A BRIEF HISTORY OF MAT THE OLD MAN

MAT THE OLD MAN HAS MIRACULOUSLY SURVIVED AND ENDURED 20 LONG PAINFUL YEARS OF SELF DESTRUCTIVE DRUG AND ALCOHOL ADDICTION-WHILST DRIFTING AROUND THE WORLD WRITING SONGS-LOOKING FOR LOVE & PLAYING IN ROCK N ROLL BANDS.

THROUGH HIS DEADLY DAILY DRUG ABUSE, MAT THE OLD MAN ALSO EXPERIENCED YEARS OF CONSTANT ROUGH SLEEPING AND HOMELESSNESS IN NEW ZEALAND, AUSTRALIA AND ENGLAND, AND HE OFTEN FOUND HIMSELF DESTITUTE WITHOUT MONEY OR HOUSING SURVIVING THROUGH BUSKING-CHARITIES-SHITKICKER DEAD END JOBS AND THE KINDNESS OF STRANGERS.

 THROUGH THE DAILY ADDICTION LIFESTYLE MAT THE OLD MAN HAS BEEN SUBJECTED TO ALL TYPES OF SEXUAL- PHYSICAL & MENTAL ABUSE AND IT WAS HIS BELOVED SONGWRITING THAT SAVED HIM FROM IRREPARABLE PSYCHOLOGICAL DAMAGE.

MAT THE OLD MAN WAS MIRACULOUSLY AND DIVINELY CARRIED THROUGH 3 SEPARATE NEAR-DEATH HOSPITALISATION EXPERIENCES DURING THE YEARS THAT HE WAS IN HIS ACTIVE ADDICTIONS WHICH ONLY SERVED TO AWAKEN HIS SPIRITUALITY AND FAITH IN DIVINE ORCHESTRATIONS.

IN 2003 MAT THE OLD MAN EVENTUALLY WASHED UP INTO THE 12 STEP RECOVERY ROOMS OF GREENWICH VILLAGE-NEW YORK CITY-WHERE HE BEGAN HIS JOURNEY OF RECOVERING HIS MIND BODY AND SPIRIT.

MAT THE OLD MAN IS CURRENTLY BASED IN GLASTONBURY-ENGLAND WITH HIS WIFE AND STARCHILD WHERE HE CONTINUES TO HEAL THE SHATTERED FRAGMENTS OF HIMSELF AND HIS LIFE TO CREATE HIS MUSIC AND HIS ART- IN HIS OWN WAY - ON HIS OWN TERMS AND IN HIS OWN TIME.

MAT THE OLD MAN WORKS WITH DIVINE INTUITIVE STREAMS OF CONSCIOUSNESS- LOVE- LIGHT-HEALING AND KINDNESS AND AFTER A LIFETIME OF INTERNAL STRUGGLES HE HAS FINALLY STARTED RECORDING AND RELEASING HIS OWN PROLIFIC BACK CATALOGUE OF SONGS AS PART OF HIS OWN SELF LOVE AND SELF EMPOWERMENT THERAPY.
