Another member of the FLCC crew, Matthew Billings was a part of a number of jam sessions and hangouts before it ever occurred to anyone that he should be a part of the Tribe! Matt brought a whole new element to MVT, laying down beautiful synth pads and effects, great and tasty piano lines, and some of the most impressive solos you've seen out of the group. Matt also uses Ableton to trigger vocal samples and drum loops. He is a core member of the quintet on MVT's recording "Long Drives, Late Nights" and also performed with the Tribe at the 2014 Rochester International Jazz Festival. Matt is now an audio engineer at Liberty University where he regularly provides live sound for large scale events, concerts, and more. He also still has regular jazz gigs in Lynchburg, VA and produces his own original music which encompasses his favorite styles: Jazz, Deep House, Classical, and Hip Hop.
