From Opera to Pop Rock: Lee Miller Matsos’ Musical Metamorphosis Continues with Latest Single ‘Mother’s Day Weekend

 Metamorphosis can be defined as a change in physical or structural form, and perhaps nobody knows more about change than Lee Miller Matsos.  His musical journey began as a teenager, after seeing Frank Sinatra and Sammy Davis, Jr., leading to a life of opera and musical theatre. Until, that is, he decided to metamorphosize into a pop rock artist by enrolling at Holland College in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island in 2019. While in PEI, he wrote most of the songs for his debut EP, and on September 8, 2023, the “Metamorphosis” had begun.

On May 10, 2024, Matsos will released  his 4th single, Mother’s Day Weekend”, from the upcoming EP, “Metamorphosis, Pt. 2”. Check it out on YouTube here:

“I wrote “Mother’s Day Weekend” on a chilly, rainy, and eerily calm Saturday in May 2020 in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island,” Matsos explains. “I had had 3 head injuries in the past 14 months, and I had managed to finish my first year of school at Holland College School of Performing Arts a few weeks before. This time of solitude and Covid upheaval was the incubator for the biggest creative outburst of my life, including this song.”

“My mother was a deep, inspirational, and poignantly beautiful soul,” says Matsos, about the inspiration for his latest single.  “I felt her presence close when this song arose. I still feel her presence, especially in times when I need her encouragement. It is nice to know that something about the soul is inexplicably timeless.”

“Mother’s Day Weekend” will be the first single released from the “Metamorphosis, Pt. 2” EP dropping on September 6, 2024. Joining Matsos (vocals/keyboard) are Tyler Ray on guitar, Chris DiCola on bass and Sam Merendino on drums.

Lee Miller Matsos’ lyrics highlight his evolution from “grief, pain and brokenness to hope healing and restoration.” The ultimate “Metamorphosis”.
