Matt Welch

"I could see this (Two Reasons) playing as the credits scroll on a big blockbuster movie"- BuffaBLOG

"He’s one of the major players on the authentic 80s synth pop scene"- Beatradar

Starfighter Dreaming "isn't just a track that sounds like it's from the eighties, it sounds like a HIT from that decade too"- Beatradar

Sepia Moon features "songs that want to be played on repeat. An excellent release" - DJ Mishka

"With warm and heartfelt vocals, Welch infuses a heartwarming effusiveness that makes these pressing compositions timeless" - Divide & Conquer 

 

Matt grew up in Darwin, the Top End of Australia. His childhood consisted of bare-footed antics and outback fossicking, which continues to shape his lyrics today. At 19, Matt moved to Melbourne and studied classical guitar, simultaneously fronting and composing for Fly South and The Smitten. He currently writes production music as a composer for various music publishers including Gargantuan Music, Spider Cues, Amadea Music Productions, Melodie Music and Music Mind Tracks. He also writes songs and collaborates with people all around the world as a Fiverr Pro and "Top Rated" songwriters/producer on the freelance platform as well as fronting his band, The Good Minus.


Career highlights include various music placements, winning the Judges Award for the Sing Sing East Songwriting Competition. His band's album was also chosen as feature album on Three D Radio and 2Bob Radio. As a guitarist he completed a Bachelor of Music (Honours) at The University of Melbourne, studied Sound Production (sound engineering) at RMIT, Music Performance (Jazz/Contemporary) at NMIT and was a semi-finalist in The Adelaide International Classical Guitar Competition. To date, he has completed over 400 music projects for clients around the world.
