Matt Stevens is a musician and composer from North London. An instrumental artist, he uses an acoustic guitar and sampler to create multi layered tracks live. This is often called Live Looping. His music has been described as “a guitar orchestra”. He plays live all over the UK and listens to Sonic Youth, Carcass, Nick Drake, Cardiacs and King Crimson.

Matt just released his 4th album “LUCID” on Esoteric Antenna. It took three years to complete this masterpiece. An impressive list of guest-musicians appear on the album, among them are at Mastelotto (King Crimson),Lorenzo Feliciati (Naked Truth) and Jem Godfrey (Frost). The result is an impressive album with influences of prog-heroes like King Crimson and Jethro Tull.
