Event description

Description

Matthew Armitage is an accomplished multi instrumentalist, songwriter and singer from New Zealand, who has worked with a broad mix of NZ Bands throughout his career - Good Laika, Odessa, Bunnies on Ponies, Family Cactus, Ginger Brown and Boomshack Band - some taking him overseas to Berlin and New York, but only in the last couple of years has he exposed his own voice and songwriting talents.

Armitage followed his heart and relocated to Australia in 2013, where he quickly found his feet as a solo blues man singer/songwriter in the thriving music scene of Byron Bay. He released his first EP, Over Oceans, the following year which brings together elements of South Pacific soul, raw garage blues and mellow psychedelia to form his first chapter as a solo musician.

2015 and 2016 saw Armitage gig over 250 times a year from Brisbane down to Byron Bay solo and with his two bands- popular Byron Bay 60's cult Hollywood, surf, jive and blues duo, The Swamps and another duo, Chesta Hedron, an all original, heavy psych, kraut rock, surf instrumental band who released a 5 track EP Infinite Nought April 2016. Their music has been used for the sonic back drop to Quiksilver Pro 2016 contest wrap videos- Radical Times on the Gold Coast and Radical Times in Western Australia.

Now in 2017, Armitage is still sharing his musical talents on the gig circuit and excitedly putting the finishing touches on his solo album.
