Darren Matthews & Mat Miller are a songwriting duo based in Melbourne, Australia.

They write edgy and rootsy tunes that blur the lines between folk, blues, country and rock. Their music features strong melodic narratives and lyrics that explore universal emotions, and the human/social condition.

They also have a considerable library of instrumental landscapes and tunes inspired by the beaches and wide open spaces of Australia. Due to this influence, a lot of their work can be described as 'road music'.

Prior to their collaboration, they had both been performing regularly at premier Melbourne venues since their mid teens. Matt won a national guitar solo competition and toured for some time with a number of established cover and concept acts such as 'The Australian Doors Show’ and then went in search for a co-writer and vocalist to form a new indie act.

Darren had enjoyed national airplay with Melbourne Indie group 'Late November' and again solo under the pseudonym 'Daddylonglegs'. Together they have continued to write, record and perform for the past decade with various bands and as a duo.

Darren and Matt are always looking for that note or chord that will 'twist the knife'. They have often imagined what it would be like if the Beatles and Pink Floyd (who were recording next door to each other in 1967 at Abbey Road) had joined together for a session. If they focussed on writing a soundtrack for a road-trip film and Jack Kerouac, Leonard Cohen, Dylan and Neil Young dropped in to write some lyrics and jam.
