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.

Review of "Saints and Sinners:
5 stars By Timothy Yap, Apr 13 2015
Our appreciation of Matt Maher's latest album "Saints and Sinners" heightens when we understand the embodied nuances of the project's title.  Like the unfolding of the proverbial onion, one layer of the album's title refers to the songs' theme of sinners struggling with our foibles in our life-long process of sanctification.  Here you will hear songs about our daily strives situated in the dust and dirt of our everyday bouts and how they come to a crossroads with the life-transforming grace of our Lord Jesus Christ.  Yet, another layer of meaning of the album's title reveals Maher's process in crafting this project.  Finding his muse in the writings of "saints and sinners" of the church's history, such as Mother Theresa and Martin Luther King, the words of many of these songs were inspired by the prayers, devotions and homilies of such saints and sinners.  As a result, there is a treasury of wisdom is embedded in the album's lyrics giving us a thesaurus of Godly vocabulary.When it comes to Matt Maher, you can always count on two things:  here is a literate poet who is well-versed in history, theology and Scripture.  Thus, no Maher song can ever be faulted on its lyrical triteness.  On the other hand, Maher also has a way of taking some of the most learned truths and making them sing and sting to the average person on the street.
