Matt is a professional vocalist and guitarist, working as a session musician, with bands and touring with his own solo act.
Matt cut his musical teeth aboard P&O’s Ocean Village cruise liner, playing lead guitar with the resident band… learning three new sets each week to support visiting tribute acts and seasoned artists – from Queen, Elton and Robbie tributes through to Bucks Fizz, Jaki Graham and the Ladies of The Supremes. He was then recruited by Vogue Madonna, one of the most respected and popular tributes on the European and UK scene, doubling up as lead guitar and lead male vocalist in party band The Quirks (aka Nightfly).
He’s been a regular at Liverpool’s Mathew Street Festival for the last ten years, and played to 3,000+ audiences in Finland, Germany, France, Luxembourg and the Azores. And he’s supported the likes of Go West, Heatwave and Chesney Hawkes on the UK Butlins circuit. Corporate gigs have included British Gas, Microsoft, Virgin, Boots and Versace.
Matthew has now honed his own act, adding a wealth of professionally produced backing tracks to create a solo performance to fit venues from pubs and clubs through to private parties, weddings and corporate events. It crosses the musical divides to mellow the mood… or rock the joint.
Based in NW London, he is a favourite at Bunga Bunga, Battersea, The Paddington Packetboat and the Regent, Balham – as well as venues right round the UK.
