Matthew decided to step out from behind The Bucketseats project, gifting to us his laid back sounds under the Matthew Barker Music brand. Matthew is an entirely self-taught vocalist and guitarist. Years of experience as a solo performer while extensively gigging has made him an extraordinary live musician and skilled performer. Matthew has released 2 EP’s under his name and is currently preparing for his third.

Matthew has recorded with singer/songwriters; Carl Wockner, Ryan Giles and Tessa as well as Brisbane based punk outfit Army of Champions.
