Matt was raised in the quiet picturesque farming town of Milton/Ulladulla on the NSW South Coast, started in his first band “Phantasy” when he was 16 and slayed every birthday party, surf club and Friday night pub in the area.
Matt hit the road and headed to Australia’s Country Music capital Tamworth. He found his feet pretty quickly and his songwriting reached new heights with his first CD “Put It Down To Experience” including the infectious “Giddy Up” which was picked up for the Paul Hogan movie “Charlie & Boots” where Matt also had a cameo appearance.
After endless tours and umpteenth radio interviews Matt felt it was time to pack up his guitar and laptop and head back to Nashville where he spent the last 4 years slowly but surely carving out a name for himself in “Music City”. He is now back in Australia for the next chapter.
Produced by Kevin Walsh, the Album of the Week feature is heard live on GMC every morning. You can hear the interviews in full here.
