Chris Matthews

WWOWF Adam Harvey

An Australian story teller; a unique guitarist of extraordinary ability; a
man whose touring exploits almost redefine the word “troubadour”; an
artist with more energy on stage than a hessian bag full of souped-up
Wolverines – all of this is true when you speak of the fella from
Kununurra, Chris Matthews. After nearly 2 decades of touring around
Australia and overseas, and averaging nigh on 250 shows a year, every
year, he’s an impeccable live performer, a favourite of countless festival
stages across the country, and one of the most highly sought after artists
this side of the black stump.


Name a town, festival or venue in Australia, and you can pretty much
guarantee that Matthews has performed there in his non-stop touring
exploits. Whether doing a 5 hour show and breaking more strings on his
guitar than you can count, to supporting some of the greatest Australian
artists such as Troy Cassar-Daley, Jimmy Barnes, Kasey Chambers or John
Butler, to criss-crossing the nation in a manner that will probably make
you exhausted just looking at it on paper, you can be sure of one thing –
there’s not many artists who literally live the definition of the word
“Troubadour” like he does.
