Byron’s new road: the good and not so

After more than 30 years of talk, debate, disagreements, tears and political gridlock, Byron Bay has a new road to divert traffic from the CBD to the southern end of town.

Mattie Barker emerged from the fertile Gold Coast – Northern Rivers creative music communities in 2006 and has been generating a ground swell of support locally since. Drawing his influences from a wide spectrum of styles and sounds; acoustic roots and blues, reggae chill, to Cat Stevens style folk, Mattie continues to deliver a heartfelt one-man-band style performance.

With a warmth that resonates out to his audiences, Mattie Barker keeps the tradition of Harry Manx, Xavier Rudd and Jack Johnson alive and fresh with music directly from the heart, often leaving his audiences inspired with his ernest lyrical content and sincere admiration for each and every soul.

See Mattie at the Cabarita Beach Sports Club on Saturday.
