Matt is a classically trained cellist who is one of those rare few musicians who can combine classical with contemporary music. He creates layered, ambient, loops with the cello or guitar and then builds over them in a way that not only brings out the beauty of the cello but also creates a depth to the sound that is unique in itself.
His originals are astounding – I’m not even sure I can describe how beautiful they are. Not quite jazz, not classical, not anything that can be defined easily (and yet close to many things) his sheer love of music shone through. By the second set he had created a wonderful vibe in the room that had the audience completely mesmerized.
Hopefully we will be seeing a lot more of him performing around town in the coming months.
