Joe Matera

Australian singer/songwriter/instrumentalist and guitarist Joe Matera is a melodious troubadour, having amassed quite an impressive track record in his career. This includes playing guitar for famed British music legend Steve Harley (Cockney Rebel fame) to performing on the festival stages in Europe to scoring a Top 20 hit on Radio Berlin in Germany. His songs and music speak with authority and emotion straight from the heart.

Since 2010, he has recorded and released several well received albums and EPs through various European record labels and has toured Europe on a regular basis. As a solo artist, he has performed live in concert supporting the likes of Australian music legends Mental As Anything, Brian Cadd and Russell Morris, American rocker Peter Criss (KISS), blues legends Canned Heat, English NWOBHM stalwarts Weapon UK and Scottish 1970s tartan sensations, Bay City Rollers to name but a few. 

His acoustic instrumental ‘Brick By Brick’ was voted #18 on the Top 100 Chilliest tracks of 2022 by Australian digital radio network SBS Chill Radio. 

In November, 2021 his first book, ‘Backstage Pass: The Grit and The Glamour‘ was published worldwide via UK based publishing house, Empire Publishing.
