Matt Murphy is a songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist from Salt Lake City, UT. He wrote his first song at 6, started his first band at 10, and has been chasing perfection of his craft ever since. Matt fronts the alt-rock band RKDN, who recently released an EP debuting at #10 on iTunes Alternative charts, and #36 on Billboard. Matt has worked with A-listers Timbaland and Poo Bear (Justin Bieber, Lady Gaga) on multiple tracks, has contributed directly to NBA, MLS and ESPN ad campaigns, and has co-written with multiple up and coming major label artists and producers.
Running a studio out of a beautifully remodeled racquet ball court in a rural suburb of Utah, Matt translates his love for modern arrangement within the roots and natural flow of his surroundings. Working between his Utah studio, LA, and London, Matt’s travels can undeniably be heard through his music. When not working, Matt is usually at the movies. He is a self-defined Star Wars fanatic, an avid Chelsea FC supporter, and snowboarder. Matt’s favorite artists are Coldplay, Harry Styles, and of course, The Beatles.
