Heaps of acoustic guitars from Maton

maton logo

The Maton name is a derivative of the words "May" and "Tone".

Until the mid 1930s an Australian guitar manufacturing industry was virtually nonexistent. Good quality guitars were hard to find and at this time the best guitars came from the U.S.A. Bill May, a Melbourne-born jazz musician, woodwork teacher and luthier decided to change all that.

During the early 1940s Bill established a custom guitar manufacturing and repair business known as "Maton Stringed Instruments and Repairs". This enterprise was so successful that Bill was able to convince his older brother, Reg, to join him as a full time guitar maker and in March 1946 the "Maton Musical Instruments Company" was born.

Maton is still a 100% family owned Australian company, now operated by Linda & Neville Kitchen (Bill May'sdaughter and son in law).

A and R and Project management from The A and R

Headed by former A&R Manager at Warner Music, Matt O'Connor.

Over the years Matt has built up a reputation as one of the most experienced and respected A&R Managers in the country, working closely with artists and management to identify their musical strengths. He currently has a plethora of hugely successful albums in market including Thirsty Merc's follow up Slideshow, which debuted at number 4 on the ARIA Charts. He has consulted on The Beautiful Girls new LP, Ziggurats which debuted at number 21 on the ARIA Chart, and also worked as A&R Manager along side Michael Parisi on the Cold Chisel Tribute album "Standing On The Outside" which included some of the biggest acts in Australia including Living End, Paul Kelly, Pete Murray, Ben Lee, Evermore, Thirsty Merc and Something For Kate. The album debuted at # 2 on the ARIA Chart and has been certified platinum.

"Above and beyond Matt's knack for discovering the very best talent he's the rare A&R man who develops close, trusting relationships with his artists. In a business filled with counter-productive sycophants, matt can be both a friend to the artist while simultaneously maintaining the objectivity needed to insure his acts are coming up with the very best songs, the killer performances and all the fine subtleties and nuances required of an artist who wishes to have success not just in Australia/New Zealand but on a mass global scale. If you're an artist who ever has the opportunity to work with or be mentored by matt, consider yourself very very lucky indeed.''

Leigh Lust

"I call Matt the song doctor. If ever you want an option on whether a track will sit on radio then Matt is the one to tell you. His work on Thirsty Merc is pure evidence of that".
