Matthew Kilford is a singer/songwriter who currently resides in the relative serenity of the Oxfordshire countryside. Matt once played guitar in the highly acclaimed indie rock outfit Belarus, but all that's in the past. The future, as they say, is where it's at. After the demise of the aforementioned Belarus, Matt began to work in earnest on his own songs, enjoying the simplicity and freedom of being able to write and perform with just his voice and an acoustic guitar. After a short while some of these songs popped up on the internet and people became extremely interested in the sounds they were hearing. With songs that highlight his extraordinary voice and skilful guitar playing, whilst retaining hooks and a unique songwriting slant, this is something far more magical than another acoustic troubadour furrowing his brow. After a handful of powerful performances Matt is already creating a buzz on the live circuit and has crafted a set of tunes that possess echoes of Jeff Buckley, PJ Harvey and Joni Mitchell without actually sounding like any of them. This autumn sees the release of his first four track E.P. entitled “house on the hill” which promises to be a fine debut.
