FOR FANS OF: LEONARD COHEN, BILLY MARTEN, MARIKA HACKMAN
Matt Maltese is a 20 year old singer and songwriter. Now based in South London, he’s fully immersed himself in the local emerging music scene, from putting on shows for himself and other local names at makeshift venues, namely South London studio 180 - a dilapidated Georgian terrace part art studio/part squat owned by National Rail - to recording vocal parts for his debut EP late at night in his bedroom, singing quietly so as not to wake his housemates.
Musically, Matt Maltese takes cues from a range of influences from Leonard Cohen to French musician Francoise Hardy. His evocative lyrics, which are full of rich imagery as he observes London life occurring around him, offer a glimpse into the maturity of his creativity, whilst his melodies maintain an undeniable and accessible appeal.
