My Silent Bravery (MSB) is Matthew Wade.
Billboard Magazine Discoveries 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 (300 shows in three years), merchandising, and most important, a chockablock collection of winning songs. My Silent Bravery is destined to make major noise.”
To Matthew Wade “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 him overcome a sports injury in his youth that led him to pursue his passion in music. He now feels it’s one of his life mission’s to help inspire others to do the same by delivering his positive message to the masses.
Diamond from Coal is the new and fourth LP from MSB , produced by Anthony Resta (Collective Soul, Guster, Shawn Mullins) & Warren Huart (Aerosmith, The Fray, Augustana ) and was recorded in Boston and Los Angeles. The new single “On My Side” was recently remixed by Grammy award winning Mike Mangini (Joss Stone, David Byrne, Smash Mouth) and Peter Zizzo, (Avril Levine, Jennifer Lopez, Jason Mraz) in New York. The song has already received the runner up placement for the songwriting competition, Song of the Year. The song and accompanying video is a personal thank you from Matthew to all of his fans, friends, and family who have supported him over the years. The first single and video from the new album, entitled “Amazing”, which video features MTV’s The Challenge Star, Cara Maria, was picked up for rotation by MTV.com.
Can’t Quit Deluxe Edition the third LP from MSB was also produced by Resta and features a track with Grammy nominated recording artist, Matisyahu. The Deluxe Edition also features the new remix track, Four Yearz, produced by Kool Kojak (Flo Rida, Kesha, Katy Perry).The album’s three singles, Can’t Quit, To Give (featuring Matisyahu), and Burnt Out (Acoustic) have collectively amassed over 1 million views on youtube with Burnt Out (acoustic) reaching as high as #2 on youtube’s most popular page . (www.youtube.com/mysilentbravery). To Give (featuring Matisyahu) was nominated at the Independent Music Awards 2013 for best Social Action Song. Can’t Quit was nominated for album of the year at Indie Music Digest and the album’s first single and title track also picked up honorable mention for the songwriting competition, Song of the Year.
The Cant Quit release came on the heels of MSB’s first two albums “Uncharted Territory”, “Are You Prepared” and successful placements on the CW’s One Tree Hill, CBS’ People Choice Awards, NBC’s Last Call with Carson Daly, MTV’s Real World and True Life, The Oxygen Network’s Bad Girls Club, the History Channel’s American Pickers and many others. These placements, along with spins on over a combined 500 AAA, A/C and CMJ reporting college radio stations, a top ten hit on the FMQB A/C chart, have helped the band continue to turn heads, make noise and gain local and national supporters alike. Boston Music critic Bill Copeland predicts “MSB may be Boston’s Next Big Thing”. While the UK’s Neil Thomas at Rock and Roll View questions, “Why this artist doesn’t have the backing of a major label yet is quite beyond me.”
Wade continues to keep busy and preserve on his own terms as a do it yourself (DIY) musician by releasing new music independently and touring to support it. Matthew played 300 shows between 2009-2011. In 2012-2014 MSB shared the stage with national acts including Daughtry, Delta Rae, Howie Day, Kris Allen, John Waite, The Wailers, Candlebox, Ryan, Cabrera, Jason Castro, Teddy Geiger, Tyler Hilton, Ed Kowalczyk (Live) and Rusted Root. MSB will be touring with Tyler Ward in August and Anna Nalick this fall.
Matthew Wade is endorsed by Gibson.
