Spring Update 2nd April 2014


 So a little bit of an update from me. 


Radio: I recently was a guest on the BBC radio Devon Introducing programme as a pundit on the round table of the new releases from local bands. There was a very good selection of material whoever said that Devon has no great music is so far off the mark. I feel that at the moment the standard of bands and artists has never been higher.  


Last week I was live from the Royal Albert Hall at the Cures first of a 2 night residency there. The show was stunning the best Cure gig I have ever been to and the atmosphere was one of the best of any gig I have ever attended. 

This Friday I will be live from the Danny Thompson 75th Birthday gig in London with special guest Richard Thompson that should be amazing.
Phonic FM in Exeter are doing a show dedicated to yours truly on Tuesday 29th April at 8pm on 106.8  FM in Exeter and on the web at http://www.phonic.fm I will be talking about all the music I have done and more importantly the music that I like to listen to. Hopefully with a few surprises on the way. 


Secrets for September: we played our first gig of the year the other day at the Tobacco House in Exeter and we have a few shows lined up for the summer. The new EP ‘Letting Go and Live’ has been getting some great reviews if you have not heard it yet then pop along to http://secretsforseptember.bandcamp.com .


Department Factory: I performed with Michael Soundy another Department Factory show and like last year we released it the following day. One review has said  'Matthew North is a talented musician who is able to combine elements of disparate genres in a seamless and coherent fashion.'

Other music: I have been asked to play guitar on a very special project more to come on that but it’s a new field for me. I have also contributed guitar to a new song by the band ‘The Legendary Ten Seconds’ and I’m also playing guitar on the new Scott Morrison EP added to that I’m also going to be releasing my first solo single called ‘Something Memorable’ it’s a song I did when I was the guitarist of Falling Trees for a bit and they were happy for me to have a crack at doing my own interpretation of it and thankfully they like it. 

I have a few gigs coming up see http://www.matthewnorthmusic.co.uk for details. I have also updated the web page with just about every gig I have ever played so you can see a bit more of my musical history. 

More news soon
