Matthew Barker

  • Whalebone Brewing Co 27 Patterson Way Exmouth Australia (map)

Multi-instrumentalist and singer/songwriter Matthew Barker is no stranger to the music industry even though his name may be foreign to some. Performing under the pseudonym “The Buckseats for the last five years, Matthew has written, produced and released 4 EP’s under The Bucketseats name.

Matthew has decided to step out from behind The Bucketseats project and gifting to us his laid back sounds under the Matthew Barker Music brand. Matthew is an entirely self-taught vocalist and guitarist. Years of experience as a solo performer while extensive gigging has made him an extraordinary live musician and skilled performer.

The decision to release his original music under his own name was not an easy one but Matthew’s confidence in his song writing has grown considerably. He no longer feels the need to hide behind the pseudonym and while turning himself into a “brand” is daunting he hopes it gives him more confidence and appreciation for what he has achieved so far as well as an added determination to always strive to improve his writing and performing.
