Thundering riffs, wailing vocals, high energy crescendos, captivating Acapella, unorthodox guitar work and original storytelling are the backbone of a Matt Stillert show. His unique sounds range from soul soothing folk melodies to high energy foot stomping Alt-Blues/Rock, displaying a dynamic blend of roots influenced music.
With over a decade of playing bars, markets, venues, festivals and street busking, Matt has developed an intuitive rapport with any crowd engaging the audience, finding some cheeky laughs and ultimately inspiring imagination and passion in the captivated folk. The bearded bohemian left his home in Adelaide 4 years ago heading for the Sunshine Coast where he recorded his debut album "Shoe Boycotter" and quickly became known as one of the hardest working live performers around, playing over 200 shows a year.
In 2015 Matt performed at the Byron Bay Bluesfest (finalist in the Buskers comp 2015), The Gympie Music Muster, Australia Music Week, and Caloundra Music Festival, and opened for CW Stoneking, Joe Camilleri and the Black Sorrows and Hat Fitz and Cara. He released “Shoe Boycotter” in November 2015 and received a great response from Triple J and Community Radio all over Australia.
Following the launch he toured the album back to his old stomping ground in Adelaide. The homecoming has seen Matt reuniting with his old band mates and music collaborators and recording new material. 2017 will see Matt joined on stage by his long-time friend and collaborator, Bass player Tim Foster, with a mighty tour in store.
