New Music From Matthew John “Shines”


Coming from a deeply personal experience, “Shine For Me,” by Matthew John, connects with audiences in both an emotional and spiritual way. Drawing upon the loss of both his grandfather in 2013 and father in 2016, Matthew John reminds us all that our loved ones are never really gone.

Starting his songwriting career at an early age in middle school, Matthew wrote hundreds of songs before deciding to pursue music full time. After high school, while his grandfather was battling Alzheimer’s, he decided to record a few of these songs. Music was important to his grandfather and Matthew used it to connect with him. Hardships and losses only made him more determined.

“My music was a great outlet for me,” Matthew John shares, “as I could write about my thoughts and feelings.” His creative songwriting offers audiences encouragement. “I hope audiences will gain a sense of hope in my music,” he continues. “My songs are upbeat and offer hope for tomorrow and a never give up attitude.”

Matthew John’s EP, including his single “Shine For Me,” will be released on April 20th and can be found everywhere music is sold including iTunes and Amazon. You can learn more about Lamon Records at and stay up to date on Matthew John at
