One of the hottest video's to hit YouTube the past few weeks is by PA teen songwriting protege Matt Cermanski. Produced and filmed by Matteo Mobile, “Darling” is a teen-angst ridden video with an all too familiar theme of forbidden teenage love. The video has been causing a major sensation on YouTube with over 4000 views in the first couple weeks by word and mouth alone!
Matt Cermanski's performance in the video is none less than exciting and and honest. The song “Darling”, which has been receiving major airplay on WMMR-FM in Philadelphia, is skillfully crafted and showcases Matt's adept songwriting prowess – years ahead of his age (now 17) “I started playing guitar when I was 13 years old,” recalls Matt, “and I have been around music pretty much my whole life, singing as long as I can remember. My top musical influence would have to be Rob Thomas from Matchbox 20. I really like the songs he writes and the style of music. Another major influence is my Dad (renown music promoter Steven Cermanski), because he is the one who really got me into music and has helped me out so much.”
On the success of Matt's new video and single, he has ventured back in the recording studio. “I'm in the studio now recording songs for an EP, but I would like to record a full album in the near future to get all my songs out there.” As well as recording, Matt is preparing for some upcoming live shows. “I have played at the Trocadero Theatre and World Cafe Live in Philadelphia and Colonial Theatre in Phoenixville, PA. I do have a band and our next show is on September 11th in Franklinville, NJ opening for The Trammps who had the hit single 'Disco Inferno'.” The Trammps, who are blown away by Matt's new video, are also recording tracks for his upcoming EP.

Matt Cermanski's band consists of Matt (guitar/lead vocals), Eliot Reisz (piano/guitar/vocals), Justin Lombardi (drums/vocals), and Chris D'Amico (bass/vocals). “I also play out solo, and have upcoming shows scheduled,” says Matt.
