Writer, musician, lover of life and all things related to eating and drinking.
These days, you'd be forgiven for expecting the same old sounds from a bearded, bare-foot nomad wielding an acoustic guitar. But trust me, it would be a crime to call Adelaide's Matt Stillert anything resembling typical.
Well known in Adelaide for his foot-stampin', soulful music, Matt Stillert has been playing his original rock, blues and folk tunes in our fair city for many a year. Stillert genuinely brims over with love, which translates seamlessly in his live performance. Stillert's carefree vibrance is balanced by well-trained vocals and a bangin' slide-guitar sound. His music is engaging, honest and raw.
Matt Stillert will be launching his debut EP 'Don't Fear the Beard' on Friday 22 January at Tuxedo Cat, 199-200 North tce, Adelaide. Tickets are $16 pre-sale (see venues below) or $20 at the door.
Less an EP launch than a mini-festival, Stillert will be joined by mates from Adelaide and further afield - check the line-up:
