Matthew Baute  Biography

Matthew Baute

Have you ever felt sadness, weakness or pain? Have you ever felt abandoned, isolated or lonely? If you said yes to feeling one or more of these emotions, you are sure to be encouraged by the music of Matthew Baute.

In 2004 Matthew released his debut CD “Love Wins All”, with several tracks receiving airplay on EWTN’s Global Catholic Radio Network. His second CD “Hold Me, Lord” (WLP) won the 2007 Unity Award for Praise & Worship Album of the Year. “River of Grace” followed in 2008, produced by Grammy-nominated Warren Dennis Kahn.  An instrumental project titled “Harmony & Balance” was subsequently released in 2010.

Although Matthew has traveled the country providing music for retreats, conferences, Eucharistic Adoration and healing concerts, he now directs the choir and plays the organ at a small rural parish in southwest Wisconsin.  Together with his wife Leah, Matthew is primarily focused on raising their five young children.
