Matt Maeson took to music early, learning drums and guitar at a young age. Melding bluesy indie folk and modern production, he began posting tracks on SoundCloud and eventually caught the ear of Atlantic affiliate Neon Gold Records, which signed him in 2016. Maeson embarked on his first headlining tour that summer, which was presented by Communion, the music organization founded by Mumford & Sons’ Ben Lovett. Led by the singles “Cringe” and “Grave Digger,” his debut EP, Who Killed Matt Maeson?, was released in conjunction with Atlantic and Neon Gold in March 2017. A year later, Maeson released a six-song EP, The Hearse, followed in December 2018 by a two-song single: “The Mask” and “Cringe.”
