To say that Matt is a ‘jack of all trades’ is still selling him slightly short. He started life as a session musician, playing in bands that shared stages with the likes of Crosby, Stills & Nash and Elvis Costello. His songs found their way onto American television through other people’s voices. His skills behind the glass as a producer and mixer has become well sought after worldwide. Some years ago he found his own voice, watching and learning from the masters as he opened for everyone of every genre coming through the speakeasy’s of Belfast, from Peter Green and John Hammond Jnr, to KILA and Foy Vance.

Matt’s 3rd album ‘The End of the Common Man’ was released to massive acclaim in 2018. ‘Bubblegum’ the first single from his 2020 album ‘Lessons of War’ has already received more plays on BBC Radio in Northern Ireland, than the latest single from fellow locals, Snowpatrol.

And yet Matt’s ability to connect with an audience is his true strength. His energy and charisma on stage is infectious, and together with his incredible songs each carrying subtle messages of social awareness, listeners can be forgiven for not knowing whether to laugh or cry.
