Bio

Songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and academic, Matt Hill has spent many years orbiting the music industry circus. Best known for his delicate and beguiling keyboard lines in the group amphibian, Matt released his most recent solo album, Stars and the Moon and Satellites in 2018. With echos of Nick Drake and Bon Iver, this music lies somewhere between the worlds of ambient post rock and contemporary folk. 

Matt’s solo album, Warm Keep Warm, won several NCEIA Dolphin Awards, including Best Album, Best Jazz Track and Best New Age Track. Since then Matt has released two vinyl albums with amphibian, composed the music for the NORPA production Engine, and produced soundscapes for internationally renowned media artist Grayson Cooke

Based in the fertile creative hub of the Northern Rivers in NSW, Australia, Matt is the coordinator of Southern Cross University’s Contemporary Music program and has a doctorate in music composition.
