Matt Stillert is an Adelaide born troubadour who was raised on a healthy diet of Led Zeppelin, Neil Young and Joni Mitchell. This was followed by an obsession with Tom Waits – and later delving deeper into the roots of the blues and developing his unique style of Alternative Blues Folk music.

wp Matt_Returns#1With a raw, dynamic style of soulful, foot-stomping blues/roots music, Matt Stillert has a massive catalogue of original songs, from soulful poetic folk melodies, to high energy blues/rock grooves. ‘The songwriting is the most important aspect for me. Each one of my songs has its own unique energy and individual character.’

Over the past two years Matt has had continued success on Triple J’s Unearthed Roots chart maintaining #1 positions and ongoing airplay. After hitting the road in 2012, has been performing around Queensland and NSW and was well received at this year’s Bluesfest.

His live show is an onslaught of wailing vocals, finger-picked slide guitar, and raw stomping grooves drenched in soul. Guaranteed to get all blues fans fired up. Do yourself a favour and get to one of the Blues Troubadour’s unforgettable shows.
