Act Profile

Matt - Guitar and voice

Matt is a guitar player and singer.

He specialises in providing an alternative musical option for people that want live music for their event, but don't want to go down the "pub and club" singer route.

Matt likes to play all kinds of different songs, these can be songs that are only a few weeks old and currently playing on radio 1, or they can be old classics from heavyweight bands. If it's a good song, it's in.

Matt uses onlyan acoustic guitar and his voice, and doesn't believe in using backing tracks orprerecorded cd's, as these detract from the goal - to provide real live music, to people who insist on an authentic sound.

Matt uses 2 floor pedals:
One is a Loopstation, used for repeating guitar parts that are played live. Using this, Matt can create the sound of 5 or 6 guitar players playing different parts simultaneously, live and without backing tracks.
The other is a simple guitar tuner.

Real Live music for Real Music fans
Over the years, Matt has played countless gigs and shows, from the bustling bars of Swansea's Wind Street to the intimate songwriter's haunts of the Uplands.

Matt has played countless weddings, christenings and birthday celebrations, tailoring his act to suit the needs of the client and the vibe of the audience.

Testimonials

Just seen Matt for the second night running in Butlins. What a set he plays!!! Absolutely awesome, me and my girls loved him! My 4 year bombarded him with pictures she had coloured for him and my 2 year old was engrossed on the stage step! He was so lush with them both! I would highly recommend booking him up and as we’re local to Swansea we’ll definitely be keeping an eye out to where he plays in future! And next time I’ll b making sure we’re child free to have a full on dance to his gig!

-Butlins Customer June 2018


Matt was booked to play at our garden party to celebrate our recent 'Secret Wedding' and he didn't disappoint. He wasn't fazed by our venue. We asked for 2 personal songs from him but the rest were left to him. He was professional and courteous and experienced enough to gauge what the guests would enjoy. We didn't want it to end. Matt is highly recommended.

-Donna Sprott


"Matt played at our wedding in October, - he was simply amazing!

Highly recommended!"
-Lara B - Swansea

"My request of Slide Away which you performed on the 14th February, where you also let me propose to my girlfriend on stage, was purely magical and one moment I will never forget.

Hope to see you perform soon!"

- Jonathan R - Swansea

"Catherine and I would just like to say thank you and say how awesome you were, it made the wedding day from the time you started to play as Catherine came down the aisle and through to the reception afterwards."

- Catherine and Mark S - Cardiff

Repertoire

Repertoire

Here is Matt's full set list.

These songs that Matt is both playing and listening to right now form the basis of his set.
Some you'll expect to hear, some you won't.
Matt feels that every single one of these songs is musically valuable.

This list contains a great many songs, far too many to get through in one evening, but Matt will always focus on the songs in the list that he feels the audience will enjoy the most.

Over the years Matt has learned so many songs that there are always songs that will only spring to mind when he is playing songs in a similar style, so if you're favourite song isn't on the list, drop him a line to find out if he knows it.

And of course, Matt will learn your favourite song if you want him to.

The set list is always changing, and if there's a song you'd like that isn't on there, just let me know.
