Matthew Myers grew up studying classical piano and composing music at a young age. He composed music for freeware video games as a student / hobbyist as well as sang and performed in rock bands throughout high school and college. Matt landed his first full-time job as a composer with Sonivox in 2006 and continued building his music career ever since.

Currently Matt is recognized as one of the most prolific composers in the western visual novel industry, with music credits in numerous releases for Winter Wolves Games and Hanako Games. He’s also worked on several award-winning apps for PHD Gaming, as well as with video game industry leaders like Ubisoft, Square-Enix, GarageGames and Video Games Live. To fans he might be most well-known as the lead singer and songwriter for “otaku” band LeetStreet Boys, with popular animated music videos surpassing 4 million views on YouTube and performing at numerous anime conventions across North America. Matt also recently co-developed “Uni Lets You Play IT Safe,” a corporate personification campaign for Boston-based backup and disaster recovery firm Unitrends, and produced the primary animated commercial for its launch.
