Our guest today is Matt Scullion an Australiana Folk singer songwriter that is known in the industry as a songwriter to the stars having his songs recorded by the likes of Lee and Tania Kernaghan, Sara Storer, Adam Harvey, Jayne Denham, Amber Lawrence and Cold Chisel to name but a few- 22 of those going to the NO 1 spot on the country music charts. Songwriting has always been a passion for Matt.
Matt says he remembers reading the small print on the back of records and realising at an early age the singer didn’t always write the song.
Growing up in the small south coast country town of Ulladulla Matt joined his first band at 16 and the transition to country music was a progressive one that would take Matt from Darwin to Tamworth and eventually lead him to Nashville where he spent years living out his songwriting dreams and learning from the best Music City had to offer.
Travelling abroad has really given Matt a greater appreciation of his home. It’s like the Eucalypt smells sweeter, the Kookaburras laugh louder and the Aussie lingo is thicker. You tend to take those simple things for granted until you miss them.
