Brownbear is a musical collective led by singer/songwriter Matt Hickman. The group released their debut single 'Dead or Alive' in May 2014 which subsequently gained them national radio exposure and high profile gigs which included supporting The Libertines at their comeback show at the iconic Barrowland’s Balllroom in Glasgow.
Brownbear then went on to join The Libertines again at their BST Summertime show at Hyde Park before playing at a number of festivals including T in The Park & Belladrum Tartan Heart Festival. An acoustic version of 'Dead or Alive' recorded in the BBC Treehouse became the most viewed clip online for T in the Park 2014 ahead of the likes of Arctic Monkeys & Biffy Clyro.
The bands first London headline show was a sell out and received a positive review from the NME. Brownbear then embarked on a European tour before starting work on their debut album.
Matt will be performing here as a solo act, making for a more intimate and engaging show.
