Hi!

I'm Matt Tinsley.

Just after the completion of Water & Stone EP, my friend and producer Matt Weeks and I teamed up to write and record four brand new songs together. We had nothing more than a few song-fragments and the desire to collaborate further. 

Over the coming months, during late nights and odd days off, we slowly crafted and recorded the songs that now make up The Hardest Part EP. What we originally thought would be a small, bedroom project, quickly became a deeper and more complex expression of our passion for song writing, music and the recording process. 

I'm so fortunate to have had the generous contribution of many incredibly gifted musicians and studio professionals on this EP, like Ed Carlile, Paul Evans, Jonathan McMillan, Mark Edwards, Ben Sarfas, Chris Donald, Jon Mann-Smith, Shane D. Wilson and many more.

But now I need your support to finish the EP. The next stage is mixing and mastering, two crucial components to completing a recording. Listed to the right are various ways to support the EP, each with unique rewards. Let me know what you think and get involved!

I can't wait for you to hear the new songs. Thanks for reading and getting involved.
