Matze is an alumni of MGI (Munich Guitar Institute) and LACM (Los Angeles College of Music). For years he played worldwide shows for Randall Amps, Washburn Guitars, Sugi Guitars and YouRockGuitar at Musikmesse, NAMM, MIAC, MEDPI and several music store events. In his early music career Matze got his own sixstring and sevenstring signature guitars from U.S. based guitar company Brian Moore Custom Guitars. These guitars are still available as Build-To-Order versions. His first band "Appendix" was the supporting act for the German metal band Blind Guardian. In 2006 1000 copies of his solo album "Truth Is Stranger Than Fiction" were sold out quickly. His band "Alias Eye" was signed by a label and released two albums, "In Focus" and "In Between". The latest record "In Between" is available on Amazon, itunes and spotify. Matze was a finalist of the Tieto Talent Shows in Estonia and Lithuania in 2009 and 2010. These two massive live DVD productions were realized by the Eurovision song contest Team of Estonia. Right now Matze is recording with his new band "the never have beens".


Matze is endorsed and supported by Sugi Guitars, YouRockGuitar, KHDK-Pedals, Cioks, Fishman, Morley and Pyramid strings.
