Quiet Loner is the pen-name of songwriter Matt Hill.
His recording and live work as Quiet Loner has won him many
accolades, including Americana UK Album of the Year for his debut
LP 'Secret Ruler of the World', and he has played with kindred
spirits like Lambchop, Neko Case and Joe Pernice. Inspired by the
storytelling traditions of American folk and country music, Hill's
songs also have a distinctly British lyrical bite.
His new album is a stark and honest collection of performances
recorded deep in the English countryside during the big freeze of
January 2010. Produced by Mat Martin (Kirsty McGee, The Brute
Chorus) it contains eleven songs of experience and wisdom, and
features contributions from Inge Thomson (Bonnie Prince Billy,
Broken Family Band), Roy Dodds (Fairground Attraction, Hank
Wangford) and long term collaborator Alan Cook (Jackie Leven).
