Biography – Tom Matthias – Singer & Acoustics
The Beatles was a eureka moment for me, I wouldn’t have picked up a guitar if it wasn’t for them.
From then on I started listening to bands like The Rolling Stones & The kinks
Lyrical idols of mine are John Lennon, Morrissey, Alex Turner, Ian Curtis, but I love music all round from The Fall to Cilla black.
The track to influence me was Love Me Do by The Beatles.
I started out playing solo sets and doing circuits and occasional songwriting but it was always the goal to one day front a band for myself.
Favourite song : Flyte – Heaven (talking heads)
