Matthew Greenidge was born in Trinidad on the 14th August 1984. Naturally, he says, he always loved music however, he never thought about becoming a singer/song writer until 2010. Because of the strong influence music had on him and those around him, he used his inspirations from God, his environment, things that he have been through, things that he have witnessed other people go through and the power of love to pen tunes. Added to this, his uncle Arthur, very well known in the community for singing reggae motivated him to explore the genre and he sites other major influences such as Bob Marley, Glen Washington, Gregory Isaac and as he got older, his cousin Rincher, taught him a lot about writing and singing reggae.
This young firebrand plans to keep singing positive music using it as a vehicle to reach, teach and inspire the younger generations in a way that can impact upon them. In the future Matthew sees himself continuing to deliver great songs, touring and opening hopefully his own studio. Overall he seeks to maintain his humble beginnings and use the many blessings and opportunities rendered unto him to keep working on his craft while gaining more and more musical experience.
It's important for him, however, to be comfortable at the studio where he is working at. In 2011, he linked up with label, JahLight Records. That same year they recorded Matthew's first professionally recorded song entitled, 'Burn to Learn', on JahLight's heavy, 'Passover Riddim', which also featured his cousin Rincher. The following year JahLight Records' manager, recognizing his potential suggested to Matthew that they should work on an official album together and quickly they got to work.
In 2013, this combined effort will bring forth Matthew Greenidge's debut album. However, before its official release the masses heard songs like 'Get Your Loving' by PengCo Music and 'Bob Marley' by JahLight Records; the latter especially serving as a strong introduction to the artist.
Matthew Greenidge can be described as a talented artist with a lot of conviction about what he does. He is professional. He is the type of artist that is humble and willing to put in the time, effort and finances to get things done. He will go the extra mile for his music; a very attentive and hardworking individual. Those are some of the things that really caught our attention with the artist. We at JahLight Records strongly believe that he will make a great addition to the Reggae fraternity, says JahLight Records' manager, Akeunde Pemberton. The world can be sure that there is a new reggae messenger coming their way and his name is Matthew Greenidge.
