After much deliberation the trio agreed on "Broken By Grace" as the new band name, referring to how the hard times in their lives (the breaking points) have brought them to a better place, helping to make them who they are today.

Suffering as a young adult from a rare liver disease and for a short time being homeless, Matt has known his share of struggles yet he refuses to give up on his dreams. Perseverance is echoed throughout his songs as well as an appreciation and celebration of life.

The band is community minded and often involved with events sponsored by local charitable organizations. Their goal is to bring a little joy into people's lives whether it's through playing a fun familiar classic pop rock cover or an original about not giving up on your dreams.

Their music, mostly consists of high energy originals with big melodic hooks in a unique blend of Arena Rock;AOR Melodic Rock/ Hard Rock/Progressive Rock/Art Rock/ Symphonic Metal/ Rap Rock/ Acoustic Pop, and Ska/Punk.
