ABOUT THE 'BITTERSWEET' CD
First, thanks for taking some of your precious time to find out a bit more. I’ve put my heart and soul into these 12 songs. There is an undercurrent running through them because the album was written over a certain period of time for me. However, the inspiration behind them came from a myriad of sources. Relationships, the countryside, the sea, good times, bad times, all sorts of people, events, sayings, beliefs, other musicians/songwriters and pretty well everything really. All you hear is created and produced by me but inspired by everything else! Although you will hear drums and keyboards accross the album I found that using real instruments like piano and acoustic guitar really emphasised the raw emotion on many of these tracks. I loved putting it all together and if one or two songs from this collection make a connection with you then I’ll have done my job. Do let me know what you think and I’d love to get an Email from you. Thanks for giving ‘Bittersweet’ a try. Take care and stay in touch, Matt

FANTASTIC
HI MATT

These songs each have a built in bluetooth to your brain.
I listen to a lot of songs and it takes something to catch my attention with an idea. Each one of the tracks on Bittersweet has an idea that demands your attention without shoving it down your throat (ok ear canals). You don't have to listen. The songs just communicate and the work to produce them does them full justice.
