Missio is an American pop rock duo formed in 2016 in Austin, Texas. It consists of founding member Matthew Brue (front-man/songwriter/producer) and David Butler (songwriter/producer). After the completion of Matthew Brue’s demos, he hired friend and local producer/engineer David Butler to collaborate on their self-titled EP, which would later be released in November 2016. After unexpected online success, Brue made his debut appearance under the name Missio at the SXSW festival in 2016 with help from David Butler. Matthew invited David to officially join in July 2016. In 2017, they signed a record deal with RCA Records and released the single Middle Fingers, which peaked at No. 9 on the Alternative Songs chart. Missio’s debut album, Loner, was released in May 2017. The duo’s second album The Darker the Weather // The Better the Man was released in April 2019.
