Matthew Simms

Matthew Simms is Wire's guitarist since 2010, making his recorded debut on 2013’s Change Becomes Us.

An 'untraditional' guitar enthusiast, Matthew's approach to the guitar and to music in general is based purely on sound, believing what sounds right, is right. An avid effects box hoarder and vinyl record collector, his taste, as shown by his playing, is vast and wildly varied.

Alongside Wire, Matthew is a multi-instrumentalist and producer, found working across a wide range of styles whilst always bringing his unique, thoughtful, experimental touch to all; from fronting the lo-fi noise-pop of It Hugs Back, releasing a stream of cosmic mediative synth albums under the name SLOWS, hitting his guitar with metal bowls, sticks and anything else in close proximity in the improv noise supergroup UUUU.M

He is increasingly in demand as a record producer/mix engineer and session musician, recently working with Verity Susman, Chastity Belt and Bill Fay and has also found success writing music for a number of film, television and multimedia projects.
