Matt Tonks

The shows of singer and guitarist Matt Tonks have earned a reputation for a unique haunting power with his lyrics, songs and instrumental music leading audiences far from the beaten track.

Two time finalist for APRA Songwriter and Best Live Performance Awards (MusicOz Awards) Tonks takes flight into an often unexpected world of mesmerising, spontaneous sound.

In 2014 Matt returned to Europe and the US, playing solo shows at Ronnie Scotts (London), Paris, Los Angeles (The House of Blues), Austin and Nashville.  He is a past winner of the Drum Media Alternative Artist of the Year (MusicOz) and was recently included on the ABC Music release Under the Covers - Seductive Sounds for a Late Late Night. His releases include  The Heavy Yen Project (Album 2012),  Islands of String & Skin (Album 2011), Eat Yourself (Album 2008), Blanket (EP 2008) and  Synaesthesia (Album 2007).
