Matt Soverns was born in December of 1993 into a family of mechanical and electrical engineers just north of Indianapolis, Indiana in the small town of Pendleton. The youngest of four boys, his creative nature was chaotic not well understood as a child. At the age of nine, he was expelled from private school for bad behavior, and public school proved to be even more of a challenge. He would find his creative outlet on the stage performing in any capacity for anyone who would watch and listen. Comedy was an easy fit for young Soverns. He would produce small sketch comedy shows throughout his middle school and teenage years drawing inspiration from "Saturday Night Live", "Who's Line is it Anyway", "The Chappelle Show", and a long list of comedy films and stand-up comedy legends like Robin Williams and Jim Carey.
At the age of sixteen, Matt would discover his exceptional talent for hearing harmonics and sound after learning that piano was also an effective way to get on a stage and perform. His piano playing remained a hobby among many for years as he taught himself the fundamentals of songwriting, theory, and technique almost entirely by himself, but he continued to act and sing in plays and musicals as well as DJ on his high school radio station. Upon graduating High school in 2012, Matt moved to Orlando, Florida to pursue a career as a performer at the Walt Disney World Resort. He began by working at the resort in other capacities such as merchandising and bell service, but after a year of auditioning for the company, the pursuit proved to be fruitless. However, Matt unwittingly spent a large amount of time practicing on his digital piano in his small studio apartment, and upon moving back to Indiana was immediately picked up by a saxophone player who started a cover band with him.
Matt would spend the next several years learning a large catalog of cover songs from the twentieth century and beyond. By the spring of 2017, he had begun his career as a dueling pianist and was performing every weekend anywhere he could. Today, Matt continues to perform for audiences around the U.S. He can be seen regularly at the Redhead Piano Bar in Downtown Chicago, the Brick House Dueling Pianos in Indianapolis, and at countless other bars, weddings, fairs, parties, corporate events, and fund raisers. Matt has continued to write original music throughout this time and has made it available for purchase on CD or for free on Spotify, YouTube, Apple Music, and other streaming platforms. 2019 will be a year of transition from the current format to a career as a singer/songwriter and hopes that his unique style of performance blended with music will inspire and heal a hurting world.
