In 2014, after six spiritually formative years living in California, singer-songwriter Christina Eltrevoog returned to her hometown in rural Illinois where she became re-acquainted with a friend from adolescence – Matthew Pittman, who had been playing in various projects throughout the state for several years. In early 2017, the pair began performing one another’s songs as an acoustic duo Matthew Michael & Christina Marie (MMCM). They have been collaborating ever since, writing and performing throughout the United States.
Emerging from their mutual roots in Midwestern US, MMCM engages audiences from the heartland to the coasts with honest songs expressed in harmonically-rich layers of voices and strings. They approach music with reverence to moment, regard for the past, and exploration of the future. MMCM released their highly anticipated first collection of songs In Between in July 2020. The songs were borne of hope for the ideal, angst of the actual, and peace found in presence. MMCM is currently in production of their next collection.
