In 2016 Matt formed the band Little Mammoths, releasing the critically acclaimed debut album Phantom Dreams, and 2017's follow up Cargo for the Road.

February 2019 saw the release of Matt's debut solo album, "Whiskey and Orchids." It is an album that sits closest to "Americana" with its campfire storytelling hinting at some of Matt's favourite artists Neil Young, Jason Isbell and Warren Zevon.
