Australian singer/songwriter/instrumentalist and guitarist Joe Matera is a melodious troubadour, having amassed quite an impressive track record in his career. This includes playing guitar for famed British music legend Steve Harley (Cockney Rebel fame) to performing on the festival stages in Europe to scoring a Top 20 hit on Radio Berlin in Germany. His songs and music speak with authority and emotion straight from the heart.
Since 2011, he has recorded and released six well received CDs through European record labels W.A.R Productions (Austria) and RVPrecords (The Netherlands), and tours Europe each year. As a solo artist, he has performed live in concert supporting the likes of Aussie music legends Mental As Anything, Brian Cadd and Russell Morris, American rocker Peter Criss (KISS), blues legends Canned Heat and Scottish 1970s tartan sensations, Bay City Rollers to name but a few. He recently issued the all-acoustic EP, ‘Waiting For The Sun’.
A new single ‘Overload’ which was fully recorded at the famed Sunlight Studios in Stockholm with legendary Swedish producer Tomas Skogsberg (Backyard Babies, Entombed, The Hellacopters), was released in late September, 2019.
