Biography

Matt began as a professional musician at age eight, when he was invited to join the cathedral choir in Gloucester. During his time as a member, he performed almost every day of the year, toured the USA, Canada, Italy, Australia, and New Zealand, starred in a BBC drama and recorded a number of releases. Although he didn’t realize it at the time, this set him up for a life of professional music.

After progressing through school and a number of studied instruments later, he settled on the bass and keys before leaving to study at Nexus ICA in Coventry, UK. He formed a band called [dweeb], hailed as ‘infectious’ by Rocksound magazine, who were together for just under ten years, during which he toured most of Europe, secured two record deals, wrote and recorded six releases and starred in a BBC documentary. After [dweeb] ended, he took on other performance and compositional based opportunities and continues to do so, taking him all over the globe. He has worked with a vast variety of artists including; Bill Laurence (Snarky Puppy), Elim Sound, Four Kornerz, Guvna B, J.R., Mali Music, Marco Parisi, The Moment (Dave Bell), SHEL, Sway and more. As well as working alongside keyboard giants Roland and Nord and more recently, very closely with Teenage Engineering on the development of their new OP-Z.

Alongside his work as a musician and songwriter, Matt is an integral part of the teaching faculty on Nexus ICA’s BA (Hons) Popular Music and Worship and MMus Popular Music Performance programs, developing curriculum, teaching, and tutoring - ensuring the next generation of Christian musicians are ready for the task. Most recently he has become an emerging academic, holding an MA in songwriting and with several papers on the route to publication, surrounding his research interest in musical education.

Matt lives in Coventry, UK with his wife Indy, daughter River & husky Tacoma.
