ATLANTA, GA – Singer-songwriter Matthew Hawk releases his latest single, Forever, to all platforms and various radio formats.
“This song makes me happy.” These are the exact words from the first few people who heard this song, including the backup singer.
It’s ironic, because this song was written during a time of deep sadness. This song came out of a prayer during a very dark time. The Bible tells us to be thankful—and Hawk heard God encouraging him to give God praise. “Here I am with a grateful heart / I bow down to worship you, Lord/ And I – I’ll love you forever..."
In his head, Matthew Hawk heard a slower, melancholic, more emotional version musically, and yet, as he played it on the guitar for the first time, his guitar seemed to have a mind of its own.
The sound created is Joy. And it’s what this song brings. Add in tight harmonies, banjo, and mandolin to the classic lineup of drums, guitars, and keys, FOREVER is a song that lifts your spirit and makes you want to praise Jesus with a skip in your step and a smile on your face. It’s a song that reaches all generations
Hawk appeared playing guitar and/or singing on films such as Pitch Perfect 3, The Change Up, Boy Erased, What to Expect When You're Expecting, Come Sunday, A Question of Faith, and the television shows, The Vampire Diaries, The Baker and the Beauty, American Soul, and Atlanta Live among others. He also doubled in multiple films for famous actors Jason Bateman, Adam Sandler, Jon Hamm, Ed Helms, Mel Gibson, and many more, flew the Gemini 8 in the film First Man, and doubled for Finnick in the Hunger Games Trilogy. But his greatest film accomplishment was probably saving Jennifer Lawrence's life (true story! She thought tuna casserole was Mac and cheese.)
Hawk was nominated for three Native American Music Awards and his music video, Coming Home, won an award at the Emerald Coast Film Festival.
Matthew Hawk is a songwriter who can’t help but to praise the King. “There's nothing I enjoy more than drawing people into the presence of God, but it's more than just leading worship on Sunday mornings. It's a deep desire to write songs for His glory--songs that speak and touch and heal. Songs that draw people to the Father. Songs that are alive and full of His presence and purpose. Songs that meet people in their brokenness and journeys with them to Jesus,” says Hawk.
