MATTHEW FREDERICK fuses an early love of classic singer-songwriters with more recent influences to create a distinctive and timeless blend of acoustic pop, indie folk, ballads and blues, with a touch of Cymrucana and contemporary classical thrown in for good measure.
With headline shows in the UK, US and Europe under his belt, as well as fronting BBC Introducing favourites Climbing Trees, the Rhondda Valley musician has released five albums, two EPs and fifteen singles to date across a number of projects since his 2012 debut EP ‘Venus & Mars’, with tracks being used by Netflix, Sky and ITV, among others.
Alongside numerous festival, television and radio appearances, Frederick has also recorded at London’s iconic Maida Vale Studios, performed with the BBC National Orchestra of Wales and was shortlisted for the Welsh Music Prize following the release of the Trees’ much-anticipated and critically-acclaimed ‘Borders’.
In the spring of 2020 Staylittle Music released his debut solo studio album ‘Fragments’, a record on which Frederick plays each and every instrument, spawning five releases in the form of country-tinged lead single ‘Tell Me’, the late-summer haze of ‘Hay-on-Wye’, the delicate nostalgia of piano-led ‘Pink Blossom Snow’ followed by a quest to find every ‘Laura Jones’ across the globe, plus latest offering and long-time live favourite ‘Leave The Light On’, which rounded off an eventful (and uneventful) year with a first solo spin on BBC Radio 1.
