Matt Stillert describes his sound as an “Alternative Blues Onslaught”, and considering the high energy of his live shows and the pool of blood and sweat he leaves on stage, this is an accurate description.

But there’s so much more to this Adelaide born troubadour. With his musical work branching deep into lyrical poetry, and a songwriting style that captures a unique look at the world. His musical ramblings range from soothing folk melodies and acapella, to high energy foot stomping blues rock, displaying a dynamic blend of roots music. His unique voice (Tom Waits, Dan Auerbach, Bob Dylan) and an unorthodox guitar sound, bring to life a treasure chest of original material. His debut 2012 release “Don’t Fear the Beard” demonstrated his promising debut, selling out the first and second pressings, as well as topping the unearthed roots charts and gaining some solid airtime on Triple J and community radio around Australia.

Matt is currently working on his first full album, aptly named “Shoe Boycotter”, have a listen to the first single release “Four diggers”
