Biography: 

I've spent countless hours of my life obsessiong over music. Opposed1 is the solo “one man band” project of Oregon based multi-instrumental Matt Jameson.

I am set to release my debut album in late January, with intent to begin a career as a singer-songwriter. The upcoming album, ‘A New Direction’ consists of nine original songs, each meant to simultaneously showcase my work as a guitarist, pianist, percussionist, composer and vocalist. I try to create a vintage sound reminiscent of late 60’s that somehow manages to also come through sounding fresh and modern. My goal is to make music addictive enough to be considered a controlled substance.

The album title ‘A New Direction’ speaks to the changes that myself and my music have gone through, the biggest of which was making the ‘switch’ from being a songwriter to a singer-songwriter. I can always remember hearing my own musical compositions in my head, even as a very young child. My parents instilled in me a strong love for music, and this translated into a great cure for childhood boredom.

Although I learned a lot of instruments growing up, my true loves are the guitar and piano. I began performing classical pieces in piano halls for audiences by the age of 10. By my teen years I had fallen hard for my electric guitar, but never lost my love for piano. I wanted to do a primarily piano-driven alternative album because I feel that piano is often missing in most modern music today.

I want you to fall in love with the piano again.
