Ex Brink singer prepares for his first performance with new acoustic duo

MATT Strafford, former lead singer of the Wisbech based band The Brink, is set for his first gig since quitting.

Matt has joined forces with Ryan Buxton to form an acoustic duo playing songs from the 40’s to now.

They will be covering songs from artists such as Frank Sinatra, Michael Bubl�, Stevie Wonder, Cee Lo Green and many more.

Their first performance will be at Bar Red, Kings Lynn on April 21: details can be found on www.facebook.com/mattandryan and to see other live dates.

Matt quit The Brink, after helping to form the band three years earlier, and said it had not been an easy decision to make.

“However I feel that it’s the right decision for me and my future,” he said. “I want to thank all the fans who have enjoyed and supported this epic journey that we have been on, and I will never forget my time in the band.

“You have all been amazing and I will miss you.”
