Matthew Stoff

 

“Everything is part of your story.”


Getting started in a new town can be daunting but Matthew Stoff of ‘The Descenters’ is here and ready to take Melbourne by storm! Motivated by a need for self-expression and a love of performance Matthew quickly took to the stage, writing his own material and teaching himself how to play guitar.

“I just want to play music for people who get what I’m about.”

When asked about his sources of inspiration Matthew provided a font of resources! Though The Descenters is a post-punk/ alternative rock band, inspiration is drawn from any vocalist with their own unique style. Matthew is clearly influenced by things that he is passionate about: literature, philosophy, even anime and movies.

“Anything is potential inspiration for creation.”

A great lesson for all open-mic-ers!
Matthew’s typical day since leaving Brisbane starts with ‘a million coffees’. He always has a variety of projects on the go and is seeking a regular haunt down here in Melbourne town. Throughout his musical career he has learnt that all publicity is good publicity! He advises musos to be confident and play as often as you can.

“Everything is part of your story.”

You can keep up to date with new gigs on Matthew’s Facebook or check out the band at Soundcloud & Bandcamp – Here’s hoping Melbourne turns out well for him!
