SONGWRITING SAVED MY LIFE

THROUGHOUT THE LAST 30 YEARS OF ACTIVE ADDICTION AND ACTIVE RECOVERY- MATHEW HAS BEEN BLESSED TO PROLIFICALLY WRITE SONGS AS A POWERFUL HEALING THERAPY AND TRANSCENDENTAL FORM OF SELF EXPRESSION. WRITING SONGS HAS ALLOWED MATHEW TO CONSTANTLY BE CO-CREATING AND TRANSMUTING ALL OF HIS PAINFUL DRUG INDUCED EXPERIENCES AND ANCESTRAL SHADOWS- INTO DIVINE MUSIC-MELODY-MOOD AND MESSAGE. OVER THE YEARS MATHEW HAS WRITTEN ENDLESS TUNES AND LYRICS AND BEING SO PROLIFIC HAS DEFINITELY HELPED HIM STAY FREE FROM LONG TERM PRISON SENTENCES-PSYCHIATRIC HOSPITALS AND OF COURSE-DEATH ITSELF. EVEN WHEN MATHEW DID FACE DEATH THROUGH HIS ADDICTIONS- IT WAS HIS BELOVED SONGWRITING THAT GOT HIM THROUGH THE RECOVERY PROCESS TO BREATHE IN ANOTHER DAY. 

SONGS AND SONGWRITERS ARE SUCH IMPORTANT THINGS AND FIGURES IN OUR SACRED HISTORY-PAST-PRESENT AND FUTURE. SONGS HAVE ALWAYS BEEN USED IN ANCIENT TRIBAL HEALING-WORSHIP AND STORYTELLING AND IT IS PART OF MY SOUL PURPOSE TO REMIND PEOPLE JUST HOW POWERFUL AND IMPORTANT THE ART AND CRAFT OF SONGWRITING TRULY IS. SONGS CAN HEAL-INSPIRE-TRANSCEND-NURTURE AND HAVE PERSONALLY PROVIDED ME WITH COMPANIONSHIP AND FRIENDSHIP WHEN I EXISTED IN DARKNESS AND HAD NOBODY TO CALL A FRIEND OR NOWHERE TO CALL HOME. 

THIRD EYE PHONE RECORDS

THIRD EYE PHONE RECORDS WAS BORN OUT OF MATHEW'S CONTINUAL USE OF IPHONE TO RECORD SONGS AND SONG IDEAS QUICKLY AND EASILY. BEING PROLIFIC MEANS MATHEW NEEDS ACCESS TO AN AUDIO RECORDER AT ALL TIMES AND NATURALLY, THE VOICE RECORDER ON AN IPHONE BECAME MATHEW'S GO TO SOLUTION. THROUGHOUT DAILY LIFE WHETHER AT WORK -OR OUT AND ABOUT- MATHEW IS CONSTANTLY NIPPING DOWN ALLEYWAYS AND INTO BATHROOMS TO DISCRETELY GET DOWN A NEW MELODY-LYRIC OR IDEA. 

THE GENERAL PUBLIC ARE ALWAYS OBLIVIOUS TO MY METHODS-AND I LOVE THIS SECRET WORLD OF THE PROLIFIC SONGWRITER. SO I CREATED MY OWN RECORD LABEL TO HONOUR THIS ONE STOP SOLUTION TO RECORDING AND RELEASING SONGS. RETURNING TO THE ORIGINAL PROCESS OF LIVE RECORDING IS REVOLUTIONARY IN ITSELF FOR MATHEW AND MAKES THE RECORD MAKING PROCESS QUICK AND EASY-JUST AS MATHEW HAD STARTED OUT DOING IN THE EARLY 1990S IN HIS PARENTS BATHROOM ON A TASCAM PORTASTUDIO.

THIRD EYE PHONE RECORDS IS MY LABEL AND METHOD FOR RELEASING MY SONGS BECAUSE I HAVE WAY TOO MANY SONGS FOR PLANNED RELEASE. TO GIVE EACH SONG A FULL ORCHESTRATION ARRANGEMENT AND VOCAL PRODUCTION ARRANGEMENT, WOULD BE FAR TOO TIME CONSUMING AND VERY EXPENSIVE AT THIS POINT IN TIME. SO THE D.I.Y- LIVE- LO-FI APPROACH OF MY YOUTH IS THE ONLY PATH FOR ME IF I'M TO SHARE MY CHANNEL OF PROLIFIC SACRED SONG STREAMS WITH THE WORLD.
