Sydney's Matt Corby grew up steeped in gospel; his passion for music fed first by renditions of ‘His Eye is on the Sparrow’ and later by a love for Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young. Along the way his talents were shaped by experiences both mundane and quite remarkable: touring with a church band, a stint working in Subway, music scholarships, support slots and talent shows; until by his late teens he found himself burned out, bewildered and unsure just where to take his music next.
It took a trip to London, shortly after his 18th birthday, to begin his path back to creative contentment. Playing low-key shows and falling in love with music again, it was there that he would meet with label Communion (home to the likes of Ben Howard, Marcus Foster and The Staves) and find himself encouraged to learn the craft of songwriting, to understand the marriage between the force of his voice and the words it carries.
The ‘Into the Flame’ EP was released at the end of 2011 and has now reached five times platinum status in Australia. Brother was nominated for APRA Song of the Year and reached number 3 on the listener voted triple j Hottest 100 chart. Matt Corby performed on his sold out national theatre tour of Australia in June with the 15,000 tickets sold out in only 2 days. He was nominated for 3 ARIA awards last year, with Brother winning an ARIA award for Song of the Year for 2012. Matt's latest single 'Resolution' was released in June this year and has been certified platinum, reaching number 10 on the ARIA charts.
Matt and the band return to Australia to play a national Tour and Fat as Butter after a run of sold out UK and European shows and festival appearances at Glastonbury, Blissfields, Barn on the Farm and Latitude.
