Matt Ward is making his mark on the country and Americana music scene.
His debut album @Heartland took out the ARIA #1 Australian Country album chart spot. His four singles (Annabelle, @Back To the Country, Take Me Home and Better Man) were all highly successful releases receiving over 140,000 combined streams on Spotify. Rhythms Magazine described Heartland as a "world class” and the album “testament to Ward’s ability to blend popular and alt. country elements in convincingly heartfelt songs”.
Ward recently showcased at Nashville’s Americanafest and Australian Music Week, and was announced in the first line-up of artists for one of Australia's biggest festivals, the 2020 Groundwater Country Music Festival.
Ward is now releasing new music recorded at the famous Yellow Dog Studios in Austin, Texas (Kasey Musgraves, Kris Kristopherson, Mike & The Moonpies). Recorded with some of Texas’s top musicians, Ward's new music is sure to bring new fans from around the world. With a driving beat, killer guitar riffs and a consistent ability to deliver catchy lyrics and melodies, Ward's new music draws similarities to outlaws such as Steve Earle, Waylon Jennings and Hank Williams Jr. It reflects Ward’s development as a genuine crossover artist between Australian, Americana and Outlaw Country. Off the back of his success with ‘Heartland’, Ward’s new material stamps him as a serious creative force in Australian Country and Americana music.
