Matt McGinn

Matt McGinn is a singer songwriter & producer from the foothills of the Mourne Mountains in Co. Down. He has released 4 studio albums to date, all of which, and especially the latest, ‘Lessons of War’ were critically acclaimed.

The Line of Best Fit said it was a “Plaintive and devastating reassessment of the futility of war, its horrors, effects and after-effects…”

Its lead single ‘Bubblegum’ was penned with Mick Flannery. After playing it Tom Robinson of BBC 6 Music asked the question “…now wasn’t that just extraordinary?”

Matt’s latest release ‘Something’ became the most played song on BBC Radio Ulster in March ’21 and was playlisted on RTE Radio 1.

His previous single ‘Annie (Many Moons Ago)’ was described by Hotpress Magazine as “without doubt, one of the best singles you will hear this year…”

Since lockdown began in March of 2020, Matt, along with fellow performer Cormac Neeson of The Answer, developed the online platform Cocoons. Now well past its 60th week, it is a gender balanced platform that has seen performances from over 140 established artists all around the word and raised over £12,000 for various charities.
