When he first began creating music from his college dorm room back in 2014, Matt Corman never expected that his first mixtape called Bars Over Bass would take him further in the music industry. Since then, Matt has worked with some of the biggest names in the hip hop scene, toured across the country, and even built his record label.
Matt Corman is one of the most tenacious and promising independent artists of his generation. After the success of his debut, Matt released his second mixtape in 2015 called Speak First. During the same year, the artist became a notorious supporting act for music icons such as Post Malone, Fetty Wap, Sammy Adams, and Cam Meekins. Matt continued to work with some of such artists over the next few years.
In 2016, Matt teamed up with Nicco Catalano, aka Neek. The artist from Los Angeles, California, helped Matt craft and solidify his sound. Furthermore, during the winter of the same year, Matt had the opportunity to work with Sammy Adams again in a sold-out performance held at the House of Blues in Boston, Massachusetts.
Matt Corman was riding the tides of his success after releasing new music month after month. Later on, he joined Fetty Wap on his sold-out performance in the fall of 2017. The event ticked off a new milestone for Matt’s career and marked his name down in history. Because of this, he was hailed as the first alumni to ever perform at Southern New Hampshire University for their Major Homecoming Concert, where he showcased his talent in front of over 3,000 people.
The following year in February, Matt became part of yet another sold-out performance and other select few artists in Boston. Months later, in the same year, Matt released his project called Whiteboards & Windows. Also, in 2018, Matt worked with Aaron Carter on a tour while simultaneously running his business.
Being the dedicated independent artist, Matt Corman pursued building his own label company called MIH Universal. The label is the embodiment of his life slogan, “Make It Happen.” For Matt, MIH is not just a brand but a lifestyle. In return, fans have been raving about his music as they saw his authenticity and contagious personality.
Matt Corman is continually growing his influence in the music scene. He has gained over 20 million streams for his growing catalog and has emerged as a force in the hip hop landscape. This year, Matt is dedicated to releasing a new song every Friday for the rest of 2020. He is looking forward to carrying the practice on to 2021. His songs are currently patronized and used by prominent Youtube personalities on their videos, such as NELK and FaZe Rug.
Matt Corman values being an independent artist above anything else because it gives him the freedom to stay true to his music. “My Make It Happen brand is everything I live for. I didn’t come from money. I never had connections to the industry,” recalled Matt. “I had to figure out a way to “Make It Happen,” even when I didn’t have the resources to do so,” he added.
Nonetheless, Matt Corman built his brand from the ground up despite the lack of funding from big-name music companies. His resourcefulness and determination truly set him apart from the rest of the pack. Asked what he envisions doing in the future, Matt said that he would love to mentor other aspiring artists and be the “beacon of hope they can count on to help get through in tough situations.”
