The music of former Smoke Feathers singer Matthew Falloon has been compared to Paul Simon and Jackson Browne by Uncut magazine, his songwriting has been praised as "exceptional" by Maverick magazine, and BBC Radio 2's Janice Long says he is "brilliant". His new album Do No Harm has been championed by BBC 6 Music's Chris Hawkins and was named best album of the year so far by The Very Thing blogger Simon Rickards. An accomplished guitarist and singer, Matthew has performed live on national TV and radio, toured the UK, Europe and the Caribbean, and played live with Dodgy, Natty, Shura, Blue Rose Code, Hiatus, Samantha Whates and Charlene Soraia. You can find his music on iTunes, Spotify, Bandcamp, Amazon and Apple Music.

Vispers

Vispers is a cutting-edge alternative/indie-rock troubadour outfit based in Tunbridge Wells, Kent. It is masterminded by Matt Bassett, which is another way of saying that Vispers is a thinly veiled distraction from the fact that Matt Bassett is a white boy with a guitar, doling out bare feelings in three-to-four minute chunks.

When, as a fifteen year old girl growing up in downtown São Paulo, he realised he could pass off songs that seem to be about one thing (e.g. ghosts, criminals, space) but are ACTUALLY about another (i.e. fancying people) as 'metaphors', he knew pseudo-punk poet-pop was his calling. Eight years later Matt has decided he should therefore actually play live. 

Oasis and The Libertines sparked and sealed Matt's love for music. Predictably other influences include Arctic Monkeys, The Smiths and Pulp. Also Florence + the Machine and Vampire Weekend (Matt can be arty), Guns 'N' Roses (Matt can be heavy) and Lana Del Rey (Matt can surprise you with his breadth of musical taste).
