Matt Corby at Night at the Barracks – North Head, Manly

Matt Corby at Night at the Barracks – North Head, Manly

2 x ARIA award winner Matt Corby brings his amazing live show to The Barracks for the first time to celebrate the release of his new album, Everything’s Fine.

His first album in five years, Everything’s Fine vividly captures the personal and creative growth of Matt Corby who, like many, was tipped belly side up recently. Beyond the global touring pause, on the day he had planned to begin writing his next album Matt’s home was inundated with floodwaters. His family moved into Rainbow Valley Studios, where he juggled familial responsibilities with his creative pursuits – a one-of-a-kind pressure cooker circumstance that would galvanise his artistic evolution.

Firmly fixed on seeing the best of things, Matt reveals: “I’m at a really beautiful point in my life. I’m accepting all this stuff: the good and the bad, but particularly the bad. Which is kind of great. It’s a good thing to come to that point. Life isn’t always magical, but the moments that are, well you really value them. I think this record is about that, about managing your actual reality. Sometimes I have those moments when you realise: well, I’m still breathing, you still have the gift of life, so everything is fine I guess?”

  • 5.30pm – Gates open
