So much going on right now! 😬 I just wanna say thank you for following the journey here. 🙏🏻 Remember, you can listen to my podcast and loads more amazing new music over at @mainlymusicpod. 🎧 In fact, I’m doing a show tonight. Leave a comment with a band you’d like to hear, I’ll play it and give you a shout out too. 🎙️


29

At this amazing venue tonight to see @thestruts & @thesecondsons. 🎸Check out my Insta Stories for the good stuff. ✌🏻

It’s been a mad few weeks but I’ve just got round to putting together this little video from @greatescapefest. ☀️ 🎶 Live clips from @thexcerts, @weareyonaka, @ferrisandsylvestermusic & @thewanderingheartsmusic. ✌🏻

I gave @lindsayell a call to chat about #TheContinuumProject. 🎸 Hear the full conversation including how the album came about and how @johnmayer found out about it on this week’s bonus edition of the @mainlymusicpod. 🎧 #LindsayEll #JohnMayer

Happy weekend, everyone! 🙌🏻 What are you guys doing? I’m gonna see family, sit by the pool, eat good food and drink good wine. 🍷 Might even take my jacket off. 🧥


53

I’ve been back in the studio today recording some drum parts for the music I’ve been making recently. 🥁 Big thanks to @samboxell for the time. It’s coming together. 👊🏻 (📷 - @shootwithdan)


10

Here I am looking ECSTATIC to record a new episode of @mainlymusicpod. 🤦🏻‍♂️ I’m getting sent so much new music from you guys at the moment. Keep it coming. ✌🏻 Remember the #MainlyMusic playlist on #Spotify and the podcast that goes out every Sunday evening. 🎙️ If you hijacked the show, what song would you play first? 🎧


18

Nice to catch up with @martinemccutcheon at the premiere of @bromleyboysfilm last week. 🎥


10

2 BBQs and a roast dinner in 48 hours. 🤤 Also, before recording the show this week, I ate 2 and a half steaks. 😶 Makes me feel like I did in this pic... That episode just went live. It’s got music from @therollingstones, @paulsteel, @iamjustloud and more. Hear it over at @mainlymusicpod. 🎧 Hope you all had a good bank holiday weekend. What did you get up to? 👀


16

On a real journey of discovery at the moment. The point where self awareness meets self belief can be a conflict. I’m learning to flip that and marry the two. I wanna be aware of my shortcomings as much as what I’m good at. If self belief is greater than that, you’ll lose perspective and end up in a bubble. But if it falls in line, you have a recipe for contentment and a place for passion to win. 👊🏻 Perhaps this is deeper than I’d usually go on an Instagram post but why not, ey? ☺️ Enough of you that follow me would benefit from this too. Happy Saturday. Truly. X


42

I’m so tempted to start a blog or something called ‘The Mashed Potato Diaries’. 😂 I haven’t got time but I love mash so much. Here it is on top of a shoulder of lamb. 😋 Can’t remember where this was but that’s why we need ‘The Mashed Potato Diaries’! 🍴Gimme a ☝🏻if you love mash. #Mash #MashedPotato #Yum


47

Enjoying some pre summer sun in Brighton. ☀️ A @greatescapefest special of the Mainly Music podcast comes out tomorrow evening. Follow @mainlymusicpod for deets! 🎧 #TGE18


15

Ready for a massive first day of the @greatescapefest. ✌🏻 Check the stories to peek at who I’m seeing. 👀


13

“Show me where I start. Find a horse and cart. I'm just a country boy; country boy at heart.” 👨🏻🌾 At the end of an incredible day full of music with amazing friends. ❤️


12

Surrender to what is. Let go of what was. Have faith in what will be. 😌

When life gives you lemons in water, send it back. Hate em. 🍋

TEASER! Matt is back from the recording studio! 🎧 There’s music from @thewanderingheartsmusic, #Avicii and @blackhoneyuk. 🎶 We ring @themuncle to chat about his new EP and there’s more international podsnacks. 🍫 And if that wasn’t enough, we also share some exciting ‘Mainly Music’ news. 👀 Episode drops at 6pm UK time. 👊🏻


8

“International Come To Work Dressed As Matt Day” 🤦🏼‍♀️ In other news, we’ll be live on Instagram this evening before recording this week’s show. 🎙️ Who’s joining? 👀


20

One of our faves, @themuncle, has a new EP out called ‘Off’. It’s the follow up to the ‘On’ EP and as expected, it’s an absolute beaut. Go check it out. 🎧


3

What’s the best thing to happen to you so far this week? 👀 I know it’s only Tuesday but for me it’s the latest @themuncle EP coming out. 🎧 Although that could be topped if Liverpool finish the job off tomorrow night in Rome and make the final of the Champions League. ⚽️ #Nervous (📷 - @a_girlwhotravels)


33

ARCHIVE FOOTAGE! Pre pod! NOV 2016. 🎧 This was the first day we ever worked together. I (Matt) was on Virgin Radio for the first time and Sarah was producing. ✌🏻 It was actually my first time on radio full stop! Things are a bit different now! 😝


20

Throwback to the snow hack. Tag someone you would throw a snowball at. ❄️ 😝


25

Did I miss #oldheadshotday? Because, ya know... there’s this... 👀 Who else was on MySpace?!


46

“I'll never be alone. I'll never hit the stone.
There is a hope that will carry me through to the end.” 🙏🏻


12

I’m reconnecting with my music. Not here (although you may not know I went to music school in Nashville) but at @whisperingbob’s with @milesmh at the helm. 🙌🏻 So I’ve basically got Nashville at my fingertips in the English countryside. If you want to follow the progress, check out my Insta Stories. X


28

Good to chat to @chrismoylesofficial at the @batthemusical gala night. What a guy. 👊🏻 Even if he did ‘forget’ to get me a drink in at the bar... 😝 // 📷 - @daveburt


6

Hey you! Comment below with your favourite bit from this week’s sleep deprived pod! 😴 Here’s Matt less than impressed with his #PodSnacks. 😏 He also apologises for the amount of singing in this week’s show. 🎤 🤣


20

Possibly the latest podcast recording ever (post @batthemusical afterparty...) BUT it’s worth it for the music from @towersoflondonband, @thestruts and #Nirvana. ✌🏻 Should Matt start ‘The Mashed Potato Diaries’...? 🧐 Warning: this episode may include sleep deprived madness! 🤪

17

A few days late perhaps, but happy birthday to @damonalbarn. 🎈 I fell in love with @blurofficial the first time I heard the Parklife album. Modern Life Is Rubbish is also one of my favourite records ever. 🙌🏻 This clip really has nothing to do with any of that but it’s reminded me we’re due a Blur session on the pod very soon. 🎧 Listen to the rest of this episode by clicking the link in the bio. ✌🏻😘
