A FEW samples of my Written work

Hello! I'm Matt Parker, a full-time freelance music journalist based in Manchester in the UK. I have over 10 years experience writing about music and interviewing musicians for a broad range of respected print and digital media outlets, including TheArtsDesk, Classic Rock Prog, Guitarist, MusicRadar.com, NME online,  Rhythm, TeamRock.com and Total Guitar.

I have interviewed a host of stars from across the spectrum; including bonafide legends like Jimmy Cliff, Blondie, Booker T and Slash, through to modern icons-in-the-making like The Black Keys, Ben Howard and Laura Marling. From KISS to Korn and Deftones to Death Cab, I have been there, asked the questions and blagged the T-shirt.

If you're interested in commissioning me to write for your publication or brand, don't hesitate to get in touch on matt@extendedplaypodcast.com.
