Bio

My name is Matty Ross and I have been writing music for about 20 years. I have been in several bands over the years during my adventures, and my travels around the country and the world have taken me through Europe, Egypt and even East Timor. The last few years have found me settling down and taking it easy in Brisbane. So now I have a lot of time to record the old, and write the new. With a classically trained Mother and a tone deaf aging hippy Father, I have been subjected to, and influenced by, everyone from Rodgers and Hammerstein and Burt Bacharach to Jimi Hendrix, Pink Floyd and Van Halen. I have tried to turn my voice into a rock and roll voice for years. But no amount of cigarettes and bourbon has helped. That’s why I’m primarily a writer and producer. A great vocalist can make a good song great. So I’d much prefer my works to be published and performed by someone with talent, (ha ha)! So far I have recorded a five track EP in 2003 called “A decade condensed”. In 2004 I completed a concept album called “Seven Deadly Sins” and produced a meditation CD called “Nature Spirit” for Gossamer Ascend who is a spiritual healer in Byron Bay. In 2005 I recorded and sent five, 3 song demo’s out to publishers with many and varied responses. Since the word is getting out there I have named my studio MossRatt Studio! The home studio is getting there and it’s a nice little setup in the back room for those rainy days and late nights. I am learning more and more every day about production and recording techniques. All I have to do now is win lotto, quit my job, do my level 4 certificate at SAE and I’ll be well on the way to becoming a full-time Songwriter and Producer. Rock on and enjoy

Powerful lyrics with an interesting blend and emotional use of instruments. Well worth the time.
