Matt Charleston is a Pop/Rock artist, born in Sydney, Australia. Since picking up a guitar at 15 years old and purchasing a condenser microphone, he began writing his own songs. With many attempts, collaborations and performances, he perfected a sound that he could call his own which includes a mix of blues, rock, and alternative acoustic music (prominently seen in his ep (Out)DOORS). He is inspired by artists like Country/Rock artists John Mayer, and Colin Buchanan, and Blues/Rock artists Stevie Ray Vaughan, and Buddy Guy. He has collaborated with International Artists like US based rapper Young-Cami, and songwriter, Charlie Taylor. His debut album, Forgotten (To My Friends), was released in December, 2018. A year later he recorded a single that launched in December, 2019, 'Two Songs For The Weekend', and has played both by himself and with a full band. He has won songwriting competitions on Harmony Day and in his local area (Sutherland Shire), played at the NRL Girls Finals Series (St Mary's Football Stadium, NSW) and has performed at a number of small venues including the Valve Bar (Sydney, NSW), El Sol Mexican Bar, and the Brass Monkey (Cronulla, NSW)
Music is the one language everyone understands. It gives me joy, and an opportunity to make others joyful also!
To travel to entertain a crowd
Telling people about Jesus
'Wake Up Jeff' - The Wiggles
Don't listen to too many bands. But in regards to artists: John Mayer, Eric Clapton, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Buddy Guy, Josh Pyke, and Keith Urban...ALL BLUES BOYSSSSS and writers who can create the feelings of the heart, a warm word and/or sentence.
I want people to 'feel' connected to a song with words that mean something to them. Allowing me to connect them to me.
AMAZING! Let it rip...
I feel that the reality is, not everyone will be heard by a majority. Its the lucky few. To improve it: you can't. Just work it.
Pretty nice thus far
