Growing up in Karratha, a small mining town in the Pilbara region on Western Australia's Northwest coast, Matt’s first steps into music began when a kind school teacher lent him an old guitar which had blown out the back of a 'Mini Moke', and a sheet of paper with a few chords on it. As time passed, he managed to get the odd lesson here and there when he could, but mainly taught himself to play from old books and records. The rugged landscape and isolation of the Pilbara gradually infused itself into his song writing and is subsequently reflected in his music. It's a hybrid blend of Roots, Folk, Blues and Alt Country.
Being somewhat of a nomad, Matt has spent much of his adult life coming and going here and there, mostly scratching out a living playing music or doing the odd ‘real job’ when times get a little tough. As such, he has performed in all the far flung corners of Australia.
