Matt Abbott is a poet, educator and activist from Wakefield, UK (b. 06.01.89). After early success fronting alternative pop act Skint & Demoralised, he returned to spoken word in 2013, and has since gone on to establish himself on the UK's flourishing scene.
His début one-man show 'Two Little Ducks' completed a 22-date UK theatre tour in late 2018. The show received 5* reviews both on the tour and at the 2017 Edinburgh Fringe, and the studio album is Matt's second poetry audio release. It also resulted in his début poetry collection, which was published by Verve Poetry Press on National Poetry Day 2018.
Through his activism, he's shared a stage with names ranging from Paul Weller, The Fall and Sleaford Mods; to Sara Pascoe, Shappi Korshandi and Francesca Martinez; to Jeremy Corbyn, Ken Loach and Kate Tempest.
He's the Poet-in-Residence at the National Coal Mining Museum for England, and an ambassador for Eureka! The National Children's Museum, Trinity Homeless Projects and CRIBS International. In late 2016, he was once of the poets to launch Nationwide Building Society's well-known TV ad campaign.
