Matt is a Music Supervisor, specialising in source music research and copyright clearance. His career spans 22 years, with his most recent project being Netflix’s “The End Of The F**king World”. Scored by Blur guitarist Graham Coxon, and featuring songs by Janis Ian, Hank Williams, Francoise Hardy, Shuggie Otis and Fleetwood Mac, as well a host of unknown doo-wop gems, the soundtrack has been universally praised and singled out as a highlight of the show.
Matt joined Air-Edel as receptionist in 1996, and was quickly recognised as something of an anorak / musical know-all. He cut his creative teeth sourcing music for commercials, such as Jonathan Glazer’s “Guinness – Swimblack” campaign, and during this time he began cultivating relationships with key members of the music industry. He moved into feature films, and has garnered a reputation for being a canny negotiator, as well as having a disturbingly encyclopaedic knowledge of the history of popular music. He considers one of the high points of his career to be “Harry Potter & The Goblet Of Fire”, for which he put together a wizarding rock group consisting of Jarvis Cocker from Pulp, and Jonny Greenwood and Philip Selway from Radiohead. He’s also very quietly proud of being the man responsible for putting Nick Cave’s “O Children” in a Harry Potter film
