Hi Guys :) 

I recently completed my 500th Place Played in Chania, Crete.  I'm now recovering with friends in Scotland.  Please find attached a song I wrote in Chania, for your airplay consideration, and another recent song.
 
Bio
 
Songwriter and Street Artist from North Wales. 
I have just completed an epic 5 1/2 year journey, playing and writing my way through 500 towns and cities, in 30 countries.
It has been a truly exhausting and challenging experience, with lots of inspiration along the way.
I plan on a book about the journey "500 Places" and I have many songs to record.
It is fair to say that my life never really started until I followed my passions.
The artists that have inspired me the most are vast, with Pink Floyd being top of that list.  
 
Thanks a lot

Matias Malagardis

"This artist should not be seen as an exciting prospect for the future, but as an accomplished musician in the here and now." - Essentially Pop (United Kingdom)

Madrid-born Matias Malagardis is a 20-year old singer songwriter, who walks in the footsteps of Jack Johnson and Ben Howard, with his mellow, melodic, acoustic-pop songs. In love with the surf culture, his music is highly influenced by the feelings and peace the sea transmits.

He released his first EP 'Winter By The Sea' on October 11th 2018, which was written with the help of Pete Smith (Grammy award winner for the live recording of Sting’s album “The Dream of the Blue Turtles”).

Since his first EP was released, it has received really good critics from independent blogs around Europe:

"A very worked EP, and above all, made with a lot of care. A real pleasure to listen. Endlessly." - Music For Your Heart (France).

He has now become an AWAL artist and will be releasing his next single ‘What You’ve Done’ on April 5th , which was recorded with artists such as Tom Jordan (Eastman Guitars Artist).

Dear BBS, 

My partner and I would love our music shared with the listeners of BBS.

Our story;

In 2015 I saw a tweet from an NYC artist named Whitney Tai. She was promoting her debut album. I opened the link, hit play, and I heard the most beautiful voice. On a lark, I sent a private message to this talented stranger and she responded. We quickly built a quaint and intimate relationship around our love of music and life.

Coincidently, we were both going through very serious personal challenges. Failed personal relationships, a cancer diagnosis, death of a close relatives, and pets. We stayed in touch weekly. As good fortune would have it, she moved to Los Angeles in early 2018. When Whitney and I finally met in person we immediately felt we’d create beautiful and unique music. And that’s what we’ve achieved.

Whitney and I have just released an EP and are receiving an amazing response internationally. We are proud to be the feature cover story of The Aquarian a music publication currently on new-stands all over New York, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania. In addition, Australia’s Happy Magazine is  running a 2 part feature on us.

The release features the title track "Flowers By The Roadside" and a haunting, alt-electro version of the classic holiday song, “Silent Night”. Flowers By The Roadside is a Folktronica (Simon & Garfunkel meets Goldfrapp) piece was co-written with Los Angeles based singer/songwriter, Whitney Tai, composer/guitarist, Michael Trainor and produced by #1 Billboard Producer, Tim Janssens.

Our hope is that Flowers By The Roadside empowers and comforts the individual who feels they’ve no voice in society. It’s a gentle reminder that the individual is visible, beautiful, and capable of change in an increasingly challenging civilization, where people's voice and basic human rights are disappearing.

Both tracks are FCC CLEAN and registered with BMI. Attached you will find our press release, photo, and below downloadable Soundcloud & Bandcamp links.
