PRESS REVIEW "Today, I am faced with an exceptional Folk singer-songwriter…Not only is his music tangible but different to what is out there and has the genuine feel of a professional, world-class act." - (Musicmusingsandsuch 2017)
"Matt is a gifted singer songwriter living and working in London. His indie/folk is intricate and thoughtful. With a nod to acts like Bears Den and Ben Howard, Matt has captured everything good about the current climate of indie folk, all the while remaining separate and distinct.” - (Fairlight Studios 2016)
"The acoustic tent continued to deliver fantastic voices and effortless guitar throughout the day; notably, Matt Perriment, whose cover of John Mayer’s ‘Waiting for the World to Change’ was mesmerising and held the crowd speechless” - (Strong Island Blissfields Festival Review)
