Mather is set to further his reach with the release of his debut EP, The Long Way Home. He collaborated with a number of industry veterans in Nashville, including Charlie Judge, Jimmy Lee Sloas, Shannon Forrest, B James, Mark Hill, and Sol Philcox.

“It’s a surreal experience collaborating with my musical heroes” Mather said. “These guys are legends, having contributed to the creation of timeless masterpieces, spanning from the iconic works such as Alan Jackson and Keith Urban to some of today’s greats like Morgan Wallen and Luke Combs. Having them on our team, shaping our record, is an incredible blessing.”
