The duo - Graham Matthews and Tom Lee - met in 2012 and started working together when they discovered they had a nearly identical taste in music, forming Lee Mvtthews in late 2013. Since then, they’ve gone from strength-to-strength, gaining a reputation for turning out infectious tunes that pair colourful melodies with bass-driven drops. Their debut EP, SILHOUETTES, was released in late 2017 and features collaborations with well-known Kiwi acts such as Pieter T and TY. The record’s stand-out track, ‘Nothing To Lose’, featuring Jay Bulletproof and Marino Mariner, was a huge hit on George FM and has clocked up more than 100,000 streams across Spotify and Apple Music.
The duo kicked off 2018 with an NZ tour to support their single ‘Stay’ featuring Omega Levine. ‘Stay’ debuted on Spotify's New Music Friday (AUS/NZ), Apple Music's Best of the Week, as well featuring on George FM's top 5. Now, ‘Inside Out’ is following suit. The song’s video, made by Stan McDowall and Taylor Mansfield, captures candid moments behind the scenes when Lee Mvtthews opened for American electronic producer JAUZ on his recent New Zealand tour, with shows in Dunedin, Christchurch and Hamilton. It gives fans a glimpse of the magic of a live Lee Mvtthews show and serves as a reminder as to why the duo is considered one of the hottest live dance acts on the scene right now. Lee Mvtthews have played at a number of festivals, including Northern Bass, Rhythm & Vines, Bay Dreams, Springbreak Fiji, as well as headlining shows up and down the country.
They have supported International heavyweights such as UZ, Kill the Noise, Jauz, Golden Features, Ookay, Boombox Cartel, NGHTMRE, and Slumberjack.
