Matt Di Filippo

Matt Di Filippo is an acoustic guitarist from San Antonio Texas. His involvement in Catholic music began in 2004 at the age of 14, when he was invited to help out with the music ministry at Mass. As a result of discovering music as ministry during Mass, he began to write instrumental songs from of his time spent in deep reflection and prayer. Matt uses the guitar as a tool to draw out the emotional depth of what he feels.

He later joined a ministry called Two-Twelve Ministries, founded by fellow recording artist Dan Dúet. Since joining the ministry, Matt has taken his music on several concert tours around the United States and Canada. He has participated in many events varying from youth spectaculars to conferences.

In 2010, three of Matt’s songs were featured as background music for the EWTN television program, “The Faithful Traveler”.

To date, Matt has released two CDs of original instrumental music. His debut CD, “Mystic Heaven”, was a final nominee for the Catholic music Unity Award for ‘Instrumental Album of the Year’ in 2008.
