Chattanooga, Tennessee is proving to be quite the goldmine and home for some of the rawest underground musical talent. Often times, smaller cities and acts are overlooked due to a lack of exposure. Fortunately, for artists as well as the ears of consumers the internet has made it more likely than not that any artist with the “It factor” can gain much wider recognition with the right content, promotion, and let’s face it just raw talent in general.
Matt Movin’ has the aforementioned “It factor” and his road to success has been nothing short of nearly impossible.
Raised in a primarily single-parent household in the city of Chattanooga, Tennessee. Long had a tumultuous upbringing and has often been arrested for multiple violent and drug-related crimes, but not before falling in love with music at the age of just 6 years old. Music affects us all in different ways.
For Matt, it was an escape from the harsh realities of life. His most recent video “All Pressure no let-up” has already amassed over 15 thousand views on YouTube and growing! It’s noted on his website that Matt Movin is known more than anything for his brutally honest “confessional masterpieces” that equip an autobiographical depiction with melodic yet southern productions.
It has been noted by several Critics including Chattanooga’s own Marc Michael, that he combines gritty street rap with an “angelic tuneful touch,” and I am a full agreement with Mr. Michael there’s a raspy, scratchy, and overall unique delivery that stamps the authenticity of his flow and delivery.
His topics often deal with subjects such as poverty, heartbreak, incarceration, depression, pain, & substance abuse. Don’t let this fool you though, the guy can make a hit banger for the airwaves with ease! The upcoming Album “Movin Be Movin” is set to release Saturday 11/23/19 on all major media distribution platforms.
