Matt Cardle is one of the UK’s best male vocal and songwriting talents of the last decade. As the resounding winner of The X Factor’s highest rating series ever in 2010, Matt Cardle stunned over 19 million viewers with his breathtaking four-octave vocal range. Matt historically won the public vote every week, with the exception of the first, and had the honour of dueting with superstar Rihanna for the live final.
Brit Award nominee Matt has since gone on to sell over 2.2 million records in the UK including a number of hit singles; #1 When We Collide, #6 Run For Your Life, #10 Loving You and the beautiful The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face. These songs were taken from Matt’s three multi-platinum top 10 selling-albums; Letters (2011), The Fire (2012) and Porcelain (2013). His debut single When We Collide sold over one million copies and was recently named as one of the UK’s Top 40 biggest selling singles of the past decade and the #1 best-selling single of the past fifteen years in Ireland!
In addition to his acclaimed output as a solo artist, Matt has also shown a keen intuition for collaboration: from his top 10 hit ‘Loving You’ with pop royalty Melanie C, his live performances with double MOBO award winning Saxophonist YolanDa Brown and most recently joining The Trevor Horn Band on a number of UK summer festival dates. Perhaps the most unique among his achievements is his 2015 award for Best West End Debut, won for his show-stopping stage performance, alongside Beverly Knight, in the acclaimed West End production of Memphis.
Matt, born in Southampton and raised in Essex, has just completed his sixth UK tour playing 16 dates across the UK. In September 2013 he performed The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face at Miss World in Bali, Indonesia in front of an audience of over two billion. Matt’s performance of this song was voted the 3rd Best Moment in the history of The X Factor and has been viewed over 50 million times on YouTube.
Matt is currently writing and recording his forth studio album with a more electro, yet still soulful, sound. The album will feature an array of talented producers including; Jim Eliot (Kylie Minogue / Ellie Golding / Will Young), John Beck (Corrine Bailey Rae / Indiana), Dimitri Tikiovoi (Goldfrapp / Charli XCX / Paloma Faith) and Dan McDougall.
