Hailing from Montreal, Canada, Mattia Pironti is already leaving his mark in the world of the entertainement and music industry. His talent was first recognized in Israel, where he was a contestant on the hit TV show “The Voice of Israel". All four judges turned around during Mattia's live audition, and Mattia chose the renowned Aviv Geffen as his coach. During a chance encounter at a restaurant, Mattia also met the 1978 Eurovision Song Contest winner Izhar Cohen. The two developed a close friendship, and Izhar mentored Mattia during his time on the show. Mattia amassed a loyal following that continued to support his musical career after his departure from “The Voice".
Mattia returned home to Canada to volunteer with at-risk youth in the north of Quebec. Under the tutelage of Ex-NHLers Joe Juneau and Gaston Gingras, Mattia helped implement hockey programs to encourage Inuit youth channel their energy into positive outlets. during his time in Nunavik, Mattia continued to share his musical talent with the world by participating in the Arctic Char Festival and the Akpik Jam Festival.
Upon returning home to Montreal, Mattia auditioned again for the hit TV show “The Voice of Quebec". He made it through the first round of auditions, but left after receiving his acceptance letter from the prestigious Berklee College of Music. The school, which only accepts 32% of applicants and has produced notable alumni such as John Mayer and Quincy Jones, also awarded Mattia a scholarship so that he could pursue his education with them.
Choosing to obtain a bachelor's degree in songwriting, Mattia threw himself into his studies, writing a new song every week and learning to produce and arrange his own songs. He graduated in 2015, having completed his 4 year program in half the time.
Mattia decided to leave Boston and travel to Italy to perfect his live act. There, he performed in historical cities such as Florence and Rome, drawing crowds of up to 300 people. He spent over six months performing for crowds in restaurants, clubs, and on the streets. He credits his powerful onstage presence to the months he spent abroad.
Mattia recorded a full length album and several eps with the help of the friends he made during his time in Berklee. eight of his songs were mastered at the legendary sterling sound studio by Alex Psaroudakis. His first single, “Get Away”, was released on October 24th 2017. It was subsequently picked up by Montreal's biggest English radio station, The Beat 92.5.
