At the age of 20 years old, Matt Maltese is already fully embedded in South London’s thriving music circle. Last year alone, he hosted his own residency in Brixton whilst playing alongside hotly-tipped local acts such as HMLTD, Goat Girl, Fish and Shame. The latter add to an already eclectic collection of artists who have influenced Matt Maltese in some way - the heavy tones of Leonard Cohen, the dirty wit of Jarvis Cocker, and the social commentary of fellow Londoners King Krule and Loyle Carner. These influences place further emphasis on the sense of political unrest that underpins Matt's rich and undeniably accessible songwriting.
With two sold out shows at London’s Servant Jazz Quarters on the record, and performances for exponentially growing crowds both at home and abroad, Maltese is ready to kick off a UK/EU tour, supporting The Walkmen frontman Hamilton Leithauser. Matt will cap that run with his biggest headline show to date at Bethnal Green Working Men’s Club, on, before opening for The Maccabees in Birmingham, Glasgow and Newcastle as they prepare for their huge farewell shows.
