for the LOVE of Music with Sara Troy and her guest Matthew Wade, on air from June 27th
Billboard Magazine states, “My Silent Bravery plays like a major label signing, from its production savvy, eloquent lyrics, authoritative imaging, polished website, a dedicated Northeast U.S. fan following, merchandising, and most important, a chockablock collection of winning songs. My Silent Bravery is destined to make major noise.”
My Silent Bravery symbolises persistence, perseverance and inner strength to overcome obstacles in the face of adversity. It is this type of determination that helped Matthew Wade of My Silent Bravery overcome a sports injury in his youth which led him to pursue his passion in music. The injury opened the door to spirituality and a higher calling. Matthew realised he wanted to become a better person and a more sharing individual. Through personal work and transformation, he learned the importance of “paying it forward” and now feels one of his missions in life is to help inspire others to do the same by delivering his positive message to the masses through the music of My Silent Bravery.
