Who is Matthew Schuler?
Matthew Schuler was born outside of Philadelphia in Bucks County Pennsylvania to Pastors Donald and Dawn Schuler. During his second semester at West Chester University, Matthew took the first steps towards pursing his dream as an artist by auditioning for NBC’s Emmy award-winning competition reality series The Voice.
During Matthew’s blind audition he broke the record for the fastest 4-chair turn in The Voice history, which is ultimately led to joining team Christina Aguilera. His time on The Voice was hailed by performances of iconic songs from Cosmic Love by Florence and The Machine and Miley Cyrus's Wrecking Ball, One Direction's Story of my Life, and most notably his rendition of Leonard Cohen's Hallelujah which hit number one on the iTunes Charts and #40 on the Billboard Charts for several weeks. He was later referenced as one of the best blind auditions of all time by coach Christina Aguilera in a recap of the best moments in the past 10 seasons.
Soon after his departure off The Voice, Matthew performed in a sold-out show in front of thousands, for Jamaica’s Shaggy and Friends Music Festival that helps raise funds for the Bustamante Children’s Hospital, alongside acts such as Ne-Yo and Sean Paul. Matthew also collaborated with Shaggy on a track called Lovin You, which had a limited release only in the Caribbean. Matthew has done corporate performances for major Fortune 500 companies, performed at German military base for the U.S. Armed Services, opened for Diana Ross at a private event, and donated his time and talent to organizations such as the Make a Wish foundation. Matthew has been a part of two major films, and been on the soundtrack for one other. Matthew is currently preparing for The Voice Neon Dreams, a live interactive show in Las Vegas with former cast members from past seasons of The Voice.
His highly-anticipated debut EP Baby Steps, is set to release on January 26th
