The Seattle native relocated to L.A. and is not only pursing his acting career, but is also in the studio working on his debut album. He recently released his first single, 'Shine On,' which sounds like Jason Mraz meets Maroon 5, and shot the video for it in his new hometown.
"Shooting the music video for 'Shine On' was an amazing experience," Mathias tells JSYK. "How many kids my age can say they woke up before dawn, skim boarded at the beach, played on the Santa Monica Pier and drove a 2010 red Mustang convertible down Hollywood Boulevard all before lunch?"
See if you can spot all the L.A. landmarks in his new, sun-drenched video after the jump. 'Shine On' is available in stores and on iTunes now.
