Born in Maliotenam, an Innu community located on Quebec's North Shore, Matiu joined the ranks of 117 Records in the fall of 2016. After releasing a self-titled EP in 2017 followed by a well-received debut album Petikat in 2018, the singer-songwriter released his new album "Tipatshimushtunan" (which means "Tell us" in Innu) directed by Louis-Jean Cormier.

During his career, Matiu has performed across the province, in Africa, Texas, Europe and the rest of Canada. Adorned with his guitar and surrounded by his exceptional musicians, he presents a folk-blues show in which French and Innu texts intertwine. Matiu tells his story and that of his community through lyrics that deal with daily life, human and family relationships as well as the quest for indigenous identity
