
Another proof that everything big starts with something Small.
In this podcast we look back on the world tour of the last months and we talk about Matt’s special breakthrough story, having a worldwide number one hit, songwriting, social media, insecurities and much more.
