How and where did it all begin for you? What drew your interest to the music industry?

It began really early for me, falling in love with acoustic songwriters as a teenager, but I never imagined I would become one myself at that time.  In my 20s I followed a career in geoscience whilst carry on with music in my spare time. I travelled a lot and that intrigue for the world eventually led to writing songs that weren’t totally awful! It wasn’t until my early 30s that I decided to commit to music as a profession and I have never looked back. It took me a while to have the confidence to take the plunge into my passion, but I have loved every second since.Continue reading

NEW MUSIC: Mathew V – ‘Flashback’

The new single ‘Flashback’ from Mathew V… “Writing this song was one of the hardest things I‘ve had to do in my life. I wrote this song about my experience with sexual violence/rape at seventeen years old, and how that situation has influenced and affected my life today.

How and where did it all begin for you? What drew your interest to the music industry?

I started to really become interested in playing and writing music when I moved back to Alice Springs from the USA. Being the son of an avid blues fan/guitarist, and having not much to do in a small town, I became obsessed with every aspect! Learning guitar from my dad at first gave me the courage to develop my own style and eventually venture out into playing with bands and recording on a four-track tape recorder in my garage! I guess since then its come a long way.Continue reading
