LONG BIO

The story of Beautiful Kingdom lies within a common thread in the lives of each member. Tyler, Nadia, and Matthew each spent years dreaming of forming a band as close as family and being part of a powerful team that would transform the world around them. Before meeting, all three had been making music for well over a decade, performing in groups as well as solo.

   

Tyler may have been the first to know that the band would come to be. He’d grown up in a musical family, watching his father and uncles' singing group since early childhood. He worked a job manufacturing window shutters in high school, writing music alone, and patiently keeping his eyes open for the right people. He was eventually offered a job as a live sound engineer, which led to a brief stint working as a technician and stage hand at the largest concerts in Las Vegas. It was while working at those concerts he saw performances by some of the biggest stars in show business. He realized his calling was to play meaningful music and impact the world in a new and positive way alongside the right individuals. He is the writer behind Beautiful Kingdom songs such as “Be a Voice,” “Heart-Shaped House,” and “What Is This World.”

 

Nadia adored drawing as a child and wanted to be a cartoonist. She studied in commercial arts, then grew into songwriting as an emotional outlet. Eventually she was led to yoga and healing, which became integral for her in maintaining a strong connection to nature and God. Health and wellness became as important to her as the arts, and so she began singing for yoga and dance classes. She worked for years recording her songs as a solo artist, always seeming on the verge of great opportunities, but refusing to be caged into anything that would be musically or spiritually inauthentic. Her journey would lead her to realize that all she had learned would prepare her for a higher calling of devotion. She wrote Beautiful Kingdom songs such as “Tall Mountain,” “Grand Love,” and “Grateful.”

 

Matthew was an athletic, enthusiastic kid who loved writing and telling stories. In his early teen years, he began struggling with complex and serious chronic health problems that lasted for over a decade and a half, and kept him from doing much of what he loved. As he was forced into greater and greater isolation, including three years of being bed-bound, songwriting became first an outlet, and eventually his sole lifeline and purpose for continuing. The clarity of having nothing made clear what he needed to do with his life. The journey led him through every imaginable modality of healing and philosophy, and informed not only his creative process, but his entire way of being. He composed “I Am Home Anywhere I Go,” “I Once,” and “Your Instrument.”

 

In the spring of 2014, Matthew and Tyler were introduced by a mutual friend who insisted the two must meet. Initial phone conversations led to discussions of forming a band. About one year later, Matthew and Nadia would meet on a beach in what could only be described as a divine orchestration. Both heard a voice telling them to walk in a particular direction, meeting face-to-face moments later.

 

A chance visit to Canada in 2016 allowed Tyler to meet Nadia, where she was recording music at the time. With Matthew still recovering, months of process and discussion began as the group took great consideration in choosing a name for the band that would best represent them and their core message to the world. 

 

In the summer of 2019, with Matthew’s health gradually returning, the band finally united in Matthew’s hometown of Luverne, MN. Rehearsals commenced and the band realized they were progressing rapidly, their early sound coalescing around soulful singing with rich harmonies, piano, guitar, ukulele, and drums.

 

Within a week of their initial beginning they were invited to perform at Sterling’s, the town’s premiere local restaurant. Since then, the band has been on a fast track, performing at venues around the area such as Falls Park, the Washington Pavilion, and a variety of local restaurants and theaters. With all three members writing, singing, and playing multiple instruments, the band is always brimming with new ideas. No show ever seems to be quite the same as the one before it, as they blend styles ranging from rock and pop to cinematic, folk, and occasionally even dance, funk, and jam.

 

The band also features a powerful aesthetic, from the way they dress onstage to the way they decorate the drum set with flowers. It’s a mystique reminiscent of something royal, magical, and new all at once.

 

Beautiful Kingdom speaks to the desire to bring heaven to earth, to create more love in the world, and to heal, inspire, and empower through music. While the band’s talent and range are impressive, the depth of the music is what keeps people coming back, as the songs dive right into the heart and sing from the soul. During a show, audiences will experience wonder, joy, a sense of encountering something truly special—and ultimately seeing what is possible for humanity and the world.
