Student Spotlight: Matt Wilson

By Melanie King

“I had listened to Go Home Freshmen before, and I loved their music because the lyrics spoke to me.”

Matt Wilson, 20, is a junior entrepreneurship major who is currently in the process of auditioning to become a Music Industry and Recording Technology major.

He also plays the drums in the Maryland based pop-punk band Go Home Freshmen. He started playing drums in the fourth grade because his older sister was involved in marching band and orchestra. She wanted him to play violin but Wilson took to the drums and he has not looked back.

Matt started filling in for the Go Home Freshmen’s original drummer who was in the process of joining the Marines. He played a few shows with the band and to his surprise they invited him to be a permanent member. “When they asked me to join the band it was one of those fan-boy moments. I was so happy.” said Wilson. Though he is not an original member of the band Wilson has played a big role in the development of the band’s new album.

Go ahead...take a swing. I'll duck and listen.
