Biography

A lifetime of music is the best way to describe my life. . Once I graduated High School, I purchased my first guitar. The first few years I was self taught. I eventually had a great instructor ( Thank you Kenny) and set on the right path. As with all things in life, life got in the way and the guitar was set aside. The desire to play never left. After I was set in my career as a Surgeon, I found myself being drawn back to the guitar. I have had the opportunity to play in multiple cover and original bands in the Richmond, VA area. I have had the opportunity to open for nationally touring bands. I have been blessed to have a new guitar teacher (Thank you Tavis for kicking my butt). Now, I am living in Charlotte NC and after all of this time, I released my first solo album of material, The Bitter Pill, which was released on 2/14/2020. Then the world literally STOPPED!!! It has been a tough year and a half for so many of us. During this time I re-evaluated many things in my life. I got married to my soulmate. I worked the front lines during the pandemic. I lost my mother to Covid. I wrote another album of material and have played all the instruments, recorded and mastered the album. It is very personal to me. Dec 3, 2021 Race to the Finish will be released. I hope you listen and enjoy!!

Press

This work is full of definitive passion, clear insight, and musical vibrancy. The journey that Matt Alter has been on since the release of his first album is extremely apparent in the second. Race to the Finish is a collection of complex stories and hard-hitting musicality, tied together by an explorative, unrestrained rock sound. Stream Race to the Finish for yourself on 12/3/21, or check out the single Work below.” - Ark of Music

The Ark of Music

Now Matt Alter is coming back from more with the upcoming release of his next album Race To The Finish due out on December 5th, 2021. This is truly a solo project as he wrote all the songs and played all the instruments on the 10 track record. To show he is not aiming for a standard album, Matt opens with the 12 minute title track “Race To The Finish.” A wide assortment of distorted sounds and dark lyrics paint a picture to build the album around. Progressive rock influences can be heard.” - Keith Pro

The introspective alt rock single, “Call Me,” from North Carolina musician and surgeon Matt Alter has an almost impossible-to-ignore vibe. The track is Alter’s first single from his commendable debut album, The Bitter Pill.”
