Download Matt Southon Bio
Living on a bush property near Bega, Matt’s verandah has played home to much of
his raucous stomping about, with his style developing through absolutely no need
to turn it down!
“Matt’s 8 track ‘live’ EP is interesting and diverse. His
considerable song-writing talents are obvious in this debut effort. Very much in the mould of Hat Fitz,
his interpretation of the blues is raw with a sound very reminiscent of
traditional Delta blues.”
Russ Lawrence: President Canberra Blues
"The true power of music is when it's stripped of
its commercial ties and cross-marketing and simply becomes a raw cry from the
soul....Matt is proof"
Matt has performed at the Bruthen, Candelo, Narooma and Goulburn Blues Festivals
and supported the likes of Collard Greens & Gravy, Fiona Boyes, Glenn Terry, the
Blues Bombers and Lloyd Spiegel.
Matt has produced two EP’s. ‘Stone Cabin Sessions’ a six track EP completely
recorded in the stone cabin by Matt (and very lo tech); and the recently
completed ‘Hollerin!’ which contains eight original tracks and was recorded at
Pirate Studios in about seven hours.
Both EP’s are attempts to capture the energy of Matt’s live performance style.
