Matt Lalonde Releases Debut Album Medicinal

Matt_Lalonde_Photo_1(PCM) Matt Lalonde is a 25 year old musician/song writer from Milton, Ontario whose love for music began from an early age. He began playing piano and guitar at 6 years of age. However, his affinity and obsession with the craft of writing music didn’t start to take off until he moved to Windsor at the age of 17. He began playing with the band MicLordz and Sauce funky- a Windsor based funk/ rock band comparable to Red Hot Chili Peppers and Rage Against the Machine. Throughout the 7 years that Lalonde played with MLSF the band gained much attention and a large fan following upwards to 80,000 people proud to call themselves the MLSF Army.

The band was fortunate to gain the opportunity of partaking in a nationwide tour of the USA and Canada. During this time the quintet opened for many notable artists such as K-OS, Cypress Hill, My Darkest Days, Finger Eleven, D-12, Big Wreck, as well as many others. While serving as lead guitarist and backup vocalist Lalonde also played an integral part in the song/music writing aspect of the hard hitting band. MLSF’s two popular albums Sunset Ammunition and Good Luck were a collaboration of creativity between all five members and gained much popularity and generous sales on iTunes.

Still residing in Windsor, Matt Lalonde, now a solo artist, has released his debut album titled Medicinal- a fusion of alternative rock and blues. Written, produced, and recorded solely by Lalonde he has also created 4 music videos to support the album’s release with the help of his videographer, and editor Momcilo Dragicevic. Currently, Lalonde is focusing on planning a Canadian tour in support of the album with his live band Dogtone.
