Album Notes
Influenced by the cream of Pop and Rock music from the Rock and roll era through to the present day, The Brigadier (Matt Williams) writes melodic pop songs with heart melting chord changes and catchy choruses.
Having established a strong following in the myspace music community, Creation/Poptones boss Alan McGee was suitably impressed enough to offer The Brigadier a gig at his Death Disco night in Notting Hill, London.
Armed with a packed arsenal of timeless pop songs, The Brigadier has had radio coverage in the UK, USA and Europe, as well as magazine coverage locally.
The Brigadiers influences include The Beach Boys, The Beatles, Queen, The Divine Comedy, The Byrds, Nick Lowe, Led Zeppelin and The Rolling Stones.
Debut album 'View from the bath' is a quirky and diverse selection of pop songs about love, loss, happiness and sadness and has had great acclaim from fans and peers alike!

to write a review


special sound, great tracks!
I reccomend everybody to get The Brigadier "View from the bath" cd, it has something special, amazing atmosphere, delicate and elegant sound and lovely voice!


Totally in love with these songs
View from a bath is one of the best albums I 've heard in years!The songs are brilliant in every way...Catchy and very charming.I am totally in love!!!

Janice Mastin-Kamps

Lovely pop-rock from an awesome artist!
Matt makes very sweet music that is fresh and appealing with a great 60's vibe-- back when music could be optimistic or sentimental without apology! Add to that a great voice and assured instrumentals and you have a CD that is great to take along wherever your journey takes you.

Simon Harries

Witty, inventive, pleasing to the ear and a great central performance.
This album has three pleasing attributes: a quirky and intelligent humour running through the song lyrics which even extends to the sleeve design, a wide range of song styles that should appeal to all tastes, and then there is The Bridgadier himself, Matt Williams, whose voice soars with energy and grace, and whose instrumentation is very inventive. My favourite tracks are Some Sort of Magic, which I consider a very beautiful track, Berkeley Square, Senorita, and the eponymous title track, which is played on a selection of instruments whose identities escape me - could there be a hurdy-gurdy in there, or perhaps a celeste? Great stuff! I'm not a musical reviewer, so forgive my fanciful adjectives. However, I have eclectic personal tastes ranging from Rachmaninov and Janacek to Pulp and Sigur Ros, and The Brigadier's View From The Bath falls very agreeably into my current regular playlist. I highly recommend it, but then who the hell am I anyway?!

Jane Ellen

Brilliant, irresistible songwriting!
On the surface this is a catchy, irresistible album, filled with the sort of infectious British-flavoured pop you expect to put a smile on your face and lift your spirits. But don't let that initial hearing deceive you; Matt Williams is a clever and brilliant songwriter, whose insightful lyrics bear repeated listening. 'View from the Bath' is an amazing one-man effort as Williams alone is responsible for writing, arranging, singing, playing, and producing all 13 tracks. Although this isn't quite as unusual as it used it be, it is unusual to hear it done this well. I was going to say my favourite tracks are "It's So Funny", "Berkeley Square", and "Some Sort of Magic", but that would leave out "You've Got to Be" and nine other gems. My best advice? Buy the album and spread the word. The Brigadier is truly "Some Sort of Magic"!


Gentle, catchy tunes with a true English feel!
This album is songwriting genius, it's a wonderful mix of haunting melodies and soothing lyrics. A breath of fresh, sweet smelling air to savour and enjoy! If you want music to make you feel great and smile then this is for you!


Sparkling pop pet sound
Making melody matter and giving pop a good name. Salute!

Tom Watford, Beat Happening Magazine

A class debut album - accomplished, polished, dextrous - a real treat
The Brigadier has been busier than Lily Allen building an on-line army of fans, and here comes the full assault - debut album View From The Bath is half an hour of songwriting at its very finest. Davies, Wilson and McCartney spring to mind, but it's in the more subtle moments that the Brigadier comes into his own, with a distinctly modern view of British city life. Buy this now; cult status or major label stardom beckon, but it starts here, in the bath.

Terry S.

Perfect Pop for lovers of good melody and harmony.
This album brings together a collection of brilliantly crafted songs with a vast range of influences. You can hear echoes of Beach Boys, Queen, Divine Comedy, Beatles and many more, yet each song is recognisable as a Brigadier creation. Lovers of good melodic Pop should have a copy of this CD.


The Brigadier is Here
Matt's been writing songs for years. His dedication to his art is incredible, the fact that this is his debut album highlights his clarity and selection in the songs that he has chosen to unleash on the world. And man are they good.

Lets hope that given time we get to hear the whole catalogue, and that people with ipods everywhere will be playing and singing along to music that I consider to be the best thing around. Really if you have to play your mobile phone loud on the tube / bus, get your act together and play this. With influences from the Beach Boys, Queen, Neil Young etc how can you go wrong.
