Mackay and Whitsunday Life

Blues, Folk & Country Music Kickstart Your Weekend With Matty Angell

Performing this Friday and Sunday at the Jubilee Tavern please welcome Matt Angell.

Originally from the Pilbara region in Western Australia, he can’t stay away from the Whitsundays and had been visiting the region since 2001 before finally deciding to settle down here.

Throughout his adult life, he has earned a living through his music.
“Music is my art, my expression and my dreams... without all three, life is pretty pointless,” he said.

Matty has always loved music, but originally he only wanted to be a guitar player, he had no desire to sing.

“But I was always writing songs from the very beginning. So, then I thought I'd better start singing to give them a life!”

A regular at the Airlie Beach Music Festival, Matty has performed at the event six times.

This year, he will also be entertaining the crowds at the ‘Winter Moon Festival’ for the first time and said he is looking forward to playing some tracks there.

Matty describes his music as a mixture of blues, folk and county spiced with a little bit of rock now and then, his up-beat rhythm and feel-good vibe is the perfect way to kickstart your weekend.

He added “I have a new song being released online on the 3rd of May, as part of a collection of lost and forgotten tracks from the past that span my entire musical career.”

“They'll be rolled into a full album later in the year and then everything will make sense...stay tuned.”
