Matt Steady

Singer/songwriter Matt Steady of Leicester, England, is on the cusp of breaking onto the international stage. Whilst Matt chooses to identify his sound with folk, reflected in his intimate live performances, his recordings draw from a much broader palette of musical genres. Having been classically trained in piano, violin and musical theory, Steady’s growing frustration with the “notes on the page” philosophy led to a period of musical stagnation. However the dream of being a musician would not die, and he picked up a guitar, starting to emulate blues legends by ear. After years of performing what he describes as “extra-ordinary covers”, Steady has clearly experienced enough joy and heart-ache to allow him to write genuine and honest, non-trivial lyrics. He has an album’s worth of material to get off his chest! Steady’s grizzled appearance aptly matches his musical style and tone. His voice is rugged and raspy, in sharp contrast to the fragile lyrics and delicate instrumental arrangements. Steady is currently set to release his first full length album, “Blood is Thicker than Gold”, written, performed and produced himself, aided by Swedish drummer Niklas J. Blixt and the occasional appearance of other top-notch musicians. This collection promises to widen Steady’s appeal still further as elements of jazz, swing and even Celtic landscapes are fused with an earthy base of folk, rock and blues. The current teaser track, “July of ‘69”, finds him crooning over a gently played guitar and pondering man’s place in this world. The track peaks with Steady belting out “Living without a dream isn’t really life at all”. The upcoming months hold a wealth of promise for Steady with his forthcoming release. The strength and energy found in keeping his dream alive is what resonates most in his tracks. It is this same energy that will surely catch the ears and hearts of so many.
Album: Echoes of Albion (2018)
Not just blues, not just a Celtic revival, but a compassionate affair of the two, bringing winds from each territory to dance or fly to. Gentle blues licks with fierce melody guide you into Matt's vocals, deep like the roots of Tom Waits, but with the heavy-hearted tug that Nick Cave gives us. "How many souls will I have touched?"
