Sacred Ground and Language Of Your Heart - out now.
Further dates coming soon
Blurring the lines between Folktronica, Electronica and Ambient Soundscapes, Matt Calder's sonic pallet has been described by BBC Introducing as
"harmonic rich, intricate, compelling music".
Writing with classic song structures, but also valuing the virtues of improvisation and experimentalism, Matt's raw, tender singer-songwriter territory often gives way to darker, thicker ambient soundscapes, and vocals veer from expansive and measured to blurred and textured - just slightly unsanded at the edges - giving the music an often hazy, woozy quality that's both disarming and beautiful.
His unique use of the Hang, Handpan, and acoustic textures combined with Kora, subtle electronica and multi-layered loops, makes for music that is sturdy yet delicate, otherworldly but familiar.
