I'm AJ and M4TR stands for Music 4 The Revolution. M4TR is a retro-future dance-rock act fusing funky new wave synth-pop with rebellious flare.


I'm a multi-instrumentalist songwriter and I've released albums and singles over the years that have tallied more than 150,000 listeners and 1,000,000 streams on Spotify, Soundcloud and YouTube on over 150 playlists.


In 2018, M4TR released the soul-funk-punk EP Eightysixfortyfive followed by debut LP Rock to Resist By, featuring singles Callout to the Nation, Never Act Your Age, Lady Worth Fighting For, We Better Take It from Here, and Boy. I write and arrange on Logic Pro with Roland, Alchemy, Output and Spectrasonic synths. R2RB was mixed and engineered at Innovation Station with Soundbetter artists and M4TR's live band.


From 2018 to 2020, M4TR’s first live band supported R2RB with the Angry White Men mini-tour - playing 17 rallies and gigs at Washington DC metro area venues including DC Pieshop, 7DrumCity’s The Pocket, Jammin' Java, Rock and Roll Hotel, Public Bar Live, Epicure Cafe and more.


R2RB was re-released in 2020 with singles Shade of Blue, Monkey God, Echo, and Walkout on Their World.
During COVID, M4TR released singles In It to Win It, Clean, Colorblind, the Cancel Culture EP, The Bitter End and home produced an under-lockdown LP titled Next.

 

I'm busy writing M4TR's third and fourth albums, Love Is The Revolution and Solarpunk.
