Victor Hugo once wrote that music expresses the things that cannot be said but cannot remain silent. Our favourite songs are the ones that tell our deepest stories for us. These songs capture time, giving voice to our loves and fears and yearnings. Acoustic artist Matt Glass knows this to be true. He broke out onto the scene with his debut album Famous Last Words in 2011, with the single Setting Sun leaping to number 1 on the Triple J Unearthed Roots Charts. Making a name on the Melbourne underground scene performing at iconic venues such as The Espy and the Wesley Anne with his band The Loose Cannons, Matt Glass is going from strength to strength and recently took out first prize in the Snowy Mountains of Music Festival’s online busking competition.
