Join us for an upbeat evening of live, vibrant indie pop music, with thought-provoking comedy and stories about coming to a place of good mental health.
2018: rather than see a psychiatrist, Matt, a musician, with no theatrical experience, chose to perform an unwritten show at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

Matt delivers personal, difficult, and eclectic stories interjected with original songs performed with vocals and guitar.
Nothing is left to implication or to whispers, he talks directly to the audience conjuring an atmosphere of openness and understanding. Split into two halves the show moves fluidly between spoken word and music – a mix of heartfelt stories, self-deprecating humour and original songs. And, there’s always time for a chat post-show
