Born as Matthew Tyler Musto, Blackbear grew up in Florida. He grew interested in music through punk-rock bands Rancid and Blink-182. He was also influenced by New Found Glory and Alkaline Trio which his babysitter suggested. By the time he was in high school, Musto was a singer for a local rock band, Polaroid. He dropped out of school by 10th grade to embark on a career in music.
After Polaroid, Musto moved to Atlanta and worked with Ne-Yo, the releasing a couple of early EPs. It was in 2011 when the identity of Blackbear was born, deciding to use the pseudonym for his music, with Mike Posner's "Marauder Music" being the first track to feature the new stage name.
The man also co-wrote Justin Bieber's hit 2012 single "Boyfriend", then dropped his debut EP "Foreplay" in April of 2012. From then on, Blackbear propelled to success as a solo artist, songwriter, and record producer. Among his notable work as a songwriter and producer include Nick Jonas' "Numb", Big Time Rush's "Windows Down", Gnash's "Crash with Me", and Maroon 5's "Beautiful Mistakes".
In 2015, Blackbear released his debut album "Deadroses" which featured the 2x Platinum hit single "idfc" which stayed for over a year on the Billboard R&B charts.
To date, Blackbear has five studio records and seven EPs, with 2020's certified-gold album "Everything Means Nothing" and 2021's "Misery Lake" as his newest EP featuring the crowd-favorite single "@ my worst".
Just recently, the man gave news about his upcoming new album, "In Loving Memory", tweeting "ALBUM DONE" tagging Travis Barker, and telling the press that his new record revisits his pop-punk roots.
"My new album is very alternative and pop punk," says Blackbear. "The whole idea behind the album is a letter to my father who passed away, and I never got to say goodbye. I’m making this music that is true to my roots".
Blackbear's soon-to-be-released record is expected to be his most heartfelt and nostalgic album from all of his work. He reflects and revisits past experiences and lessons that made him who he is this day.
