Happy Birthday, Matt!

Here at the Swift Agency, just a guy who’s always late to the party, we’d like to wish a happy belated birthday to The Agency’s Matt Billingslea. The talented drummer hails from Westminster, Maryland where he started playing drums at age of ten. He was a part of several bands through high school.  Matt has the title of Bachelor of Music from Capital University, with a double major in Jazz Studies and Music Industry.

Matt has toured with Grammy-winning country group Lady Antebellum. He co-wrote their hit “Wanted You More”. He’s also toured with multi-platinum country star Gary Allan.
