Biography

The creation of UK singer-songwriter Matt Hales (January 1972, Southampton, Hampshire, England), Aqualung’s music reflects both his classical music education and the influence of OK Computer -era Radiohead. The precocious Hales earned a scholarship at the age of 16 to study composition in Winchester, and the following year conducted the performance of his first mini-symphony. He went on to complete a music degree at London’s City University, where his quasi-classical mood pieces were first used to soundtrack art installations and advertisements. During this period his affection for rock music also began to take a more serious form. A part-time covers band with his brother mutated into the indie rock quartet Ruth, with the Hales joined by bass player Stephen Cousins and drummer Matt Vincent-Brown. The quartet plugged away with little success between 1992 and 2000, releasing several singles and a solitary album (Harrison) in 1999 on Arc Records.
