Unspoken first came together after lead singer Chad Mattson met guitarist Mike Gomez on a mission trip in the Dominican Republic. Chad had been struggling with drug and alcohol addiction for years, and decided to go on a mission trip to re-build his relationship with God. It was there in the Dominican Republic where Chad’s eyes were opened and he came to know Christ in a powerful way.
After Mike moved to Chad’s hometown in Maine, the two began playing music together, and performing live shows. Bass player Jon Lowry and drummer Ariel Munoz from Puerto Rico, later joined the band and Unspoken was born. After working for years as independent artists, and opening for band’s such as Casting Crowns, Third Day, and TobyMac, Unspoken released their first studio album Get To Me (June 8, 2012), a record that focuses on the journey of coming back to Christ- similar to what Chad experienced in the Dominican republic.
