Hailing from sunny Perth, Western Australia, Cal has supported and played along side acts such as Ash Grunwald, Matt Gresham, Carla Geneve, Blue Shaddy, Ruby Boots, Stella Donnelly, Lloyd Spiegel and many more appearing at festivals such as Nannup Music Festival, Blues At Bridgetown, Denmark Festival of the Voice, Fremantle Winter Music Festival and countless micro festivals.
Having played in bands throughout teens and twenties, the last ten years have seen Cal release three independent EPs, win Western Australian Music Song Of The Year for Blues and Roots in 2011 and be nominated for the same category in 2012.
Since the release of 2011 EP Overdrive, recently remastered and released on Spotify, Matt has spent much time and many miles playing gigs and touring the coast of WA.
Matt can be found performing original gutsy folk blues in solo or band mode around the scene in Perth under the moniker Matt Cal and writing/ performing with Mystic Rebellion, a three piece progressive electro roots collective drawing on Tijuana Cartel, Darkside and the guitar stylings of David Gilmour and Ry Cooder to create something fresh and grooving heavy on the synths.
Matt is a presenter on WA's premier alternative community radio station RTRFM 92.1 and you may also find him performing classic covers around the place as Benny Harlem, playing pubs, private functions and parties.
