Still only in his early 20s, Matt Corby’s songs and vocals elicit a sensation that is nothing short of captivating. Having previously been compared to legendary artists such as Nick Drake and Jeff Buckley, Matt’s songs continue to deliver a uniqueness and maturity well beyond his years while his live performances have become renowned for bringing large audiences to a complete stand still.

In 2009, he independently released his debut EP ‘Song For…’ before relocating to London and signing with renowned UK indie label Communion after capturing the attention of the label’s owner; Ben Lovett of Mumford and Sons fame.

A year later, Matt released his hauntingly beautiful EP ‘Transition To Colour’ recorded with Ian Grimble (The Libertines, Seasick Steve). 2011 saw him playing sold out shows in London and showcasing at SXSW in Austin, Texas before returning to Australia to play a string of intimate “Secret Garden” shows in fans’ backyards. He also joined UK band Elbow as the main support on their national tour of sold out Splendour sideshows in July.

Matt Corby’s ‘Into The Flame’ EP, recorded with producer Tim Carr (Ernest Ellis, Jonathan Boulet) showcases a fresh injection of soulful growling vocals and bluesy melodies bound together with his already unique style of melodic folk. Lyrically raw and endearingly honest, his songs take the listener through an introspective and heartfelt journey. The EP also features a duet with Matt’s dear friend and keyboardist Bree Tranter, previously of Australian band, The Middle East.

‘Into the Flame’ was released at the end of 2011 in Australia and has reached quadruple platinum status. Matt’s first single Brother was nominated for APRA Song of the Year and reached number 3 on the listener voted triple j Hottest 100 chart. Matt Corby is currently performing on his sold out national theatre tour of Australia with the 15,000 tickets sold out in only 2 days.

Matt Corby will be heading back to Europe at the end of November after his sold out London tour at the beginning of the year. ‘Into the Flame’ will be released in Europe in September this year, with a new album to follow in 2013.
