FROM HIS FIRST ALBUM - "It's difficult not to compare Matt Flinders with Frank Sinatra ... or Dean Martin ... or 'The Velvet Frog' - Mel Torme. But it always comes out Matt Flinders! Which is to say that Matt has all the 'star' qualities of the greats; the ability to take a song, mould it, and make it his own. No matter which version you've heard before, the one that lives most vividly in your mind is the Matt Flinders version. ALL THE SONGS HAVE THE THOUGHT-PROVOKING LYRICS AND BIG-BAND ARRANGEMENTS WHICH ONLY SINGERS OF MATT FLINDERS' CAPABILITIES CAN REALLY HANDLE WELL. AND WHAT'S MORE YOU CAN HEAR EVERY WORD! If Matt Flinders sings like a man who's been around ... he has! His musical experience covers three continents; Australia coast to coast, Tokyo and London. Matt sings about time, distance and love; isn't that what most great songs are really about? If Matt Flinders sings it like he means it ... he does!"
Matt can be contacted at the address 4 Sunlake Place, Tennyson, South Australia. 5022
