19 year old Reading musician Matt Maltese has again signalled his musical prowess with the incredibly accomplished, yet delicate, ‘Even If It’s A Lie’. Having previously been invited to take part in world-renowned fashion label Burberry’s music project, ‘Burberry Acoustic’ at just sixteen years old, Matt has continued developing his sound, creating a genuinely impressive back catalogue that ‘Even If It’s A Lie’ seamlessly fits into.

With a soft piano led intro it’s easy to see why the young star has been referred to as the next Tom Odell. As the subdued tone of the track slowly builds, Maltese’s stunning vocals take over, drawing the listener in as he enchants them with his outpouring of emotion.

With plays already on Xfm and a shortlisting on Amazing Radio, it clearly won’t be long until the delicate and charming sounds of Matt Maltese hit the mainstream.
