Los Angeles-based singer/songwriter Matt Bloyd delivers throwback pop influenced by ’80s ballads, ’90s R&B, and gospel-soul, creating a sound similar to OneRepublic or Charlie Puth. From a young age, Bloyd loved singing. This passion eventually led to a commercial music degree from Azusa Pacific University. In addition to collaborations with Postmodern Jukebox, he released a number of covers on YouTube. Often singing with his friends, he crafted stirring renditions of songs from the likes of ZAYN, Shawn Mendes, Ariana Grande, Adele, and the Weeknd. His first set of original music arrived in April 2016. The five-song EP Dying to Survive was released independently and featured the single “Give This Love a Try” with Mia Pfirrman from season 7 of NBC Universal’s The Voice.
