Upon leaving Hurtwood Matt began working for record producer James McMillan where amongst other projects he co-produced and performed on albums for American Idol singers Fantastia Barrino and Clay Aitken.
Like fellow Hurtwood student Dan Higgott, Matt was mentored by West End sound engineer Jon Clarence who came in to work on some of Hurtwood’s bigger shows. Through Jon Matt has since worked on various West End shows including the Blue Man Group, The Lion King and the 2007 revival of Joseph and the Technicolour Dreamcoat.
Matt now owns his own recording studio where he writes and develops original music for singers and bands. He is currently working with 2008 X-Factor finalist Laura White on original material as well as musically directing her live performances. Matt also works as an MD in theatre where his show credits include productions of Les Miserables, We Will Rock You and Rent.
He has also co-produced the last few Hurtwood Albums.
Matt says “Hurtwood House really gave me the necessary opportunities, support and facilities to break into the music and theatre industries. It is through these opportunities that I have been able to make a career out of doing what I love and I am very grateful for that.”
