Lee Mvtthews aka Graham Matthews and Tom Lee have been musical collaborators since 2013, quickly gaining a reputation for infectious tunes that pair colourful melodies with bass-driven drops.

Their debut EP, SILHOUETTES, was released in late 2017 and featured 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 winning them Best Track of 2018 at the George FM awards.

In 2018 the duo released four singles, ‘Stay’ Ft. Omega Levine, ‘Inside Out’ Ft. Watson, ‘Fool’, and ‘Let Me Go’ ft. Embher with three of them receiving music video funding from NZ on Air. The lads have also taken on remixes for NZ pop/hip hop sensation Kings and Perth drum and bass virtuoso’s Flowidus.

Lee Mvtthews have become a favourite in the New Zealand festival circuit, playing regularly at the likes of Rhythm & Vines, Bay Dreams, Homegrown, Springbreak Fiji, as well as headlining shows up and down the country. In their hometown of Auckland, New Zealand their 'Lee Mvtthews and Friends' series has amassed attention, hosting Australian acts like Leotrix and Badrapper. In addition to this, they have become a go-to support act for an array of international talents, such as Slumberjack, Jauz, Sigma, Borgore, and more.

Earlier this year the boys wrapped up a successful festival season after sets at Homegrown, Bay Dreams and Rhythm & Vines, before heading to their first Bush Doof at the end of March. The winter months have seen them headling shows up and down the country as well as playing support for Internationals such as Luude, Svdden Death & Upgrade.

They won both of their nominated categories at the 2019 Georgies, taking home the gongs for NZ Artist of the Year and NZ Banger of the Year for their track 'Let Me Go' with Embher. In anticipation of their debut album arriving late 2019, the boys have released two heavy hitting bangers, the melodic 'Bones' with Kaysh & the darker 'If Only' that explores the boundaries of the duo's producing capabilities. The latest track has seen their overall streams top 3 million and the duo hit the #1 position on radio play for dance music in New Zealand for their last two releases.
