In 2005, he joined the Essex alternative rock and acoustic band called Darwyn as its lead singer; the band released the albums “When You Wake” and “Little Sunlight” in the following two years, and went on to play at various festivals, but in 2009 Darwyn disbanded, and Cardle joined a new band, an alternative and indie rock group called Seven Summers. They released a self-titled album in 2010, achieving limited success. Regardless, Matt’s net worth was established.
