After moving to Seattle at age 20 (1983), Matt played in a variety of bands, and instantly found the creative local music scene very inspiring. While there, Matt met many creative musicians such as neighbor Kim Thayil. Kim's new band Soundgarden was in need of a new drummer, so Matt joined on drums and remained from 1986-1997. Soundgarden toured the world many times over, released 5 albums and won two GRAMMYs.
Soon after the breakup of Soundgarden, Matt was asked to join Pearl Jam in 1998.
