AIN'T NO SUNSHINE

JESSE CAMPBELL

THIS IS RAY BROWN JR.

RAY BROWN JR.

Jaijai, what a wonderful mission you've undertaken to create such a place for artistic minds to meet and share their hearts. A place to renew faded determinations, and revive lessened momentums. A place to display our wares and reconfirm to one another that we actually are on the right track.

I commend you, Jaijai, for caring so much that you created this castle of the heart for all of us. I want to share my praise for all of the new friends as well as old friends that I've met and will meet here in our castle. Here we can garnish the where-with-all, the strength, the conviction, and the selflessness through our symbiosis, to share our gift to the world with an unbiased agenda.

My mentor, Daisaku Ikeda says of art: "A beautiful flower delights and refreshes the hearts of all people equally, no matter what soil it grows in. That is the power of beauty. The same is true of great art. It is this spirit that the German poet Heinrich Heine sang of when he wrote that once the peapod bursts open, the sugar peas inside are for everyone to enjoy."

Let's be audacious, my friends!

Tell us a little about your background...
Matt Cusson has people talking.

He's a star in the making, a singer/songwriter, with a Voice- sexy, soulful, rich and poetic. He can play anything from the classics to his own originals and blow listeners away.

Those are just a few things being said about Matt. People are not only singing the praises of this incredible young musician, but are quickly becoming devoted fans, ready to tell everyone they know about Matt.

Thousands of fans waited breathlessly for Matt's debut solo CD, which was just released December of '08, showcasing Matt's incredible songwriting ability, stunning arrangements, tremendous vocals and ability as both an artist and arranger/producer. This album is receiving fanfare and recognition from fans all around the world, along with fellow musicians and talented artists! It holds true for people like James Taylor, Brian McKnight, "Today" host Meredith Vierra and "American Idol" judge Randy Jackson – all of whom say the same thing: Matt Cusson is an extraordinary musician, a remarkable singer, a gifted piano player and a star on the rise.

Most musicians fit nicely into one genre. Matt does not. He's that unique sort of talent that can do it all, with a musical ear only a handful of musicians are born with. His style contains a breadth of influences – from R & B, soul and gospel to jazz, pop and rock. A self-taught piano and guitar player, Matt can breeze through songs with his soothing style leaving listeners yearning for more. He can sing with enough soul to woo Brian McKnight or even slip into a jazzy number with the coolness of Harry Connick Jr.

Matt practically came out of the womb ready to be a musician, singing at age 2. Soon after, he was soaking up the music of Stevie Wonder, James Taylor, Nat King Cole, Miles Davis, John Coltrane, The Beatles, Djavan, Take 6 and numerous others.

His passion for music led him to the prestigious Berklee School of Music in Boston, where he played with John Mayer, among other well known artists. While studying at Berklee, Matt was selected to be a part of the Singer Showcase, which highlights the school's best vocalists.

It's with that education, a deep sense of history and unmistakable talent that Matt is beginning to make his mark on the music world today. Currently, Matt is touring around the world with Brian McKnight – who discovered Matt in 2000 and has been a mentor ever since. Matt was chosen to tour with Christiana Aguilera and has shared stages and studios with James and Livingston Taylor, Stanley Clarke, Babyface, Bebe Winans, Jon B. and Jessica Simpson, as well as many others. He's performed live on "The View" and "Live with Regis and Kelly."

He's the complete package: rich musicianship, awesome voice, incredible range, plenty of charisma and most importantly, truly amazing songs.
