M G Boulter is a songwriter and musician who currently lives on the outer reaches of the Thames coast in England.
M G’s first collection of songs was released in 2008 under the moniker, Blue Vinyl Island and featured a myriad of musicians known as The Secret Six. The follow up, The Whispering Pines, was released by Stovepony Records in 2012 and continued the exploration of lo-fi roots recordings that was started in Blue Vinyl Island. In July 2013, M G’s third solo album, The Water or the Wave, was released by Harbour Song Records. M G recruited various friends and colleagues for the album sessions, including Lucky Strikes compatriot Paul Ambrose, Bryony Afferson and Lizzy O’Connor from London folk and bluegrass band Troubadour Rose and, by no means least, legendary Dire Straits and Bob Dylan drummer Pick Withers. This eclectic cast helped Matthew create a work of considerable warmth and subtlety.
As a player of an array of stringed instruments, M G Boulter has also worked alongside many other artists including Conor Oberst, Neil McSweeney, Duke and the King and Rosalie Deighton, while remaining a long standing member of the Simone Felice Group.
M G Boulter continues to tour and record with his band, The Lucky Strikes, first as bass player from 2006 then as singer and guitarist by 2009. The band has released four albums to date
