matthew christopher davidson is a songwriter, composer and spoken word poet. he is also ‘me’. and I hate third-person autobiographical writing.
hi, I’m matthew christopher davidson! aka ‘matthew’. aka ‘mcd’. whatever you like.
I was raised in victoria bc. I have lived there for most of my life. I moved to three hills, alberta for a short time(aka ‘/\/\/\’), but it was a mistake, and I will never repeat it.
I grew up surrounded by a glorious cloud of music and silence. as a child I was exposed to a lot of sacred music. if you have never listened to the music of palestrina, you should go and listen to this right now. this is the music I remember when I think of my childhood.
I write music because there is noise inside my head, and I want to know whether it can become something beautiful. I write poetry because my head is full of seemingly disconnected words, and I want to know if they can become something that makes sense.
so, yeah. that’s me.
