GuestPost – My Silent Bravery
Billboard Magazine states, “My Silent Bravery plays like a major label signing, from its production savvy, eloquent lyrics, authoritative imaging, polished web site, a dedicated Northeast U.S. fan following, merchandising, and most importantly, a chockablock collection of winning songs. My Silent Bravery is destined to make major noise.”
My Silent Bravery symbolizes persistence, perseverance, and inner strength to overcome obstacles in the face of adversity. It is this type of determination that helped Matthew Wade of My Silent Bravery overcome a sports injury in his youth which led him to pursue his passion for music.
The injury opened the door to spirituality and a higher calling. Through personal work and transformation, he learned the importance of “paying it forward” and now feels one of his missions in life is to help inspire others to do the same by delivering his positive message to the masses through the music of My Silent Bravery.
MSB has released seven albums since 2007, with music featured in tv shows like Criminal Minds, One Tree Hill, MTV’s Real World, American Pickers, among many others.
These placements, along with three Billboard hit singles, have helped the band continue to turn heads, make noise and gain local and national supporters alike. “Got it Going On,” the band’s biggest song to date, topped the Billboard Hot Singles Sales Chart remaining at #1 for ten straight weeks, while it simultaneously hit five other Billboard charts. The Huffington Post’s Jon Chatman states, “While he’s drawn comparisons to John Mayer and Gavin DeGraw, A-Sides thinks he can stand on his own sans any labels or similar-sounding artist references. In other words, his music, like his name, is unique and stands on its own in a bold way.”
Matthew has continued his DIY approach and released music independently under his label, MWS Records, without major label backing.
MSB has played 1,000 live shows, including several international tours, and has shared the stage with national acts including Bryan Adams, Billy Idol, Daughtry, John Waite, The Wailers, Candlebox, Rusted Root, among many others.
MSB continues to grow its “Braveheart” fan base organically through touring and its growing social media presence, which now reaches over a quarter million fans across multiple social networks including Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and its YouTube channel has featured several trending singles which have collectively accumulated over 8,000,000 views. Paste Magazine recently stated, “My Silent Bravery may be the best-undiscovered artist around.”
My Silent Bravery is endorsed by Gibson.
