M4TR is an indie act fusing funk, soul, new wave and conscious lyrics to heal the world in trying times.
The project began after the setback of the 2016 U.S. election with genre-bending songs to speak truth to power.
AJ, M4TR’s chief songwriter, has released several albums, singles and soundtracks that have tallied more than 425,000 streams on over 100 playlists to date.
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 .
Tracks were produced on Logic Pro on Roland and Alchemy synths. Live instruments were added at Wammie award-winning studio Innovation Station Music with guest artists from Spotify’s Soundbetter roster and AJ's musician pals.
From March 2018 to January 2020, AJ formed M4TR’s live band with mates Bob, Blake and Bruce and supported R2RB with the self-dubbed Angry White Men mini-tour - playing 17 rallies and gigs at D.C. metro area venues including DC Pieshop, 7DrumCity's The Pocket, Jammin' Java, Rock and Roll Hotel, Public Bar Live, Ugly Mug, Epicure Cafe and more.
In 2020, M4TR pushes its alt-wave modern sound forward with new singles - Shade of Blue, Monkey God, Echo and Walkout on their World.
m4TR's new phase is called Next. Stay tuned for more releases in 2020 and 2021.
