Matthew L. Fisher, for those of you who are unfamiliar with his work, is a freelance and published composer. He has created many classical pieces of music over his career.
We, of the faith, were first made aware of him in 2010. We checked out his YouTube channel and really enjoyed his music. We decided to message him and within a couple of weeks he was working freelance for the faith on several projects.
In 2012 we decided to have our members create works of art based upon the faith we share, and so, we stopped paying Matthew for his services.
The arrangement between him and the faith was that all music produced by him at that time was owned by Yahmos Productions – The Creative Branch of the Faith – and that he would only showcase examples of the work for his freelance business.
In 2019, however, we have discovered that, not only has he broken the contract, he is selling copyrighted material (Music owned by the Faith) to people purchasing licenses off him on Audio Jungle so that they can then use it in their projects.
We have sent him an email Cease and Desist and have waited several months for a response from him. But, it seems, he is still selling Music we commissioned and own, to others on the internet.
This kind of behaviour is despicable and must not be tolerated. We are now discussing our options with our legal team and we are most likely to issue him with a DMCA (Digital Millennium Copyright Act) and failing that we would have to file a suit in the United States of America.
Our advice to anyone who seeks to commission or buy licences from him should reconsider.

I know a lot of you have been following some of my latest releases and some of them have sucked. History Lessons was a complete wreck of an album and I’ve been wanting to correct that mistake for over two years. The album was rushed as I was travelling back and forth from Indonesia to see my then-girlfriend.
I have recently discovered autotune which I am just playing around with at the moment. I’m not going to rush the album again, I’m going to rewrite a lot of it and use royalty-free beats as backing to save time. Constructing sound is harder than simply singing and it will probably be better sounding anyway.
I’ve already redesigned an old cover for this albums cover image. It looks great.
I’ve also been busy looking for another distributor as the last one, RouteNote, was exhausting. They removed my album The Complete Collection without any notice. They had me jumping through hoops every week just to keep my music in online stores. I’ve lost so much revenue because of their incompetence and after two years of being with them I’ve decided to remove my entire catalogue from their website and I am in the process of uploading it all with a different distributor who has today approved my upload.
In terms of my album History Lessons, I know that I have made a lot of songs about my ex-girlfriends, but this time I’m going to rap about something else. After the last song, which landed me in a U.K. court, I’ve had to rethink my attitude towards music and what can and can’t be said on a song. I hope free-speech returns to the U.K. one day but for now, I’m just going to take the necessary measures to avoid being taken back to court.
I’m going to start rewriting the lyrics to the album shortly. You can follow my progress by subscribing to this news feed or signing up as a member of this website. I pretty much only use this website now and if you want to chat I’m always available here.
