Early career Good's introduction into the music scene began when he was asked by members of a folk group to write lyrics for them while he was in high school. Good then began singing with the group. Good taught himself to play guitar at the age of 20 and started writing songs. Good's early career in music involved a variety of folk demos and a stint as the lead singer of a folk band, The Rochester Kings. In , he won a prize from In March , the original band went on tour across Canada. Upon return, the band split up and Matt started over with a new group of musicians.

Matthew Good Band Main article: Dave Genn originally only recorded with the band as a paid session musician. The four recorded the band's debut full-length album , Last of the Ghetto Astronauts , releasing it independently in , after which Genn officially joined the band.

The band was not originally called "Matthew Good Band". After the album was released, "Alabama Motel Room" began to receive significant radio airplay, and people began requesting the song on radio and the album at retail stores calling the band, "Matthew Good Band". At the time, the band had been having conversations about the band's name, but the band then decided that the band would be called "Matthew Good Band".

Although initially popular only in the Vancouver area, the band began to catch on across Canada in , with the singles "Alabama Motel Room" and "Symbolistic White Walls" becoming significant hits on radio and their music videos being played on MuchMusic. The group then agreed to release the upcoming album under a distribution agreement with PolyGram Group Canada.

After releasing the EP Raygun in May , the band later that year released their second full-length album, Underdogs. The album was produced by Warne Livesey , who would go on to produce every full-length MGB album and most of Good's subsequent solo albums.

The album spawned the singles " Everything Is Automatic ", " Indestructible ", " Apparitions " and " Rico ", all which were hits in Canada. In late , Geoff Lloyd left the band and was replaced by Rich Priske. On January 21, , Underdogs was certified Platinum in Canada. Good himself boycotted the Juno Awards, and guitarist Dave Genn has been quoted as saying that he only attends for the open bar. The Audio of Being In , the band began working on their next album.

The album's creation came during a difficult period for Good. While he struggled to deal with the band's success, he was diagnosed with sarcoidosis , prompting him to temporarily quit smoking. Following throat surgery to remove a nodule from a vocal cord, Good stayed in a hotel for three weeks in Whistler to work on songs for the new album.

Good wrote most of the album while unable to speak or sing. Good later wrote that he spent much of the time "trying to keep down food supplement bars, trying to forget the growing tension within the band, the high expectations of needing to produce 'hit songs' whatever they are these days , throwing up, and trying to find some semblance of direction in my personal life".

The band entered the studio in late to record the material. The sessions saw a great deal of intra-band turmoil. In February , the band began a brief tour of the United States to promote the American release of Beautiful Midnight. In June , the band released the EP, Loser Anthems , and followed it with what would be the band's final tour in the summer.

In August , Dave Genn quit the band, returning though four days later. The band released The Audio of Being on October 30, Breakup In November , it was revealed that Genn had left the band again and Ian Browne had also left the band. In March , during his first interview after the breakup was confirmed, Good stated that the breakup was "a conscious effort on everybody's part".

Avalanche Good released his solo debut, Avalanche , in The album featured major stylistic differences from those recorded with the previous band. The album featured the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra on several tracks, including the first two singles, " Weapon " and " In a World Called Catastrophe ".

For the album, Good elected to take a stripped-down approach. Rather than record each instrument separately, Good and his new band which consisted of himself, former MGB bassist Rich Priske, guitarist Christian Thor Valdson and drummer Patrick Steward recorded the songs as a unit, with Good adding vocals and additional guitar parts later. Good later noted that he loved the freedom of being able to write a song, enter the studio, and have a recording completed almost immediately, rather than having to deal with the sometimes arduous process of recording layers and layers of music for a single song.

Good encountered controversy with the video for "Alert Status Red". Initially, the video was intended to be a concept piece, directed by Good. However, upon entering the editing stage, he realized he hadn't shot enough footage to make his concept work. He opted to turn all of the footage over to Kyle Davison, who directed the video for "In a World Called Catastrophe", to see if anything could be made out of it. Davison came up with his own concept, edited it together, and sent the finished product to Good.

Good approved of the video, and made it available for download on his website. Good, however, was unaware that Davison had utilized several short clips of surveillance footage of the Columbine High School shootings in the piece. Upon hearing about the clips from individuals who felt the use was insensitive, Good pulled the video from his website. After watching it again, he decided to enlist the opinions of others, including MuchMusic , to see if they had any objections.

Most felt it was reasonable, granted that the use wasn't exploitative and helped to support the message of the video, a message that they believed was decidedly relevant. He then returned the video to his website and expressed his support for the work of his co-director.

Good noted that he was concerned his previous line-up had run its course creatively, and that, as a solo artist, he was graced with the freedom to change direction by involving different musicians. He hoped that Dahle and Bradfield might be able to lend a new perspective to familiar material. However, when Good undertook a brief tour of Ontario in July , he was rejoined by Priske and Valdson.

The first single from the album, "Oh Be Joyful", was released at the end of July. In April , Good entered the studio and recorded nine songs from his catalog, reworked and performed acoustically. Following the release of In a Coma, Good began demoing songs for a new album. While promoting In a Coma, Good noted that he might use the release of the compilation to mark the end of the first era of his career, where he could then move on to write "weirder" music.

In March , Good embarked on a solo acoustic tour of Canada, which featured smaller crowds and more intimate settings. Good spent several weeks leading up to the tour reworking many of his older songs to fit a solo acoustic format, including rarities such as "Fated" and "Life Beyond the Minimum Safe Distance". He was joined on tour by opening act Melissa McClelland , with whom he played a cover of the Nine Inch Nails song "Hurt" at the end of his solo performances.

Hospital Music In the aftermath of divorcing his wife, developing an addiction to Ativan and being diagnosed with bipolar disorder , Good channeled the emotional turmoil into his next album, 's Hospital Music. The album's first single " Born Losers " was also a success, peaking at 27 on the Canadian Hot Hospital Music was additionally influenced by Good's proximity to Vancouver's notorious Downtown Eastside neighbourhood, just blocks away from his Gastown loft.

Recorded at Toronto's landmark Massey Hall in May , it is an unaltered recording of that night's performance. Vancouver In July , Good announced he had begun working on his fourth solo album to be titled Vancouver. The album was released on October 6, For about a month prior to its release, the album was made available on his website for free streaming, stating a desire to make his music as accessible as possible. He later described the recording of Hospital Music and Vancouver as having together "closed chapters" regarding his personal life, allowing him to focus his energy on a stylistically different project for his next album.

Joining Good and his band as a supporting act was fellow Vancouver-based group Mother Mother. Lights of Endangered Species Good entered the studio on October 19, , to record his fifth album as a solo artist, Lights of Endangered Species.

I like writing things that are both intelligent and subversive. There's so much for me to write about — society has become so absolutely ridiculous.

Until recently Good made a practice of return following all Twitter followers but recently has found that reading so much content from these followers has left him with no other option but to unfollow all but a few.
