Matt Johnson is one of the most successful independent singer in the UK. At only 27 years old he has had success in the entertainment industry and achieved goals beyond his years. Starting out at the young age of 10, Matt began to gain invaluable experience. He’s had success in musical theatre, with his highlights including playing the Artful Dodger in Cameron Mackintoshes’ West End production of Oliver Twist, and a principle role in ‘Les Miserables’, the world’s most successful musical.
At 16, Matt had an experience that would change his life and perception of music forever. He auditioned, along with 130,000 others, for a place in a five piece boy band on ITV’s ‘Popstars The Rivals’. Matt went on to win a place in the winning group, One True Voice. The band had success with their first single, ‘Sacred Trust’ when it reached number two in the UK official charts.
Three years later, Matt wanted to try something new and formed a Pop/Rock band called State Warning, with their peak success being supporting act to musical legends The Who and the multi platinum album selling band, Keane. Over the past five years Matt has performed at over 1000’s of gigs, including the privilege of performing for many now happily married couples across the UK.
Matt spends his time marketing himself as a songwriter and plans to release a song through iTunes in the near future. Due to his extreme popularity, Matt spends most weekends performing at weddings and functions, where he performs at 120 to 140 a year. Our advice is to enquire early if you are thinking of hiring Matt for your function as dates go extremely fast.
