Full Biography

* Suffolk based pianist with a wealth of experience performing across the UK.
* Selected to play the piano for Princess Diana’s brother, The Earl Spencer, at Althorp House.
* Repertoire spans from 1930's Jazz standards to Modern Rock & Pop from artists such as The Beatles, Bruno Mars & Ed Sheeran!

Born in Suffolk, Matt was bought a keyboard for Christmas in 1985 and, musically, has never looked back. His first public performance came at the tender age of 10, winning a talent contest infront of an audience of 800. Matt then progressed to play background music at many charity events, Masonic occasions and private parties.

Since graduating from university with an Honours degree in Popular Music Studies, Matt has gone on to play in rock and pop bands around the country. In August 2013, Matt was selected to play the piano for Princess Diana’s brother, The Earl Spencer, at Althorp House and considers this to be one of the highlights of his career so far.

His ever-expanding piano repertoire is a mixture of Jazz, Pop, Classical and Rock songs. Many Jazz standards from the 1930s onwards (Blue Moon, Summertime, Autumn Leaves) sit alongside a wealth of songs from more modern artists such as The Beatles, Bruno Mars, Stevie Wonder, Robbie Williams, Ed Sheeran, Bon Jovi, Kings Of Leon, Alicia Keys, Snow Patrol and Oasis. Matt likes to keep up with the charts and is always learning the newest songs. Matt will also happily incorporate any ‘special request’ songs into his set if notified in advance.
