For the last few days, I have Matt Corby’s new single, Resolution, playing on repeat. His third extended play, which will is titled the same, will be out this July completing the success of his two previous EPs. In Greece and UK, it will be available on iTunes from Monday 15th of July and in USA the following day. Matt has already released a video for the first single.

Corby started his career when he was only 16 years old and managed to take the 2nd place on Australian Idol. He has been compared to great musicians, such as Jeff Buckley and Nick Drake and his music is mainly acoustic with folk influence.

His first EP was named Made of Stone and included 3 songs. One year later, in 2011, he released the EP Into the Flames. The song Brother from this EP won the ARIA Award for Song of the Year and made Matt famous worldwide.

Since then, he has been titled the “Next Big Thing” and gave many concerts, with the highlight being his secret garden shows. His 4 out of 7 last concerts in Europe are sold out and his cover for Black Key’s song Lonely Boy became a hit, already.

While he is just only 22 Matt has managed to captivate the world with his melodies and gained a large fan base. The only thing to wait for now, will be his first personal album.

 

So, don’t you worry
You’ll be my resolution
Characters of no illusion
You’ll be my resolution
