I first met Matt Woosey around four years ago whilst studying at University. He would turn up at the open-mic nights and campus gigs: a quiet, polite and modest chap. He performs with his blues-infused acoustic guitar techniques and a gritty powerful vocal that demands your attention. He has played a gig every night for the past three years – give or take. A true hard-working musician.
