One Formation Biography 2021
One Formation is the musical project of Windsor born artist Matthew Fleming. Matt spent his Youth playing in rock bands and went on to study Commercial Music at the University of Westminster. It was at university that Matt became inspired by a diverse range of musical styles. Frustrated with the normality of creating a new alias when trying out a different genre, in 2011 One Formation was formed, a canvas to create all under one roof. In 2016 Matt released his self-titled debut album combining a range of acoustic styles, post rock, indie and ambient electronica. Since then One Formation has been performing live using loopers and electronics to reform the album tracks, sometimes turning into new compositions such as in his ambient electronic dub set. Matt can also be found performing in a more classic singer-songwriter style on acoustic guitar and vocals. On many occasions he will combine all the performance styles into one unique and explorative set.
‘Covered 4 Cancer’
The excellent new album ‘Covered 4 Cancer ‘ by Damian Clarke is out now and aim’s to raise as much money as possible for Cancer Research and The Stroke Association. The album features ten tracks of covered songs that Damian has re-arranged for the Hammer Dulcimer, songs that he hopes people will enjoy singing along to, and is available to listen and download at numerous sites including Bandcamp and Amazon where people can hear samples before donating as well as on CD.
