M4TR is an indie pop-rock artist fusing high-energy funk, soul, new wave, razor-sharp lyrics, and social commentary to raise human hopes in trying times.
The project began after the setback of the 2016 U.S. election with genre-bending songs that speak truth to power. AJ, M4TR’s multi-instrumentalist songwriter, has released albums and singles that have tallied more than 950,000 streams on over 125 playlists.
In 2018, M4TR released the soul-funk-punk EP Eightysixfortyfive followed by debut LP Rock to Resist By , featuring singles Callout to the Nation , Never Act Your Age, Lady Worth Fighting For , We Better Take It from Here and Boy .
Tracks were produced on Logic Pro with Roland Juno and Alchemy synths. Live instruments were added at Wammie award-winning studio Innovation Station Music with Soundbetter guest artists and AJ's musician pals.
From 2018 to 2020, AJ formed M4TR’s first live band with mates Bob, Blake and Bruce and supported R2RB with the Angry White Men mini-tour - playing 17 rallies and gigs at Washington DC metro area venues including DC Pieshop, 7DrumCity's The Pocket, Jammin' Java, Rock and Roll Hotel, Public Bar Live, Ugly Mug, Epicure Cafe and more.
M4TR’s latest phase is called Next, with the release of singles Shade of Blue , Monkey God , Echo , Walkout on Their World , In It to Win It , Clean, Colorblind and Cancel Culture. Look for an EP and LP in 2021.
