Matt Berry is a celebrated actor, writer, winner of The National Comedy Awards, Bafta 2015 and talented musician; received with both critical as well as popular aclaim, to date he has released nine albums on Acid Jazz Records. As the titles points out, Gather Up anthologizes his output over the past decade.
Over 10 years with Acid Jazz Records, Matt Berry has released nine incredibly diverse albums (including one live album). From the tangled-folk rock thickets of Witchazel and Kill The Wolf (which features the song from which this box gets its name), to the out-there explorations of Music For Insomniacs or TV Themes’ retro-kitsch delights, through the soul power in Matt Berry & The Maypoles Live or the twilight grooves of The Small Hours to the classic pedal-steel songwriting of Phantom Birds and the smorgasbord of psychedelic sounds on The Blue Elephant, Berry’s journey has produced a feast for the ears that twists and turns down more unexpected avenues than most artists could manage over several careers.
No one says it better than normal human bartender Jackie Daytona, who explains, "When you're Matt Berry, you can do whatever you want. Because you change lives."
