Matthew Koma is ready for the big stage.
The singer/songwriter made a huge splash in the industry by writing the hook on Sebastian Ingrosso and Alesso’s smash single “Calling (Lose My Mind).” On May 22nd, Koma hits the road with LMFAO, Far East Movement, The Quest Crew, Sidney Samson, and Eva Simons for the “Sorry For Party Rocking Tour.”
In the midst of it all, he is preparing to release his heartfelt, debut EP, “Parachute,” on May 29th.
“I think any great record or great artist achieves a truth,” Koma says. “Sometimes it’s a hard thing to tap into that honesty, but it’s important to accept the responsibility and deliver something real. That’s the only way to connect with people in an honest way, through trust. Having kept that in mind throughout the process of making this record, I hope these are stories people can feel and take something from.”
Koma wrote and produced/co-produced all of the four tracks on “Parachute,” working with collaborators Alex Da Kid (Nicki Minaj, Rihanna), The Runaways’ Sam Watters and Louis Biancaniello (Kelly Clarkson, Leona Lewis), The Smeezingtons’ Ari Levine (Bruno Mars, Bad Meets Evil), and Mike Caren (T.I., B.o.B.).
The four tracks that make up the “Parachute” EP are just a taste of what’s to come when Koma releases his debut album “Propaganda” later this year.
