Greg Mate on SoundBetter

Dedicated and working hard to write music that convey emotions. Interested in collaboration - especially in Montreal - and Sync opportunities

Composer, Songwriter & Keyboard player Greg Mate after 2 years of classical piano lessons was promptly kicked out at the age of 10 wanting to play the drums instead - now playing guitar would be great.

Years later he got his first used Electric Piano from a buddy. “I had lent him a hockey helmet, which he’d worn out, so he gave me his keyboard."

Mate’s debut EP, Nothing Is As Short As Never (February 2022) introduces a soft rock sound through various versions of a power ballad by the same name. Double Cheek Kisses 80s Euro Pop single is getting great traction. He is very excited about his imminent 2024 releases.

When asked what he wants to accomplish with his music, he says “I want to write music that tells a story and that hopefully others can relate to and enjoy.”

The Sync world fascinates him as well, and he is working to share his songs through licensing to help others tell their stories.

Mate loves collaborating with other musicians. “I play well with others”. In December '23 I played in my first a live jam in a couple of years, and really have the bug again.

His positivity & creativity are set to challenge the status quo and help listeners find hope in a world that can sometimes feel hopeless. And with the quality and breadth of genres that his music offers, there will surely be something in Greg Mate’s growing catalog for everyone.

  16. A: I tend to write music before the lyrics. Then the music tells me what words to write, usually based on a theme I have in mind. I have a bunch of song titles, like everyone else I'm sure.
