In November 2016, Matt released Up In The Woods, his first studio project in over five years. It’s a collection of contemplative ballads that captures a very formative time in the songwriter’s life and in many ways it symbolizes a fresh start. “Writing has always been a creative outlet for me and a primary part of my life’s development,” Litzinger explains. “However, there was a point when I started to focus more on musical success than being honest in my approach. For a while, I was writing music that didn’t reflect what I was experiencing and it took a long time to get back to writing songs that felt truthful.” The project explores themes of love and hope, while finding its resolution in learning to let go of the past and find joy in things yet to come.

Matt’s newest EP, All These Years, was released on August 17, 2018. It’s a collection of snapshots capturing the different ways love knits our stories together. The project starts with the early spark of two hearts being drawn to each other and ends with a tribute to a life-long commitment. Some of these songs are based on real life and some are imagined, but they all share the common thread of celebrating love in its many forms.
