Matt Healy Biography

Matthew Healy is an English musician, best known as the lead singer and guitarist for the rock band The 1975.

Healy was born in London, the son of actors Denise Welch and Tim Healy. He was raised in Newcastle and Northumberland before his parents moved to Manchester when Healy was 10 years old. He left school at 16 and worked in call centres and cafés.

In 2001, Healy met his would-be bandmates—guitarist and keyboardist Adam Hann, drummer and backing vocalist George Daniel, and bassist and backing vocalist Ross MacDonald—at Wilmslow High School in Manchester. He states that a "hippy council worker" was putting on gigs for teenagers in Manchester and Hann approached him and MacDonald about forming a band. They started off with punk-rock and pop covers, until they wrote a song. Healy was originally the drummer for the band. However, the lead singer left to join another band, so he took over the position of lead vocalist. George Daniel was then recruited as the drummer, which completed the current lineup. The group kept going from then, performing under names like Drive Like I Do, TALKHOUSE!, and The Big Sleep, until they settled with the name The 1975. A common question asked in interviews is where the band came up with their name. Healy was given a book at the age of 19, which was previously used as a diary. One of the dates written within the book was 1 June The 1975. He said the use of 'the' was very interesting and the name stuck with him. At first he did not see it as the name of his band but when they were trying to think of a new one he remembered that "and it was just perfect."

Healy is an atheist, a humanist and a Distinguished Supporter of the British Humanist Association.
