He's described on community radio music catalogue and distribution service, Amrap, as “an eclectic performer”, who appreciates experimenting and producing many styles of music.

Matt has been a lead guitarist in several bands throughout his career, even playing support for iconic bands such as The Radiators.

“With a passion for song writing, Matt has moved his focus into creating his own original music,” Amrap says.

“Wildfire is a catchy and uplifting song written from the perspective of those who work the land for a living.

“A well-crafted song with bright backing vocals and a rock style solo, Matt has pledged a large portion of revenue from the song to be dedicated to assisting farmers as they continue to struggle through fire, drought and flood.”

Matt has been performing for more than 25 years.

“I'm a passionate musician and passionate about music,” he says.

“Apart from performing live and in the studio I have also used my skills to set other musicians on the right path as a producer and engineer as well as promoter and mentor.”

Matt produced the video for Wildfire locally.

“I wanted to assist Rural Aid and our farmers in times of drought, flood and fire,” he said.
