M4TR = Music 4 The Revolution. Retro-future dance rock with rebellious flair. We play songs about evolution, revolution and devolution. We sing songs about activism, narcissism, technology, trolls, billionaires, monkeys, fish, mermaids, nature, earth, ghosts, stalkers, youth, death, nuclear war, madness, futbol and, above all, love. We play cool covers because we aspire to be tasteful thieves like Bowie. We play happy-sad songs. We are the retro-future. 


AJ Hutchins, M4TR's founding member and principal songwriter, has released original songs, albums, soundtracks, covers and singles that have tallied more than 1,800,000 streams on Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon, Soundcloud, YouTube, TikTok on over 900 playlists. M4TR songs have 735,000 cross-platform streams to date.


The current live crew - Rich Andrews (bass), Laura Cook (vox/percussion), Mark Davenport (vox/guitars), Owen Williams (drums/brass) and AJ (vox/synths/acoustic guitar) - met jamming in band showcases in 7DrumCity's Flashband community in and around the Washington, DC area, playing on stages like Jammin Java, Union Stage, Pearl Street Warehouse, Public Bar Live, Songbyrd Cafe, DC Pieshop and more.


AJ is busy writing new dance-rock material for M4TR’s upcoming phase/album, Love Is The Revolution.
