Joana Martinez vs. Matthew McQueen: "High Hopes" - The Battles
Hometown: Georgetown, Texas
Residence: Georgetown, Texas
Matthew grew up around music, and his father encouraged him to learn a new instrument after hearing him sing. Matthew quickly picked up both the guitar and piano, and he played his first gig when he was only 8 years old with his family band. He started a band in high school and after graduation pursued music full-time. He still has to take odd jobs to make ends meet but has been working hard to make a name for himself in the music industry. Matthew currently sells gold and silver investments for the US Gold Bureau and performs locally with his band.
