I’m over the moon to announce that I have just scored two songs on the new Travis Collins album- “The Bottom Of It” and “It Was Wheels” we’re both written in Nashville late last year- Travis is one of my fav Aussie Country artists so it’s a real honour to get two songs on his new album. I have also been notified that I have one song on the new Wolfe Bros album to be released soon- “Even Beautiful Gets Lonely To”. I wrote the song with Nick Wolfe over at his managers house about a year back. The Wolfies are really concentrating on the US market so I’m chuffed to have one on there album GIDDY UP.

For those of you outside Australia that don’t know Cold Chisel “Wiki them” they’re an absolute legend of a band and Matt feels absolutely honoured to say the least.

Just a little heads up on whats been happening in Matt’sย life of recent. He’s been asked to be in a reality TV show based in Nashville called “Another Country”. It features a bunch of Singer/ Songwriters from different parts of the world. The show is just a “pilot” at this stage and is still in it’s early stages of development. We’ll keep you up to speed as things progress.

He’s also been Writing with Damien Baguley of the Viper Creek band and Travis Collins- both of them were over in Nashville working on Songs for there up and coming albums.
