Meet The Band

Matt Normington

Matt is the lead vocalist of Fracture. Having joined the band in early 2011, his power vocals have shaped the direction the band has taken since. Once upon a time a classically-trained choirboy, life's journey took him from angelic youngster to the rocker he is today. A vocal tone that can range from melodic southern rock through to a gravely growl.
