Proudly from Maniwaki (QC), Matt Lang has always wanted to bring Nashville to Québec. In the spring of 2018, Matt was on his way to Nashville to record his first English-language album, and at that time, he didn’t speak a word of English. Produced by Danick Dupelle, a Québec producer who has lived in Nashville for nearly 18 years and a member of the popular group Emerson Drive, the album quickly made its way to No.1 on the national iTunes Country Albums chart for multiple weeks in early 2019. The EP, including popular tracks ‘Love Me Some You’ and ‘My Final Pour’, has performed brilliantly on streaming platforms with total streams exceeding 10 million to date.
In September 2019, Matt won the national SiriusXM Top of the Country competition, three prizes at Québec’s Country Gala, SOCAN’s Country Music Prize and got his first ADISQ nomination for English album of the year. In June 2020, Matt released his second EP ‘More’ under Toronto based record label Jayward Artist Group. Matt and his band opened for Tebey on ‘The Good Ones’ tour in Ontario and Western Canada, and they also performed their first European shows in March of that same year at the prestigious C2C Festival in Berlin. The album also exceeds 10 million combined streams and includes ‘Getcha’ and ‘In a Bar’, both Top 5 radio singles, ‘Only a Woman’ (Top 11) and ‘Water Down the Whiskey’ (Top 20).
Since 2020, Matt performed over 150 live shows to ever-growing crowds and has won English Album of the Year at the Quebec Gala Country. Matt Lang is back on the road in Quebec, where he has just opened for Luke Combs on Plaines d’Abraham in front of more than 80,000 people. He also made a trip to England at the popular Boots and Buckle Festival and several round trips to Nashville where he is working on his next project. While waiting for this new record, Matt launched the duo ‘Never Met a Beer’ with Canadian artist Tyler Joe Miller, making it his 3rd Top 10 on Canadian Country radio. Matt also released ‘Moonlight sessions’, a cover album of his country favorites alongside his own ‘Moonlight’ rum available in all SAQ stores across Quebec.
