Writing songs has always been a part of my life, something that I’ve done naturally. (Though those songs I wrote in high school were naturally, pretty bad). I write songs to make sense of myself and the world around me, and my hope is that they can do the same for you. These songs are full of stories that travel through the themes of love, heartbreak, doubt, faith, and hope. 

My name is Matt Oakes and I’m a songwriter from North Texas. Look for my new album “Foreign Season” coming Summer 2018.
