Matt Griffiths



A Cult Wild is the solo project of Brisbane singer-songwriter Matt Griffiths. Since his early entry into music via playing multiple instruments from age 12, Matt gained confident momentum in his first collaborative project, Muddy Chanter. Thanks to their various interstate tours and EP releases, Muddy Chanter gave Matt priceless experience he would later use to meticulously craft his solo material.

His debut single My Funeral is a perfect example of what to expect from the new project. The song starts with folk-laden singer-songwriter charm and delicate vocals spitting sad questions, eventually ending up contently tangled in a dreamy world of piano, synths, slide guitar and strings.
