Folky Aussie songster Matt Corby got his first break as a teen, placing second on Australian Idol in 2007; two years later he signed to Communion records, under the aegis of Mumford & Sons' Ben Lovett. He's a huge hit in his homeland—his current EP, Into the Flame, went platinum—and at 21 he's trying his luck with Uncle Sam. Fans of the Mumfords' hushed, harmonic moments will love Corby's sweet, melancholy songs.
