Matt Peach blends powerful no-nonsense guitar riffology with infectious vocal lines. His music is rock, with a finger of folk and a pinch of punk, all glamorously delivered in such a way as to try and bridge the ever growing divide between modern-pop and rock.
His upcoming album Epiphany is his best work to date. Packed with fan favourites such as “Cut Out Teeth”, “Dreaming” and “Paris”, this album sees Matt return to his musical roots, grounded in folk, punk and rock. In Matt’s words “I’ve never made a record that is as true to myself as this, and I think it shows. It’s just me making a noise I like. There’s no reinventing the wheel here. It’s rock n’ roll and I’ve realised it doesn’t need fixing; it was never broken.”
In late 2019, Matt donated stem-cell for a leukaemia patient via the Love Hope Strength foundation, the world’s leading music against cancer charity. This unlikely twist of fate came after Matt released a song called “Now” in support of LHS 2 years previously. Now was produced by and featured Steve ‘Smiley’ Barnard on Drums (Lily Allen, Joe Strummer, Robbie Williams) and James Stevenson on guitar (The Cult, The Alarm, Kim Wilde, Generation X).
His live stage show is a folk-punk assault on the senses, brimming with passion, angst and energy. "Nothing's more important to me during a show than making each person in the audience feel like they're a member of the band, you gotta get everyone involved. No point in just standing there! If I don't come off dripping with sweat then I haven't worked hard enough," says Matt, "For me it's key that everyone goes away from the show feeling a little better than when they walked in. Might sound cheesy, but ain't that the point of music?”
In 2016 his anthemic single ‘Rock n’ Roll Christmas’, won the Thomann International Christmas Song Competition and received international airplay.
