MATTHEW PINFIELD

SONGWRITER / PRODUCER / MUSICIAN

ABOUT

Music for me has been a lifelong passion. Beginning with my time as head chorister at St. Peter's Collegiate Church Wolverhampton, continuing through school and university, where I participated in a variety of bands/ensembles at both a local and national level, and beyond into my working life, music has always been my focus. 

For over a decade now I have been working in the music industry, simultaneously balancing my passion for the performing arts and music production with my enthusiasm for music education. The breadth and scope of my experience has equipped me with a diverse range of skills; I have worked independently and within established companies and understand what it means to build a business in the music industry. My work in music education has continued successfully in parallel alongside my work as a record producer/songwriter and musician. I hugely value being involved in different disciplines and firmly believe there is a great deal of crossover between the two.

 

My recording company, Grandflat Recordings, grew organically out of my own recording projects, into recording friends' projects and is now a bespoke studio service specifically tailored towards developing and mentoring artists/bands. A large part of my work is collaborating with solo artists where taking an idea from scratch demo to full production is required. I play drums/guitar/bass/piano and sing so am able to facilitate whole arrangements, including orchestral elements, where necessary. In recent years co-writing with artists has become a major part of my studio practise.

 

The other side of my studio work is more focussed on live performance, whether that's tracking whole bands or working with classical ensembles. In recent years I've also been assisting Gary Cole at Regent Records, who specialises in recording classical/church/choral music, where expertise in traditional recording techniques is paramount.

 

As a songwriter/performer over the years I've been lucky enough to have worked regularly in the UK and abroad with my own bands and playing for others as a session musician. My band Young Runaways were finalists in the Glastonbury Emerging Talent Competition which led onto some fantastic opportunities, including appearing at the festival, BBC radio sessions and all the usual fun to be had with a band! My songs, which are all self produced, have been used in TV shows and adverts for major brands, including a commercial for Peugeot! Over the last few years I've been working with a company called Overcoast Music, composing bespoke music for adverts/games etc as well as maintaining my own record company via relationships with Sentric Music (Publishing) and AWAL (Kobalt Music).

 

I've been working in music education for the last 10 years alongside my production/songwriting career. I teach drum kit/percussion, guitar/bass and music production. I've worked for several music hubs of various size and scope, and am contracted privately by the Amethyst Academy Group for their instrumental tuition. I am an experienced practitioner of the Rock School Graded syllabus for drums, bass and guitar.
