Matt's reputation as an engineer and mixer sometimes obscures the
fact that he is also a capable musician. Matt has performed on many
of the albums he's produced, though he rarely seeks credit for such
work because he feels it is part of his role as producer. Matt sang
backup vocals on albums by Faith No More, The Replacements, H20,
Sugarcult, Flybanger, Khaleel, and others. He played drums on The
Replacements' "Don't Tell A Soul" and on Paul Westerberg's
"14 Songs". He played guitar on recordings by John Hiatt,
Sheryl Crow, Bic Runga and numerous others. Matt has played percussion
on many of his productions and even on quite a few of his mixes
produced, engineered & mixed Faith No More's "Angel Dust"
- which was listed in Kerrang magazine as the #1 Most Influential
Album of all Time (May 2003).
Wallace's career in music started as a musician, playing and singing
original songs in various Bay Area bands. Although he never achieved
fame as a musician, singer or writer, the experience gave Matt the
understanding to help bands with arrangements and chord choices
as well as occasional co-writes.
All this is
to say that, in addition to being an accomplished engineer and mixer,
Matt is a very musical producer who has a keen ear for songs and
Credits: Matt is currently
producing Caleb Kane's forthcoming album. He just finished producing
Kyle Riabko's forthcoming EP and will soon be working on his full
length album. Maroon 5's Songs About Jane (P-E-M) has gone platinum!
