Matt Macleod

Everything and everyone has a unique story, and when shared in song or word, is a powerful expression of who you are.

These words echo the heart of Matt Macleod’s work as a drummer and producer, but more importantly, as a storyteller. Born and raised in Waterloo, Ontario, Matt grew up in a musical household and started drumming before he could walk. In addition to music, he loved telling and hearing stories, and would spend hours memorizing and recounting them to anyone who would listen.


Not much has changed. Today, he continues to nurture his love for music and master his skills as a drummer and producer. His joy and appreciation for storytelling also continues to grow; he loves hearing and sharing life stories with people. The overlap of these two passions – music and story – is at the heart of Matt’s work.


Matt specializes in hip-hop, R&B, modern worship, and spoken word production, though his work as a drummer has extended into jazz, gospel, folk, indigenous, and alternative rock. His musical adventures have brought him across Canada, the United States, and South America, bringing experiences that shaped his story and fuel his mission to make the stories of others heard.
