Sights on a Golden Gui­tar for Matthew

Isis Town and Country - - News -

TAL­ENTED young lo­cal artist Matthew Munro has his sights set on a ca­reer in the music in­dus­try as a singer and song­writer.

The am­bi­tious teen is a fan of coun­try music and has plans to re­lease his first coun­try EP later this year with his own music and a pos­si­ble cover song.

Matthew has a long list of ac­com­plish­ments in­clud­ing per­form­ing at the Gympie Muster and busk­ing at the Tam­worth Fes­ti­val.

With his first tal­ent quest at the age of 12, he fol­lows the coun­try music cir­cuit and has per­formed on many stages around Queens­land.

“I want to suc­ceed in the music in­dus­try and to be a pos­i­tive in­flu­ence for oth­ers,”

The shy teen said his friends like is voice but no so keen on the genre of music.

“I have a wide va­ri­ety of music I fol­low and my main in­flu­ences are Adam Brand and Hunter Hayes,”

“They are two artists I look up too and as­pire to be like,”

The tal­ented mu­si­cian picked up the gui­tar and learnt to play only a few years ago un­der the watch­ful eye of his fa­ther.

“My dad taught me how to play the gui­tar then I went on to have lessons,”

When ask if he would ap­ply for any or all of the re­al­ity tal­ent shows he said no.

“I don’t think I could han­dle the cri­tiques from the judges,”

Matthew has a list of ac­com­plish­ments, per­form­ing at River Feast, the Bund­aberg Easter Roundup and he was the ju­nior male win­ner at the Tam­worth Academy.

Matthew ap­plied for a spot in this year’s Childers Fes­ti­val and has his fin­gers crossed for a slot on the main stage to en­ter­tain the thou­sands of vis­i­tors.

Even with his long list of awards and venues played, he still suf­fers from nerves be­fore any per­for­mance.

“I en­joy music and hope­fully I will make it my ca­reer,” he said.

Matthew will be on stage at the Isis Club in Childers on April 29.

Matthew Munro will be a name to re­mem­ber, his tal­ent and am­bi­tion will take him far and pos­si­bly many Golden Guitars.
