Matt Angell

Growing up in Karratha, a small mining town in the Pilbara on Western Australia’s northwest coast, Angell’s first steps into music began when a kindy school teacher lent him an old guitar which had blown out the back of a ‘Mini Moke’ and a sheet of paper with a few chords written on it.

He managed to get the odd lesson here and there when he could, but mainly taught himself to play from books and old records. The rugged landscape and isolation of the Pilbara gradually infused itself into his songwriting and music. Inspired by great artists like Johnny Cash, Leonard Cohen and Neil Young, he took these influences to form his own unique and distinguishable sound.

Being somewhat of a nomad, Angell has spent much of his adult life coming and going here and there, mostly scratching out a living playing music or doing the odd real job when times get a little tough. As such he has performed in all far-flung corners of Australia, from mining towns on the west coast, Darwin and the surrounds of the Northern Territory, 5-star hotels in Capital Cities, Cooktown and far North Queensland to the tropical Islands of The Whitsundays.

Over the years Angell has honed his craft as a live performer and is able to read the crowd at hand whilst adhering to a venues specific requirements. His huge repertoire and professional attitude means he can cover a wide range of styles from background restaurant gigs to up-tempo party atmospheres. He can play a mix of old classics to contemporary hits, but at the same time tries to move away from the most obvious standards when the clientele and situation allow.
