EDITORS’ NOTES

The debut from Australian crooner Matt Corby is a richly orchestrated throwback to the warm, whimsical grooves of the ‘70s, right down to the flute solos. Slinking through fluttering organs one minute (“Belly Side Up”), then quavering over smoky piano pop the next (“Wrong Man”), Corby’s voice is a honey-soaked baritone that’s unafraid to reach for both the high and low notes (dig his nearly subsonic coo on “We Could be Friends”). The music is equally ambitious, strutting between lush soul, sexy R&B, and spacey funk. Think Marvin Gaye by way of James Blake.

Matt Corby- Telluric

takenscratch,

I have to say that I am very impressed. I have been a fan of Matt for a long time and I loved his older music. When I heard Soothe Lady Wine for the first time, I was a bit worried. I thought Matt's old style suited him perfectly. I like the new song, but I don't think anything can compare to Resolution, Brother, Runaway, etc. With the new album finally out I have to admit that I am loving the new feel that he is bringing. There is not much music out there that sounds like this. It is very original and mysterious and I'm excited to see where Matt Corby goes next.

It's gonna be amazing!!! 🙌🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼

Larico92,

Everything that Matt comes out with is amazing! And this is no exception. I can't wait for the full album! It's gonna be so diverse

About Matt Corby

Matt Corby is a raspy-voiced Australian singer and songwriter with several charting, award-winning original songs. Raised on gospel music and later developing a fondness for Crosby, Stills, Nash, & Young, Corby played locally in his native Sydney and toured with a church band before finishing second on Australian Idol in 2007.

Scorpio Music released his intimate, acoustic guitar-based debut EP, Song For…, in 2009, after which Corby relocated to London, England and signed with the Communion label. They issued the EPs My False and Transition to Colour in 2010. The songwriter soon had some of his tunes licensed for American and Australian television series, including Home and Away and Brothers and Sisters. Meanwhile, he performed at the SXSW music festival in in the U.S. in addition to shows in Australia and the U.K., the latter of which included support dates with Elbow. A fourth EP, Into the Flame, arrived in late 2011 and featured a bluesier sound with more forceful vocals.

By the end of 2012, Into the Flame had been certified platinum multiple times over in Australia, where it reached number three. His next single, "Resolution," from a 2013 EP of the same name, also hit the Top Five of the singles chart and won an ARIA for Song of the Year. The EP Live on the Resolution Tour followed before the end of the year. Corby reemerged in the fall of 2015 with the soulful single "Monday" from his full-length debut, Telluric, issued by Universal Music Australia and Atlantic in March 2016. ~ Marcy Donelson
