Matthew Wade of My Silent Bravery credits neck injury for his current direction in life.
Matthew Wade just released a single, “P.O.V.” from his Diamond From Coal the Remixes album. However, he never imagined music being his career until suffering a herniated disc at age 21. The injury made him realize that life is short, so he should go out and pursue his dream of being a musician.
“This injury is what sort of pushed me to do music,” Wade said.
From 2009- 2012, Wade did 300 shows. He took the injury as a sign, and completely went towards his dream. He believes that music is what he was put on Earth to do. The Boston native has accumulated quite a fan base in recent years.
“I really want people to have an experience while listening,” Wade said. “I want them to feel uplifted and help them overcome whatever they’re going through.”
He has managed to get through to his fans in an emotional way and that is a big reason why he is steadily becoming a bigger name. He wants to get to his fans so much that he decided to switch up his style for his Diamond From Coal the Remixes album. He took songs from the Diamond From Coal album and remade them to be more upbeat and adapt to different environments for his listeners.
He chose the song “P.O.V.” to be his single because he wanted people to listen to the songs on the new album from a fresh point of view. Fitting.
“It has to do with people’s mood,” Wade said. “Diamond From Coal was originally a rock/pop album, but I wanted to changed the music for audiences in all environments.”
Wade’s main goal was for his fans to be able to take him anywhere. He explained that with his current style, people would not listen to his songs in the gym. He wanted something they could use for whichever type of mood they are in.
