My name is Matt Steady, and I'm a musician based in Leicester. Along with my wife and our children, we're foster carers and always have our hands full (6 children in the house at the moment!). I'm the main carer, and in brief moments I slip in a bit of music!

I play a variety of music, from Celtic, folk, blues to heavy rock! My main instruments are guitars and violin, but I'll try my hand at anything.

I've poured my soul into my latest album. "Presence" is my heart crying out when I ran out of words. The album features ten instrumentals that cover a wide range of emotions, including joy, sorrow, perseverance, and even mischief. It draws inspiration from a variety of genres, including prog rock, Celtic and world music, folk, metal, and classical. I've taken risks with this album, pushing myself to learn new techniques and incorporate new sounds while staying true to my signature style. "Presence" is not background music. It's a one-of-a-kind immersive encounter that invites you to close your eyes and let the music take over.

I'm not alone in this project - I've teamed up with the incredibly talented Terl Bryant on drums, Phil March on bass, and Phil Stiles (Final Coil) to bring you an unparalleled listening experience. We've put our hearts and souls into this project, and we're excited to share it with you. We're going to set your speakers on fire!

In addition to the album itself, I'm also thrilled to offer limited edition merchandise, including vinyl, with stunning artwork shot with Nick Tsiatinis in the Lake District. I've gone all out on this project, and I'm committed to making it a success.

I believe that "Presence" is something special, and I'm confident that you'll agree. We've created something that's unlike anything you've ever heard before. So join me on this journey, and let's make some magic happen together.

Reviews for "Presence":

Dave Bainbridge

Matt is a really nice guitarist, with a lovely sound and feel, who makes music that is filled with passion and depth. 'Presence' is a striking album.

Dave Brons

Matt is a great guitar player and a fantastic human being, and this comes across in his music. I loved his track Deep calls to Deep. I found the music uplifting - just like the man himself!

Steve Pledger

As a lover of accomplished and atmospheric guitar, ‘Deep Calls To Deep’ is a gift from the gods! The musicianship across the board is sublime; a genuinely moving musical experience.

Phil Stiles

A musically adventurous album, packed with Matt's typically evocative guitar playing, it pushed me out of my comfort zone! [Photo: Matt Negus]

What my listeners say:

Aggy F

You can't listen to it in the background... Each song wakes you up and DEMANDS to be listened to! My goodness, some of the guitar playing left me breathless.

Nicholas K

Restrained elegance with punches of fury sweep you away to the musical world Matt created

Ralph B

I've been enjoying this album immensely. I often compare your guitar playing to Dave Gilmour, but I can also hear a touch of Robert Fripp. The tougher-sounding tracks like 'Reign' & 'Perforate' have echoes of 'Red'-era King Crimson about them.

Edward E

I've just listened to the entire thing with a cup of tea and some chocolate biscuits. You've excelled yourself, Matt. Brilliant work! It didn't need chocolate biscuits...

Chris T

Presence transported me over mountains and valleys, over desert dunes and ocean waves, over lakes, rivers and through forest glades, to outer space and other worlds. Bravo! It’s stunning.

Karen F

I feel like I’m in a lighthouse watching and listening to large rolling waves crash against the rocks, but I’m inside safe and sound.

Cameron Bird

Nice work! Lots of feels and a stack of emotion poured into this piece.

John Reed

For lovers of Joe Satriani, Steve Vai, Yngwie Malmsteen etc., Matt's absolutely excelled himself.

Handmade Leather Notebook - OUT OF STOCK!

A beautiful handmade leather notebook, with rough textured paper. This is EXACTLY the same as the one I use writing my albums, writing down my lyric, thoughts, mix notes etc. So inspiring - the texture of the paper just makes you want to write more! The cover and leather thong are evocative and it's a lovely thing to use.
I will write a personalised message to you on the front page, or leave it blank if you prefer.

These are the actual test prints that come back from the manufacturer for Matt to listen to and perform quality control. They are white label and are in a blank white sleeve. Matt has signed and numbered the labels - numbers 1 to 10. These are therefore a truly fantastic collector's piece.
