Nagamag:
What are the genres that describe better your music style?

Matt Stewart-Evans:
As a solo artist - contemporary classical, neo-classical, whatever you want to call it.


Nagamag:
Few words about your musical background and career?

Matt Stewart-Evans:
I’ve been playing piano for the past 12 years or so and have been writing music alongside that, whilst completing various music theory and performance exams right through to making the decision last year to switch to composing (almost) full-time.


Nagamag:
Do you remember your first connection of love to music that was the right impact to be a music artist now?

Matt Stewart-Evans:
I've had a fascination of music from quite an early age, but only had a couple of years of piano lessons as a child before being distracted by other things in life. Thankfully my teacher was very good despite my lack of attention at the time, and I built a solid grasp of the essentials which was hugely valuable in picking the instrument back up years later. At 15, I got my first pair of turntables and mixer and that was my main musical outlet for the next ten years, but piano slowly took up more time and become more serious as a realised how much satisfaction I got from developing my skills and writing.


Nagamag:
What was a defining moment for you as an artist?

Matt Stewart-Evans:
A big change for me came around four years ago when 1631 Recordings contacted me to ask whether I'd be interested in adding one of my piano pieces "Opus #24" onto a compilation (Piano Cloud), as they were just starting out the label. That ended up being very successful and was playlisted for 6 months or so. Up until then, I'd not considered releasing my music commercially, but that was a big moment for me in terms of seeing an unexpected reward for doing something I loved, which made me consider how I could make it more central to my life.


Nagamag:
Music has no borders and many of us we may listen to more genres that we are mainly involved. So share with Nagamag which track comes first in your mind from music but is NOT similar to your genre?

Matt Stewart-Evans:
Djrum "Showreel, Pt. 3"


Nagamag:
Of Course Nagamag would love to listen also which track from a similar artist you admire?

Matt Stewart-Evans:
Hania Rani "F Major"
