Lecturer, Music Journalism
Matt Parker teaches at BIMM Institute Manchester. As a journalist for the likes of Total Guitar, Guitarist and the Team Rock stable, Matt has interviewed a bevy of stars from across the spectrum; including bonafide legends like Jimmy Cliff, Blondie and Slash, through to modern icons-in-the-making like The Black Keys, Ben Howard and Laura Marling. From KISS to Korn and Deftones to Death Cab, Matt has been there, asked the questions and blagged the t-shirt.
Across ten years of music writing, he has held staff positions on reputable print and digital titles, forged a successful freelance career, and learned to adapt to the ever-changing demands of the publishing industry.
