UArts has taught me, above all else, how to make lasting connections.
Matthew Glosson is a recording engineer, audio electronics engineer and drummer. Matthew was born in Philadelphia, but he grew up primarily in Raleigh, North Carolina. From the age of 12, he began taking drum lessons and quickly gravitated toward the technical aspects of music recording and production. After meeting local engineer and musician Chris Boerner, Matthew had his first opportunity to experience the process of recording on a professional level and decided that recording was what he wanted to pursue full time. Since beginning the MBET program, he has had several great experiences in the industry thanks to what he has learned at UArts. During the summer of 2018, Matthew was an assistant engineer on Grammy-nominated songwriter/artist Kevin Garrett’s debut album, Hoax. During this process, he was also able to work with Bon Iver's drummer, Matt McCaughan, and prominent indie producer Brad Cook. Over the past two summers, he has toured across the country with the distinguished Raleigh band Chatham County Line doing live sound. Matthew also completed an internship with audio gear manufacturer D.W. Fearn/Hazelrigg Industries, where he will be working this year. Matthew spends much of his time recording Laybrum, his fellow MBET student Andrew Santora's band, as well as building and tinkering with audio gear.
