With a name like Matt Maltese, the Reading 19-year-old is surely destined for big things. Fortunately his debut song 'Even If It's a Lie' is as accomplished and majestic as any debut I've heard of late.

While listed as a demo recording ("recorded in his room"), the track and production has a rawness and directness that is undeniably part of its charm; emotive and heartfelt, 'Even If It's a Lie' feels like an important song from a clear talent.
