Mult-talented singer/songwriter and producer, Talib Matin is a triple threat. With his debut EP Home, he focuses on the sensual nature of melodic sounds underscored with descriptive metaphors that lead to a urban twist.
The West Atlanta native’s journey began at the age of 15 when he joined a group called “Xciety”. During this time, his passion and purpose started to align and has taken him to higher heights in the industry. He credits influences from veterans J.Cole and Wiz Khalifa, which contribute to his crossover of genres 90’s R&B/hip-hop and alternative sound. His infectious R&B melodies are what is most prominent in his single ‘Essence.”
