Hey, I’m Matthew, drummer for Northern Rain. I started playing the drums around the age of 7 when my parents brought home a kids drum set from the Cloverdale Flee Market. Their friends thought they were crazy! But I really enjoyed playing on them and convinced my family to get me a full drum kit. I love playing on the drums and am having lots of fun writing songs, whether it’s while I’m camping or trying to fall asleep at night. My musical influences are varied to all types of music and I really enjoy listening to anything from A Day to Remember, Escape the Fate, Blink 182 and Hedley. I love playing ice hockey and ball hockey, but nothing compares to playing a gig with my friends in the band.
