One can say Matthew Head’s musical journey is a bit unconventional. The Marietta native started playing piano at the age of five, but instead of following music into college he went to Savannah State University on a football scholarship with the intent of becoming a teacher like his mother. After practice he’d go back to his dorm and do what he always did: make music on his keyboard. A roommate heard his music and took him to a home studio where he then started making beats for local rappers. Soon the young producer left college to pursue music full-time.
“I didn’t pursue music, music pursued me,” explains the married father of two. “One job led to another and my network grew. That’s how I got into doing work in the Film/TV industry and that’s been my primary focus since 2008.” Head has many credits on his IMBD, an Emmy for his work on the documentary “Melissa’s Story” and he’s in the final running for a Pulitzer for Atlanta Journal Constitution’s docu-series on doctor sex abuse. I sat down with this local talent to discuss some of his career highlights so far and what the future holds him and the growing Georgia Film/TV industry.
