Matty's drumming career began at the age of 1 when his parents decided to buy his first drum kit after they noticed his enthusiasm to hit things in a rhythmic manner (often during dinner time with eating utensils causing a big mess). Fortunate enough to have been mentored and inspired by his Dad and Uncle (two heavyweights in the UK Music industry), Matty was destined for major success!

Practising day and night to turn that natural rhythmic banging into powerful well-drilled rudiments, it's no surprise that Matty quickly became an integral part of his church band. By the age of 16 he had been able to nurture his craft and build enough skill and confidence in his playing to win the renowned Young Drummer of the Year competition (YDOTY) 2013. He then appeared at the London Drum Show opening for Jojo Mayer, and describes it as an honour to be invited back to now be doing his own set in recognition for his continuous hard work.

In the time that has elapsed between YDOTY 2013 and now, Matty has been fortunate enough to share both domestic and international stages with the likes of Stormzy, Plan B, Wretch 32, Soul 2 Soul, Little Mix, J Huss, Lady Leshurr, Lion Babe, Kojo Funds and Candi Staton at some of the most illustrious arenas, stages, TV shows and award ceremonies.

His message "anything is possible, you just have to keep pushing until you see results" is one that resonates with us all. With such an impressive catalogue of achievements and experience, it's hard to fathom that he is only 21...
