NBC writes that Matt McAdnrew has been playing the guitar and singing since he was a young boy.

Throughout high school, McAndrew was very passionate about art and he was in AP studio art classes. He says that his style was always abstract and he was actually surprised that people liked his artwork. He says he was also always the class clown and used humor as a defense mechanism. He was also a skateboarder growing up. He feels his humor is what actually got him involved in music. In his junior year of high school, he started writing funny little songs about one of his friends named Dwight and the rest is history.
