Songwriter Charlotte Elizabeth and Honey Ryder’s Matt Bishop start Artist Development Company

Me and Matt Survive Launch

Just last week we featured a review of the brilliant ‘Survive’ EP, written by Charlotte Elizabeth and featuring a number of the UK’s best country acts. Hot on the heels of this release (and from what I hear was an amazing launch party) we have more great news from Charlotte, in that she has a new ‘Artist Development’ project alongside Matt Bishop of the fantastic Honey Ryder. For more details click here and here is the official press release:

‘Guitarist and Producer Matt Bishop and Songwriter Charlotte Elizabeth have joined forces to create a new Artist Development company in Staffordshire.

Matt and Charlotte met 18 months ago when Charlotte first started thinking about releasing an EP and after working so well together and developing a friendship, they noticed a gap in the market for other services.

Charlotte said “After speaking to a number of artists, it became apparent that there is a gap in the market for development and support in the industry.  Many people are going into the studio to record their songs without any guidance or chance for development. We have found that they have nobody to co-write with, no access to a choice of musicians and no knowledge to develop themselves as artists”

Matt added “Our partnership means we can offer everything an artist needs to develop from that first song right through to releasing a complete album. This takes stress and a heavy work load off the artist and allows them to focus on what they do best”

Matt, known for his work as one third of UK Country Group Honey Ryder, has played The O2 as part of the annual Country 2 Country music festival, recorded in Nashville and is well known in the local area for being a member of Rock & Pop function band Live Wires.

Charlotte’s debut EP, produced by Matt debuted in the iTunes Country Chart at number 4 when released earlier this month. Charlotte saw two of her songs declared Semi Finalists in the UK Songwriting Competition 2016.

Matt & Charlotte will be offering a variety of different priced packages including the production of singles, EP’s & Albums, Music Videos, Photography shoots, PR & Radio and Artists Management.

They will operate from Inspire Music Recording Studios in Fulford, Staffordshire but are also available to work nationally depending on artist requirements.’
