It was at the age of 16 that Matt began writing songs. "I'd been listening to a lot of lyrical music, surrounding myself with songwriters such as Noah Gundersen, Jackson Browne, John Moreland, it was listening to these songs that made me want to create“. Matt spent over a year beginning to write, alongside playing local open mics and continuously surrounding himself with music. "I'm always listening, and wanted to release some music of my own". In August of 2017 Matt did just that. His Debut EP "Hummingbird" draws influences from Folk, Americana and roots music, his lyrically driven songs accompanied by melodic acoustic guitar have landed him support slots for two of Birmingham’s most prolific songwriters - Dan Whitehouse & Alex Ohm. After playing his first headline show at the Kitchen Garden Cafe in Birmingham last September, Matt is currently writing new material for a 2019 release.
