Matt Lande grew up in a small Florida town. He found his first ticket out slinging a guitar for the band StorySide: B. Lande co-wrote the title track to the band’s first album, Everything and More, which was a hit on the Christian charts.
Searching for a more expansive direction for his music, Lande followed his dream to Los Angeles where he signed an indie deal and released his Stories From Yesterday LP in 2010, under the band name Heaven Is Where. Quickly realizing this was the wrong name for a non-Christian rock band, Lande began performing his material under his own name; releasing the Welcome Home Child LP in 2012 and the acoustic EP DarkStar, later that year.
At the end of 2014 two of Lande’s close friends passed away from cancer within a couple months of each other. Overwhelmed by the avalanche of emotional trauma, Lande turned to his music as an outlet for his turmoil. The cathartic songs that followed would become his newest album Glow; a collection of emotive alt-pop.
