Matthew Decker is a recording artist from New York. He started his own label Matteo Mafia Records in 2012. His music is very different from today's popular music, with a vintage 1960s style aesthetic, combined with modern day pop, hip-hop, and trap.

Hi, my name is Matthew Decker. I'm a singer songwriter from upstate New York. Imagery is one of the best mediums out there. You can do so much with it. I really like to paint a picture with my music in the listener's mind, to get that sound, to get that feeling you get when you hear a really good song and to relate to it, is what I want everybody to hear. I've been doing music for a very long time. It's been very hard and I think that more I make my music sound better and have a better picture using imagery, I think that it will take off and good things will come. I really like old Hollywood and I use soundbites and clips in my videos and music from that. Imagery, it'll set the whole entire scene and it'll make everything or break everything.
