In late 2019, Matt donated stem-cell for a leukaemia patient via the Love Hope Strength foundation, the world’s leading music against cancer charity. This unlikely twist of fate came after Matt released a song called “Now” in support of LHS 2 years previously. Now was produced by and featured Steve ‘Smiley’ Barnard on Drums (Lily Allen, Joe Strummer, Robbie Williams) and James Stevenson on guitar (The Cult, The Alarm, Kim Wilde, Generation X).
His live stage show is a folk-punk assault on the senses, brimming with passion, angst and energy. "The most important thing is that everyone goes away from the show feeling a little better than when they walked in." says Matt.
In 2016 his anthemic single ‘Rock n’ Roll Christmas’, won the Thomann International Christmas Song Competition and received international airplay.
