ⓘ Matt Hsus Obscure Orchestra

Matt Hsu is a Taiwanese-Australian musician and singer-songwriter who records and performs as Matt Hsus Obscure Orchestra. In 2020, he became a Queensland Music Awards winner in the world music category and has been identified as "one of the freshest feeling projects in Australian music right now." Matt is also known as the co-founder, trumpet player and songwriter for the folk punk band The Mouldy Lovers. Matts 2019 debut album The Shirt Album is notable for having been released "in the form of an organic fair-trade T-shirt in place of a CD" with the aim of reducing potential plastic waste. The album features collaborations with noted Tibetan musician Tenzin Choegyal, Triple J Unearthed Sprung Hip Hop winner Blaq Carrie, and Japanese musician Kenta Hayashi. As a one-person orchestra he has performed at TEDx and Australias BIGSOUND Festival, and has been featured on SBS World News.
