Matt + Mel met in 2010 when Mel first hired Matt as her drummer. The two had  instant chemistry and discussed playing future concerts together. Matt + Mel performed several times over the course of the next two years. Their talent opened the door for them to play such notorious venues as Tennessee’s historic Palace theater and world-famous Cumberland County Playhouse.

Following the music, Mel expanded her  repertoire as she started performing in churches. She quickly brought Matt in to play drums and the duo found a new passion playing worship music together.

Following a year break in lieu of their marriage and the birth of their son, Liam, Matt + Mel have since taken positions as full-time worship leaders at Grace Community Church in Crossville, TN where they lead a team of outstanding musicians who share the same passion for worship.

As time permits, the duo travels around the region to lead worship at various church and house gatherings, and perform at special events with their full band.
