Music: Matt Willis

Standard

MWToday’s Music Recommendation is Matt Willis’ Solo Album, Don’t Let It Go to Waste. Most people, I’m sure, know who Matt is but in case you don’t he is a British musician and songwriter, TV presenter and actor. He is one third of the now split band Busted and one sixth of the newly formed supergroup McBusted. Following the Busted split Matt released his debut solo album which had three top 20 singles. In 2006, following this release, he won I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! In 2011 Matt starred as Fiyero in the West End hit musical Wicked! Following this in 2013, he appeared in The West End Men alongside Lee Mead. Matt Willis, as well as working with the McFly and Busted boys, has a role in UK soap EastEnders as Luke Riley. In January Matt played the role of Garth Stubbs in Birds of a Feather.

CDMatt Willis’ solo career was short-lived as he soon realised he much preferred creating albums and music in a band. Never the less, Matt managed to create a wonderful pop-punk album. I listen to this album a lot because it’s got a similar sound to Busted but is mixed with a harder, edgier tone which just sounds so good. My favourite songs are Fade out and Ex-Girlfriend although I do absolutely the entire album.
