Matt is a freelance writer at Guitar Player, Thomann.de, Guitar World, MusicRadar and many more music and gear-related publications. Having played guitar for 20 years, it's fair to say he knows a thing or two about the humble six-string, and you'll most likely find him in the rehearsal studio, hunched over caveman-style, tweaking settings on his pedalboard. Matt currently plays in Manchester-based alt-rockers JACKALS and when he's not at his guitar, he likes to spend his time in his home studio with his two cats, collaborating on alternative hip-hop tracks with fellow creatives from the North-West of England.
