The Brigadier is Singer, Songwriter and Producer Matt Williams who has been receiving critical acclaim for his intimate live shows and his timeless pop songs.
Having established a dedicated online following (and recently in the MYSPACE top 100 unsigned artists chart), Creation & Poptones boss Alan McGee was suitably impressed enough to offer The Brigadier his debut solo gig at his Death Disco night in Notting Hill, London.
Increasing exposure has led the Brigadier to enjoy healthy sales of his self-financed and self-released debut album 'View from the Bath' in 2007. A seasonal EP '6 Christmas Tales...' appeared at the end of that year. New album 'The Rise and Fall of Responsibility' was released in the Spring of 2008. Another seasonal (Autumn) EP was released in the Autumn of 2008 - 'Rhymes for Rainy days'.
The Brigadier has had radio coverage (Including BBC Radio 1, BBC Radio Wales and BBC Southern Counties) in the UK, USA and Europe, as well as magazine coverage.
In late summer 2009 he will release his third album 'Time is a wound'.
