Originally from Liverpool, Matthew Heery began playing the guitar at an early age. Throughout his school career he performed regularly at venues around the city both solo and with a number of ensembles. From 2006-2010 he attended the Birmingham Conservatoire to study guitar with Mark Eden and Mark Ashford of the Vida guitar quartet. During his time in Birmingham a range of musical activities found him writing, arranging and performing at such diverse locations as Symphony Hall Birmingham, The Philharmonic Hall in Liverpool, art centres throughout the UK and Europe, Glastonbury Festival and Abbey Road Studios. From 2011-2014 Matthew worked as an entertainer and music director for US cruise line, Carnival. In 2014 he moved back to Liverpool and now works locally as a music teacher and musician.
