Western Australian-born balladeer, songwriter and keen surfer Matt Gresham has toured internationally with artists like Shane Filan, Guy Sebastien and popstar James Arthur and when a killer SXSW performance opened the eyes on Warner Germany, he moved to Berlin after being signed to the label.
“Songwriting for me is a huge healing process and it is very personal” says Gresham “but now I am collaborating with others to bring a great sound to the songs I have written.”
Debut single Small Voices, produced by Scott Horscroft (Silverchair, Birds Of Tokyo) and written with Jaymes Young (London Grammar) was one example of Gresham expanding beyond his already popular aesthetic. With a soulful tenor that bounds over his placid acoustic guitar, Gresham is a favourite for laidback listeners raised (as he was) on the sounds of everyone from Ben Harper to Paul Simon.
