Just when we thought we’d done our best with 2020 and it was time to close up shop and get planning for next year we had an incredible opportunity to present one more gem of a show for all our fans! Matt Cornell and Brooke supple were coming to SA to play a big outdoor full band show but both were as keen to do an up-close and personal performance in The Barn as we were to book them in!
Matt Cornell is a talented singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist. He has worked and toured with the likes of Richard Clapton, Shannon Noll, Jenny Morris, Damien Leith and iconic rock band, The Baby Animals and most recently with Australian Country superstar Adam Brand.
Having already established a reputation as an impressively energetic and engaging live performer, who undertakes the rarely seen practice of playing bass while performing lead vocals, the release of Matt Cornell on September 5, 2014 sees him make a very impressive music statement as a recording artist and songwriter.
“Matt Cornell is first and foremost a wonderful musician. He writes songs that speak to the Australian heartland. He writes about real people with real emotion,” says Jenny Morris.
Now, as an artist who has found his true home in country music, Matt Cornell takes to the genre’s core values with beautifully written new songs and uniquely sublime vocals on this album.
“This album has been almost two years in the making, I’ve given it my all, it’s a great representation of who I am as a person and as an artist. I’ve collaborated with some amazingly talented people and I’m so proud of this record. These songs mean a lot to me and I hope they touch you in some way,” says Matt Cornell.
Matt Cornell is produced by acclaimed multi-award winning producer Matt Fell (Sara Storer, McAlister Kemp, John Williamson, Ian Moss). The album was mixed in LA by Paul Lani (Robbie Williams, Prince, U2, Shania Twain). The album features the Top #20 Australian Country singles ‘Days To Remember’ and ‘Give It To Me’ plus the new single ‘Outta This Town’ – now at CMC & radio stations.
Matt Cornell has graced the stages of SXSW in AustinTexas, New York’s CBGB’s, London’s The Borderline and Sheppard’s Bush Empire, to The Roxy and The Viper Room in LA.
Matt Cornell has an intriguing family musical history. His uncle George Assange was the first Australian to land a US record deal. While Matt’s father Wayne Cornell was the lead singer of The Deltones back in the 60’s and sings on the famous South Sydney Rabbitohs anthem, ‘Glory Glory To South Sydney’.
The Rabbitohs have a proud indigenous heritage, as does Matt. His granddad was born on Thursday Island.
“Aussie country fans are about to find out what all the buzz is about because this album [Matt Cornell] is full of great songs!” says Adam Brand.
Performing to over 80,000 people at 250+ shows per year across Europe, America, the Maldives and Australasia, Brooke Supple has been hailed as a true, organic entertainer. Having written, recorded and co-produced commercially released number one tracks and self-penned EP’s, she has also been a vocalist and guitarist for international acts such as Sinead O’Connor and The Corrs, plus backing for Ellie Goulding and supports for Jimmy Barnes and Kav Temperley of Eskimo Joe fame.
