EP parts 1 & 2
“Matt John’s youthful looks belay a mature and soulful take on music. The seven tracks which make up ‘EP parts 1 & 2′ are an eclectic mix of blues-Americana delivered with a confidence and assurity not often found these days.
Opening with the stadium filling ‘Hey You’ before moving onto pure swamp rock in ‘Devil’ each track feels almost casual in its brilliance – hiding the long hours of sweat and tears each must have cost ! ‘Trading Friends’ finishes off Part 1 leaving the listener wanting much more….
Part 2 kicks off with the rootsy ‘Gold & Silver’, swiftly moving on to the infectiously catchy ‘You & I’. ‘Carry Me’ and ‘Tumbleweed’ finish off the set, leaving just one question : when can we hear more?”

” Matt John – You And I
I know little of Matt, except he is from Swansea has recorded with members of The Storys and plays classic rock with the leftfield ambition of a Welshman masquerading as a member of Arcade Fire. Which is a very good thing indeed. “
