“We absolutely love Music Matters and what it does to help young people get a start in the entertainment industry today. Music Matters and the team behind the scenes do an amazing job nurturing and supporting the artist’s development and they play an integral role in harnessing  so many young peoples’ passion, energy and talent, to channel it into something tangible, so they can see and pursue a real future in the industry. Wish Music Matters was around when we were starting out!” Lee Bowman – JETTY ROAD
