Re Mattei – Bump Bump Bump (Official Music Video)
http://www.remattei.com- Re Mattei was born in Trenton, New Jersey, the daughter of parents who love music. Her mother played the violin and her father played the accordion. Her parents introduced her to many genres of music including country legends such as Tammy Wynette, Waylon Jennings, Johnny Cash, and Johnny Rodriguez, along with the pop influences of artists like Rod Stewart and Linda Ronstadt. As a young child, Re asked her mother what those people on the radio singing did for a living. Her mother responded by saying, “that’s what they do…they’re singers,” and Re replied, “then that’s what I want to do.” She started entering talent shows and school musicals. At ten years old she began writing songs and appreciates the storytellers that paved the way like Harry Chapin and Mac Davis.
She studied at Berklee College of Music receiving a Bachelors degree in guitar performance. Two weeks after graduation she auditioned for lead guitarist and singer of an all-female seven-piece band named “Uptown Girls.” She toured the U.S., Hawaii, Japan, Singapore, and the Philippines, playing at military bases and nightclubs. After touring for three years Re moved to Nashville to become a songwriter and recording artist. She collaborated with songwriter Rick McMahon, and their song “Broken Rose” received honorable mention in the Music City Song Festival in two categories (music and lyrics). She has performed at the Opryland Hotel, Bluebird Cafe, and the Tennessee State Fair WSM-sponsored stage.
Re is currently in the studio working with producer Bartley Pursley who has worked with artists such as John Rich, Gretchen Wilson, and Randy Owen. Her first single “Country Love” written by Re and Rick McMahon will be the debut song off her up-and-coming album. Re explains, “Music has always been my medicine. When life gets tough I put on my headphones and rock back and forth to my favorite songs.” Re’s years on the road have taught her that it’s important to have fun on stage and entertain the fans. “My hope is that my music can be a medicine for others and leave them with a smile on their face and a song in their heart.”
