Matt Sanchez is a rapper/singer-songwriter, model, and actor. He is Egyptian, Puerto Rican and Haitian. Matt, along with his brother and little sister were adopted by a loving lesbian couple in the Bronx, New York. His childhood was filled with challenges, including often being the subject of bullying throughout school which led to challenges surrounding self image.
However, Matt’s mother, Rosie, was a consistent cheerleader and pushed him to do well in school. Matt graduated early, at the age of 16, and enrolled in Berkeley College. He majored in marketing, but felt like it wasn’t the direction his life was
meant to take. He discussed this with his parents and his mother, Rosie, encouraged him to follow his passion. It was around this same time that Rosie became ill and later succumbed to her battle with cancer in 2018. Matt took his mom’s advice, the belief that her spirit would be his guide and started venturing out of his comfort zone to pursue his dreams.
He began writing poetry with Urban Word NYC. His first poetry slam competition was at the world famous Apollo theater in Harlem, NY. Matt made it to the final round. His poetry writing eventually evolved into songwriting. His online posts
caught the attention of his current manager and mentor David Capers, who introduced him to Kashif "Kash" Hameed, founder of Kash Productions. With some direction and guidance, Matt was able to write amazing music!
Currently, Matt has been featured in modeling campaigns for Jordan, Nike, Foot Locker, Under Armour and Champs, just to name a few. He is also being considered for multiple acting engagements, but he is pursuing his number one passion, which is music.
Matt’s debut single, "Tonight" is out now and available on all streaming platforms. We are confident that it is only a matter of time before everyone realizes what Rosie already knew to be true; Matt Sanchez is a star.
