Matt Clark; Three

Matt Clark; Three is a new, rhythm based jazz project I’m starting. The music takes influence from the burgeoning new jazz scene on both sides of the Atlantic, but also throws a nod to influences as diverse as Krautrock, funk and hip-hop.

It’s a convergence ideas inspired by all the new music I’ve heard over the last couple of years, and aims to be more than just a gigging band. Think events, happenings, art installations, film scores…

It’s early days, but stay tuned for more…

Morgan Ryan Session

I’m very proud to have been asked to add some guitar to this track for Brighton based singer songwriter Morgan Ryan. It’s a beautiful song about the situation at the US-Mexico border.

The Devil’s Storybook – Annika Brown

I’m really excited to be working with singer-songwriter Annika Brown on the arrangements and performance of her upcoming album “The Devil’s Storybook”

“[Matt’s] guitar and Annika’s voice… you’ve got some pretty tasty potential there!”

Elephant’s Graveyard Review


Excellent review of Elephant’s Graveyard from Fringe Review – I’m really proud to have been part of this, and the play will now be a full production run next year!

“Billed as a rehearsed reading director David Eaton has managed more in the flexible NVT Studio space. With Kasha Goodenough on production and managing, Vanessa Barrett and Mark Green on seedy costume designs – this is a full costume performance. The overall scarlet/black detail of costumery is carried to Adam Kinkaid’s scarlet/black scene painting. Keith Dawson’s light design is unfussy. Leanne McKenzie’s light and sound operation comes to the fore in balancing the live musicians: Adam Hewitt music director, Becca Huggett singer, guitarist Matthew Clark and Neil Rocks on drums. Marie Ellis deserves notice for voice coaching.”

DADDAD Project


I’ve decided to record a number of tracks for a new project, DADDAD, which I’ve been experimenting with for a couple of months now. The title comes from the tuning – DADDAD, and the plan is to record 6 improvised tracks using the notes as inspiration. It could turn out to be a really restrictive decision, but we’ll see!

Stay tuned for more updates on release dates etc.

Elephant’s Graveyard
