Born and raised in Yorkshire, England, Matt Lazenby has been rooted in Montreal since 2008, playing in bands such as Wind Up Radio Sessions and more recently, The Constant Supervision. Matt has also found time to put out 4 solo EPs, straddling the line between wistful Americana, bedroom folk and traditional English song.
In 2018, Matt released ‘Red Tuque’, a 5 song EP of rich melodies, idiosyncratic lyrics, and subtle guitar and banjo picking. 2018 also included a string of solo performances around the city, including an opening slot for anti-folk legend Jeffrey Lewis.
In early 2020, Matt decided to put together ‘Slow Dreams of Sweet Death’, an EP of traditional English music, albeit with a distinctly lo-fi, acid-folk twist. The EP was released on Bandcamp on May 1st, 2020. Matt is also developing a folk duet project with Sabrina Halde (Groenland) entitled Montagnes. The duo are working towards future releases.
