Newcastle boy Matt Parsons has been in to music from his early years at school. In fact, the seventeen year old’s life changing moment was when he bought his first guitar. He taught himself to play that guitar and now also plays the drums, harmonica, piano and didgeridoo. He is often called up to play at local festivals and solo gigs. This young and talented muso wants to make his music count like his favourite artists, John Butler and Xavier Rudd.
