"Matt Plays America!"

Matt Monaghan’s music is the sound of a man falling in love with the concept of sound and lyrics forming patterns together to tell about unique situations and stories. His sometimes ghostly guitar and soothing voice is vibrant in several songs while in others you hear evocative, sporadically inspired melodies.

Being adored and revered by his fan base in Europe, Monaghan has decided to cross the Atlantic in order to bring his resoundingly respected and admired music to mainland America. His song portfolio shows an artist who is not afraid to show a raw and edgy talent which is wonderfully absent of over produced pop music that steals the roots from artists.

Matt Monaghan is a musician who has taken a gamble with a definite payoff in gaining a set of distinctive, strangely addictive songs.

I envy all of the people who get to attend a performance while he is playing small yet highly regarded venues because these fans will have great stories of an amazing music experience. !

I’m sure Matt Monaghan will catch a wave of craving admirers who will flock from all parts of America to see one or more of his shows as he gains in reputation."

Bio

Matt Monaghan originally comes from England, but he's spent the last thirteen years travelling and working in many different countries.

Three years ago Matt got serious about his song-writing, moved to Cadiz in South west Spain and started a band. He quickly found an audience for his music. Over the past two Matt has been busy touring all over Spain, playing in festivals and concerts ranging from old abandoned flamenco halls to outdoor acoustic music festivals.

Matt plays guitar, ukulele and banjo with his band of double bass, second guitar and drums. One of Matt's passions is sciences, especially the natural world, evolution and astronomy - most of Matt's songs tell stories and many explore new developments in these areas. Matt is also committed traveller and likes to spend long periods travelling in countries, learning the local language and looking in dark places for song ideas.

In March 2011, Matt is taking part in an ecological expedition to the uninhabited 'Clipperton Island' in the Pacific ocean where he will take part in a scientific study and produce an album of songs from the experience.

Matt released his first album of song 'the lost boundary' in Jan 2010. He also set up his personal website, with an exploding volcanic theme and live demos of new songs.
