Matt Elliott celebrates 20 years of Drinking Songs

Matt Elliott is an English composer, lyricist, singer and musician (based in France for over 20 years) who began his career with the Third Eye Foundation, whose musical genesis was more electronic music.

His solo career began in 2003 with the album The Mess We Made, which immediately received the highest praise from specialized critics. In 2005, an artist’s always-difficult second album arrived. This time, Matt Elliott exceeds all expectations with the album Drinking Songs (which celebrates 20 years since its release).

Continuing his musical experiences, in Drinking Songs, we can hear a greater influence of Balkan music or even cabaret. Matt Elliott’s dark and serious voice and his lyrics inspired by the lives of all of us in constant loops and twists chain us into a sonic sequence that is difficult to abandon. Even today, songs such as “The Kursk”, “The Guilty Party” or “Trying To Explain” are religiously requested by the public who attend concerts.

These concerts celebrating 20 years of Drinking Songs (there is only one more scheduled for March 1st in Madrid), will feature more musicians on stage together with Matt Elliott. In this case, in addition to the composer/singer on voice, guitar, effects and saxophone, we will also hear a double bass and a piano.

A tour in 2025, also just about the Drinking Songs album, is currently being prepared, taking into account the record news surrounding this twentieth anniversary.
