Matt Mays perseveres through tragedy with the power of music

For those unfamiliar with Matt Mays’ music, you are missing out on some amazing music, but you most likely recognize his name from a Twitter blow up where he made headlines for accusing Toronto Mayor Rob Ford of taking his seat at an NFL game. And even though that was a particularly light-hearted tale, Mays has had his fair share of tragedy in recent years.

In our new interview with the Canadian rocker, we asked him about the tough year he had, losing band member Jay Smith who was found dead in an Edmonton hotel room last March, and how music helped heal even the deepest of wounds.

Watch the entire interview clip below and be sure to tune into a new episode of the M3 Countdown this Saturday at 6E/3P on M3.
