Matthew Liam Nicholson is a songwriter, composer and recording artist originally from Geelong, Australia.  He currently lives in Los Angeles, California. 

Nicholson's work is grounded in a universal mysticism both gritty and ecstatic.


His music "stretches the ethereality of dream-pop into blissout" (Pitchfork, 8.2) and has been described as "reverent, expansive, magical realist folk music” (Uncut)  with a "clear, authorial voice" (Wire).


His compositions are featured in film, media and art installations around the world, including recent works at the National Gallery of Australia and The Bargello National Museum in Florence, Italy.  His first feature film score for the indie comedy "CRSHD" premiered at Tribeca Film Festival NYC 2019.

"Nine Movements" - a deep listening instrumental composition for horizontal or meditative immersion (also in full spatial surround sound), will be released early 2020. 


To be followed by Nicholson's eponymous LA studio album of songs.
