Matt McGinn is a singer, songwriter & producer from Hilltown in Co. Down. His 5th and latest album release ‘Time Well Spent’ was RTÉ Radio 1 and BBC Radio Ulster’s ‘Album of the Week’ at the beginning of 2022 and features a wealth of incredible musicians like legendary fiddle player Eliza Carthy MBE and award winning folk singer Aoife Scott.
Matt was named ‘one to watch’ in 2020 by Hotpress Magazine, and rightly so. Since then he had 4 singles top The BBC Radio Ulster and RTÉ Radio 1 radio airplay charts.
His album ‘Lessons of War’ received much acclaim. The lead track ‘Bubblegum’ ft. Ciara O’Neill, which was written with Mick Flannery, prompted BBC 6 Music’s Tom Robinson to ask the question “…now wasn’t that just extraordinary?…”.
Matt McGinn is currently nominated for a Hotpress award for best Irish songwriter alongside the likes of Mick Flannery & Dermot Kennedy. A fan of Matt’s music is none other than Christy Moore who said “Matt, I’m enjoying your new tunes…as before, you never fail to deliver the pure drop.”
An experienced live performer, Matt has built an incredible rapport with his audiences and can bring the intimacy of an Irish kitchen to even the biggest of venues. Legendary Radio DJ Bob Harris said “I’ve seen Matt play live, he’s fantastic.”
