Matt Wertz 是一位创作型歌手，当 Wertz 在伊利诺斯大学香槟(Urbana-Champaign)分校主修工业设计专业时，就对唱歌、写歌有着有着强烈的爱好。Wertz 在一个名为"Young Life"的露营活动上表演时，就得到了很多人的喜爱。之后，他的第一张专辑《Somedays》发行了，专辑由 Steve Wilson 制作。他接下来的两张录音室专辑和一张EP都是由自己制作，EP由他的好朋友 Dave Barnes 帮忙制作。Matt 时常与 Jason Mraz，Jamie Cullum，Gavin Degraw，Matt Nathanson和 Jars Of Clay 共同参加巡回演出。
Born and raised in Liberty, MO, near Kansas City, Matt Wertz grew up wanting to be a shoe designer, but when he started writing songs his freshman year of college, he realized that it was actually music that he wanted to pursue. Cutting his teeth at Christian youth group Young Life concerts and tour dates with Jars of Clay, Wertz independently released Somedays in 2001, followed two years later by 23 Places. In 2005 the EP Today & Tomorrow came out, and thanks to his constant touring, the singer, who had since moved to Nashville, was signed to Nettwerk Records. His album Everything in Between was issued in early 2007.
