Glam-Pop by MATTHEW WOOD

MatthewWood is an Austrian pop musician, actor and artist. He was born in the 200 soul’s village Gattersdorf, deep within the mountain valleys of Austria. In 2010,Wood moved to the Ruhrpott area in Germany to confront the region with his extravagant style. His Glam-Pop is the inspiration of Funk, Dance and R’n’B. It is inspired by great artists like Justin Timberlake, Prince, Bowie and the Scissor Sisters and shares the ambition to charge contemporary disco music with socio-political contexts and combine the diverse forms of artistic expression (from fashion, sexuality, dance to politics and music) within this process.

MatthewWood is currently working at the Bochum Institute for Popular Music in close collaboration with artists such as Akura Naru, Gregor Schwellenbach and Philipp Janzen ("Von Spar") on his first album "Spectrum of a Sinner", which will be released in April 2017. Meanwhile he is also presenting first songs of the album at selected locations. Recent performances: With theWDR Bigband, he premiered the song "Picnic" in the radio show "Schlag auf Schlag" onWDR 5, Grünspan Club of the Eventim Popcourse in Hamburg, Extraschicht Mühlheim, Heldenbar of the Grillo Theater as part of the newcomer event "Lottes Laden”, Essen Original Festival Lineup with Hans Nieswandt and Mousse T. at the “Philharmonie Essen” "Nachtmusik Spezial" and the Hotel Shanghai Club in Essen Each time the Fashionisto especially designed an extravagant outfit for the performance.
