Hello friends. Hope you are all doing well and good, hope this week is treating you nicely, cool let’s talk about Matt Corby.
Matt Corby, is one of Australia’s finest exports, and not only is he a beautiful, beautiful creature to look at, but… boy has pipes. He first showed his face during one of our prehistoric Australian Idol seasons, when he was fresh out the womb stunting a side fringe and a vest over his white t-shirt, and then promptly disappeared from the public eye for a couple of years.
He then reappeared with a full grown beard, a guitar, slightly blue-er, dreamy-er eyes and an arsenal of incredible, mind-numbing-ly amazing songs that give you shivers no matter what order you listen to them in.
I’ve definitely done a cover of his song Resolution and to date, it’s one of the most popular songs I’ve ever posted, and I definitely believe a lot of that is down to how incredible the song is.
You may also know his song Brother which is the pinnacle of all contemporary choreographer’s dancing repertoire, purely for the shivers you are guaranteed.
I’ve 100% included some of Matt’s songs throughout my blog, you may recognise his name popping up from time to time, because his songs are scattered generously throughout a lot of my playlists.
However, I was not aware of this song, Song For Interlude, probably because it isn’t on Spotify, and it’s live from his tour. Well, my friend who plays the drums for me, you may recall I mentioned him in my post all about my gig experience, is obsessed with the man. Not only has he shared with me many times that his brain would probably shut down if he met Matt in person, but he’s also sent me quite a few songs and videos that I’ve never seen or heard before.
Specifically the one I’m about to show you.
I have to apologise to my mate, considering I only watched the video a whole day after he told me to, and I have to apologise to myself, for willingly missing out on this magic.
That song, basically sums up the entirety of Matt Corby and what he means to the Australian public. Matt Corby is a national treasure and I dare anyone to tell me different.
That is all.
