Matthew Liam Nicholson is a composer, songwriter and recording artist 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)

 

Nicholson's compositions are featured in film, media and art installations, including recent work at the National Gallery of Australia and The Bargello National Museum in Florence, Italy.  

 

Having scored more than 20 short films and many multimedia art installations, his first feature film score for the indie comedy "CRSHD" premiered at Tribeca Film Festival NYC 2019. 

 

Nicholson also scores and performs immersive ambient sound baths with his wife Michelle, in a range of environments, fusing his passion for healing arts and experimental music.

Nicholson is currently working intensively on completing the first two albums to be released in his full name early 2020.
