Did you know that the man, the myth, the legend, our own Matthew Hollingsworth composed music that’s airing on PBS as we speak?!

Yes, it’s true!!
The Morning Still: a one man band. For those of you who don’t yet know, The Morning Still is the moniker used when Matthew releases contemporary classical piano albums (that yes, are all-original and composed, recorded, and produced right here in Janesville, Wisconsin!).

Big news, BIG NEWS!!
Matthew has launched an online composing business and I’m happy to report that Matt is doing well as a freelance independent composer!! He’s been working hard in the studio and composing for commercials (like Revlon) and films!! And right now, as we speak, PBS is airing a piece entitled Dave’s Story. So when there’s a break in programming and PBS plays a story about an Iraq veteran named Dave who talks about how important PBS is to him, that’s Matt’s music throughout, airing nationally at present. How exciting is THAT?!

Check out his website HERE.

Another development: Matt has brought me on the team – Hannah, his wife and detail-keeping sidekick! I’m excited to keep you up to date on all the (very) exciting things he’s working on helping out with all this stuff.

Thanks for supporting Matt and his music, you will just freak out in the coming weeks when I tell you more stuff we’re up to. Til then, cheers!!
