Having worked with Matt on our collaboration 'The Monster' I can honestly say he is a rare talent. Matt is a diverse artist to say the least. His acoustic guitar & rich vocal can be applied to many genre's & he does so with great ease. It's always a happy, fun working environment when in session with Matt!

My friends were guests at a wedding you performed at yesterday. They said you were very, very good! Well done Matt!

Matt Bate - Doing what you do best sitting down and singing... Fantastic!!! Thank you so much for entertaining us so brilliantly at our recent party. We loved your music and so did all our friends, you were great during the 'percussion session' understanding our crowds taste you really knew how to please. Even if you were a diva moving the dance floor! You're a real joy to be around and we would whole heartedly recommend you to anyone wanting their party to go with a bang. Thank you so much.

Matt has a FABULOUS voice!
Julie Samantha Hunt
I love listening to Matt live, the diversity of music, the quality of the vocals and guitar playing are as good as it gets. As a bit of a “geek” when it comes to sound production/mixing/equalization etc. I am always impressed by this aspect of the show as well, the equipment is always working well within capacity and, therefore, sounding good. Add to this the fact that Matt is one of the few singers who has the ability to smile almost constantly while singing and you have just about everything you could ever want in a live performance.
Jon Thompson

We are grateful to Matt for providing an outstanding performance and entertainment at this year's Leamington Summer Festival. We look forward to working with him again in the future.
Massive thank you to Matt for performing at our beautiful friends wedding. Matt was a suprise wedding gift to the bride and groom and nobody in the bridal party knew about it so was quite something to see him introduce himself and started playing his set - a fantastic musician and really likeable guy. The look on the bride and grooms faces was priceless and they have since said that it absolutely made an already wonderful day, perfect! Thank you so much Matt for being part of such a special occasion, everybody loved you and your songs and we would highly recommend you to anybody that wants live music. Absolute superstar!
