Singer/songwriter Matt Wills has announced that his second EP Set You Free is going to be available for pre-order as from Friday 2nd December. This is to follow his current Coffee House Tour which sees him playing at universities across the UK.
Matt has received a lot of online attention after the release of his first EP Hurricane, which came out in August this year. He has now found himself being nominated for Iuluv’s Hotlist 2017, which enables fans to vote for him in order to try to make the final ten. Previous winners have gone on to tour worldwide and become MOBO Award winners such as Jessie J.
The London based artist prides himself on staying true to who he is in the music industry, happily playing shows for free and going out of his way to meet everyone who comes out to see him. He regularly busks around London and supports other upcoming singers including Alyss. Alongside the music he runs a clothing brand named ADX which is rapidly growing, with its first magazine shoot happening this week and a new wave of clothes to be released soon.
Following the release of the Set You Free EP, he is in the studio recording a debut album titled La Petite Mort (The Little Death). He has been working closely with Matt Brooks, who has previously worked with Nicole Scherzinger, Meghan Trainer, Marcus Collins and Harper to name a few. The album is due to come out next year.
