Our tribute to The Overtones' Timmy Matley

Town Hall Symphony Hall are deeply saddened to hear of the passing of Timmy Matley. The Overtones’ singer had been battling skin cancer after he was diagnosed with stage three malignant melanoma in 2016.

The Overtones last performed at Symphony Hall in December 2017, with a stocking rammed full of Christmas crackers including White Christmas, Santa Claus Is Coming To Town and Let It Snow.

THSH have welcomed The Overtones more than 6 times to perform in Birmingham, with over 13,000 people seeing the group in the city. Having firmly established themselves as the number 1 vocal harmony group, the group have sold over a million records and had five Top 5 albums.

We are deeply saddened to hear that Timmy Matley has passed away. I know audiences who have seen him perform countless times with The Overtones at Symphony Hall will be equally upset at hearing this news. Our thoughts are with Timmy’s friends, family and fellow band mates at this time.
