Matthew Houston


Matt Houston is a recording arts teacher at Fusion Academy Huntington Beach. He was born and raised in Fairfax, Virginia. He graduated from Lebanon Valley College’s Music Recording Technology Program in 2011. After graduation he toured the north-east as the director and performer of Funky Fontana party band, while teaching drumset at a small music store in Pennsylvania. He returned home for a few years and continued teaching and was also fortunate enough to serve as a drumset accompanist with the George Mason School of Dance. In 2015 he moved to Los Angeles with his partner, Akinyi. He enjoys producing and writing songs with friends from Virginia, some of which live nearby! The only type of coffee he likes is black, French press, and he stays humble by surrounding himself with people he admires.
