Flew into a Shadow
Hello to all my music people! I am Matthew Fiock and an Independent Singer/songwriter that loves playing Reggae, Island, Rock with a slight European mix on it. All this written and played to an Ukulele and when I can with a band. Give it a listen! I grew up in the Great Northwest and now I am residing in the BIG state of Texas. At a young age I became deaf due to inner ear infections and lost my hearing all together. At the age of 5 years I regained my hearing after trying to learn sign language and I started the adjustments of living in a very loud world! In the duration of those silent years I fell in love with the vibrations through the floor making up the music I know and love today. I also grew up around a few pockets of Pacific Islanders (Hawaiians, Samoans, etc.) and I became fascinated with Ukuleles, but that didn't take place till later. I was into rock first, but then later came Reggae and Islander influences that were around me taking hold and didn't let go! I have written and performed a Reggae, Island and Rock mix for 7-8 years and haven't looked back. My vibes and style are a little different feel than what one could expect, but it usually isn't a negative response when I get feedback. I am getting invites to venues that only a solo singer/songwriter only fantasizes about. Doing something right! Enjoy difference with an Uke! Happy Uke'in!
