Matt Hammitt

Matt Hammitt is a singer, songwriter, author, and speaker.

Matt has written over fifteen chart topping songs, performed by Sanctus Real and other musical artists.

A Toledo native, Matt now lives in Nashville with his wife, Sarah, and their four children. Passion for family is what led him to step away from Sanctus Real in 2016, to spend more time at home. This difficult transition is detailed in his book Lead Me: Finding Courage to Fight for Your Marriage, Children, and Faith. Matt holds nothing back in this unfiltered story of his life, so far.

In 2022, the Hammitts released a documentary called Bowen's Heart. This feature length documentary film follows (then) eight-year-old Bowen Hammitt through his third major open heart surgery, his family caught in the tension between hoping the surgery will make his life better and knowing it could make things much worse.
