When singer-songwriter Matt Maeson performs his music, the level of pure talent and energy he brings to the stage is unquestionable. Now, the Virginia native has made his national television debut on Late Night with Seth Meyers,  performing his breakout single "Cringe," leaving those watching in a state of  awe.  

The road leading the indie-folk singer to where he is now has not been without its fair share of challenges, but after overcoming addiction, jail time, and more, he has grown through hard times to release a collection of heart-wrenching music. From his 2017 debut EP Who Killed Matt Maeson,  2018 EP The Hearse,  to his 2019 album debut  Bank On The Funeral, the singer has proven time and time again that he is a force to be reckoned with. Maeson is unafraid of embracing his pasting transforming his harshest experiences to truly stunning music. Fans are able to witness Maeson learn and grow through the duration of a song, an EP, an album.  

Those who have been watching the singer-songwriter throughout the years may feel like proud parents after watching his television debut. If you haven't seen the magical late night performance of Maeson's hit track "Cringe," a self-reflective song about how his past actions were affecting his relationships and himself, you can below.  

Before his TV debut, longtime friend and musician grandson remixed Maeson's lead track "I Just Don't Care That Much" off of his debut album. The energetic song about losing his sense of self was given even more edge. Maeson's sound is limitless and the remix gives such an awesome additional fire to the intense track - listen for yourself below.

Maeson is hitting the road later this year on his  Ones to Watch presented The Day You Departed Tour. See if the folk singer is hitting a city near you below and grab tickets  here  before it's too late!
