Meet the Artist

Matt Maher

Matt Maher was born and raised in Newfoundland, Canada. His parents recognised his musical talent from an early age, and he grew up taking piano lessons and immersing himself in a broad variety of music, playing in concert and jazz ensembles, singing in a choir, and playing in a garage rock band.

Maher started his post-secondary studies at Memorial University of Newfoundland, but soon after received a scholarship from the Jazz Department at Arizona State University, so he moved to Phoenix, Arizona where he studied jazz piano and earned a music degree.

While attending church in Arizona, Matt was approached by the youth pastor and the music director to help out. "They both saw something in me that I didn't see, and I know it was God leading me closer to Him. Within two months, I was led to accept what Christ did for me on the cross, and to respond in serving Him in my new church community."

Three of Maher's albums have reached the Top 25 Christian Albums Billboard chart and four of his singles have reached the Top 25 Christian Songs chart. Maher is based in Nashville, Tennessee and travels as a "Musical Missionary". He is still involved in local church ministry at St Timothy Catholic Community, as well as helping out with the young adult ministry at All Saints Newman Center, on the campus of Arizona State University.

Besides serving with organisations like Worshiptogether.com, Spiritandsong.com, Passion, Youth Specialties, and Adore Ministries, Matt is a contributing artist for Life Teen, a high school youth movement that helped lead him to Jesus, and his songs are being sung by the church around the world including the song "Your Grace is Enough", originally recorded by Chris Tomlin.

4 stars By Timothy Yap, Oct 24 2017
Matt Maher doesn't write in a vacuum.  While many of his peers do not invest too much time in crafting their lyrics, Maher makes sure his words connect both the church's past and present. Every song he writes resonates with echoes of lines from the church's hymnody or the allusions of Scripture. With the confluence of both the new and the familiar, Maher's compositions have a way of gaining immediate traction with worshippers.  They are refreshingly contemporary as well as nostalgically familiar.    Utilizing the same winsome template for album #6, one doesn't have to be a prophet or the son of prophet to know that many of these songs here will become favorites of copious church goers.

Easily in the queue for being a future worship classic is "Your Love Defends Me."  If you get the deluxe version of this disc, you will be blessed with the piano version of this album's lead single.  Though the song has a grandiose hymn-like structure written for the church to worship along, but Maher's cadence and nuances are so personal (especially on the solo piano version) that you feel like he has read our diaries and is echoing our fears and uncertainties before our sovereign God. Likewise, "Won't Let Me Down" also makes us drop everything and worship along too.
