For many years a prolific writer and co-publisher of lo-fi Australian street magazine, Lucky, mattyb began putting music to his words in January 2010 under the name Water Music.

In a short time, his lonely yet optimistic songs of heartbreak, death, passion and the Universe took him across the United States, with a European tour set for June and July before he relocates permanently to New York. It’s a do-it-yourself philosophy, a hark back to those Good Ol’ Days where a man could jump a train with a guitar and find the meaning of life on a long and lonely track.
