Like Apple, Amazon, Disney and Google, Matt Wallace started out
in the garage. His parents' garage, to be exact, is where he built
an eight-track recording studio. There he produced recordings for
local musicians, including a few who would go on to form Faith No
In time, Matt
would produce some of Faith No More's most iconic recordings. He
produced and mixed "We Care A Lot," their debut album
on Mordam Records. He produced and mixed their breakthrough album
on Slash Records, "The Real Thing," which featured the
hit song, "Epic." He produced "Angel Dust,"
which - a decade later - Kerrang! would name the #1 most influential
album of all time. In 2015, roughly 23 years later, he teamed up
with the band again to co-mix their newest album, "Sol Invictus"
which debuted at #1 on the Billboard Hard Rock Album charts.
produced critically acclaimed albums for The Replacements ("Don't
Tell A Soul"), Paul Westerberg ("14 Songs") and John
Hiatt ("Perfectly Good Guitar"). He co-produced the debut
album for Canadian singer-songwriter Chantal Kreviazuk which was
certified 2x platinum in Canada, and was nominated for a Juno.
1994 he and a friend, David Konjoyan, conceived and produced "If
I Were A Carpenter" - an album paying tribute to the music
of the Carpenters. The project featured performances by Sheryl Crow,
Sonic Youth, The Cranberries and others and had a second life when
used in the movie "Juno" (Sonic Youth's version of "Superstar").
2002, Matt had to choose between working with two artists. One was
an established band, the other group had recently been dropped from
Warner Bros., and had become the first signing to a brand new label.
Matt followed his gut: he passed on the established act, and signed
on to produce the underdog. That band was Maroon 5, and their debut
album, produced and mixed by Matt, spawned 4 Top 40 singles and
went on to sell over 10 million copies worldwide.
Since then, Matt
has continued to work with a wide variety of artists. He co-wrote
songs with, and produced two albums for O.A.R. He co-wrote and produced
tracks for Andy Grammer. He produced for an album for Pepper and
mixed an album for Blackberry Smoke. He's currently producing a
new album for 3 Doors Down.
