Matt Maltese is a 20 year old singer and songwriter. Originally from Reading but now based in South London, he's fully immersed himself in the local emerging music scene, from putting on shows at makeshift venues to recording vocal parts for his debut EP late at night in his bedroom.

Musically, Maltese takes cues from a range of influences, from Leonard Cohen to French musician Francoise Hardy and local icons such as King Krule and Babeheaven. His evocative lyrics are full of rich imagery as he observes London life occurring around him and offer a glimpse into the maturity of his creativity, whilst his dreamy melodies maintain an undeniably accessible appeal.

Felix White (The Maccabees) has produced Matt's recent efforts and we urge you to check out his set.
