Born London, England, May 1967.
He began playing guitar at the age of five and started his very first band when I was eleven. Playing in bands continued through the school years, and then during his two years at college in South London, one of the bands that he was writing songs for secured a small record deal…they sold about 500 copies of our debut single, mostly to family and friends, but it gave Matt a taste of the rock ‘n’ roll life!
In 1990 he formed a hard rocking five piece band, again writing the majority of songs, and once again managing to get a record deal, this time they released two fairly well received singles and appeared on various rock compilation albums. The band toured the UK non – stop for a year, before deciding that we would be better off going our separate ways as there always seemed to be more conflict than camaraderie!
Following this period, Matt began working as a session guitarist for various singers and bands in studios and also playing live when needed, for a couple of years.
He moved to Spain in 1998, and began working in hotels, bars, restaurants and private parties, playing guitar and sometimes piano, performing classic golden oldies and modern hits in a wide range of styles, securing regular work, six nights a week for almost ten years!
He relocated to Cyprus, in the Spring of 2010 and has since been working regularly in hotels and restaurants playing music of all styles.
He has a repertoire of 600+ songs, that he play either with backing tracks or acoustically. Matt has also played piano and keyboards when needed, but consider his guitar and vocals as his strongest asset. He also plays in duos, trios and full bands as and when called upon to do so, playing guitar, keyboards and bass.
