Episode #9 MATT KATSIS

Episode #9 MATT KATSIS


Matt Katsis, singer-songwriter and guitarist, has been performing in the streets of Melbourne since 2012, inspired by one of his musical heroes, John Butler, who used to busk on the sidewalks of Fremantle, Western Australia, back in the mid-1990s. Born and raised in the south-eastern suburbs of Melbourne, Matt Katsis, shares his thoughts about busking and his current projects: "The last time I went out busking was March 20th [2020] and my last venue gig was the next day. The week that came after was when the lockdown kicked up a gear and things quickly began shutting down. A couple weeks in I knew I needed to keep playing to stay sane. So I decided to put together some songs from home where I’d play an original on a Tuesday and a cover on a Thursday, and share these on my socials week to week. It’s been a great way to keep my chops up, even though the usual live platforms so quickly had the rug pulled out from under us. The sessions are called the 'Majik Kactus Sessions' and just last week was the 15th episode [mid-June 2020]. I’m taking a little hiatus from the sessions now to work on demoing some new songs for future releases and I am working on some other recording projects. As well as the sessions, I played a couple live streams: a couple local theatres here in Bendigo hosted one of the shows - and the other was a virtual pub put together by the good folk of Mornington Peninsula." Recorded on June 29, 2020 (Zoom recording) by Daniel Bacchieri, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. Music excerpts from the songs "All I Wanna Do Is Fly", "Call me the Breeze", "Colours", "Crossroads", "Need You Here", "Shame Shame Shame", "Sunny's Blues", "Tomorrow & The Next Day", "You & My Guitar".

American gospel and R&B singer Alice Tan Ridley ( is the first artist to be featured on Street Music Map Radio, the official podcast produced by the Street Music Map project ( Alice Tan Ridley - Short Bio (from her official site): Alice was born in Georgia into a musically talented family of 9 siblings, most of whom have become artists. She has been captivating audiences since she was 3 years old. After moving to New York in 1971, raising a family and teaching handicapped children in the NYC school system, Alice focused upon her singing career in 1992 when she began singing full time in the New York City subway stations – Union Square, 34th Street, and the famous 42nd Street Times Square station. Audiences gathered daily as Alice covered many songs such as ‘I Will Always Love You’, ‘I Will Survive’, ‘Billy Jean’, ‘My Heart Will Go On’, and other familiar favorites. Her legendary subway performances – often stopping people dead in their tracks and rocking the station – resulted in a flurry of YouTube videos, which continue to attract millions of viewers. Whenever Alice sang, she consistently drew a sizable crowd, transfixed by her powerful voice, surrounding her and fueling her with love and appreciation. She was known locally as the “New York City Subway Idol.” A 2010 feature in the New York Post described her ‘electrifying R&B act’ after the author witnessed ‘another rousing show in the Times Square underground’. Her first and new album, "Never Lost My Way" (© Copyright - Assouline Records / Assouline Records) is a collection of Alice's favorite songs and her new original songs, co-written with songwriter Jay Stolar. This debut album features an amazing NYC studio band playing arrangements heavily influenced by Classic Soul, R&B and Motown. Alice tackles a range of emotional topics, including watching her children grow, dealing with a cheating lover, and trying to be the best person you can be. Her voice emotes, soars, and rips through every song, giving meaningful performances that captivates everyone who listens.
