Matt Deighton - OVERSHADOWED


Sky Arts





OVERSHADOWED tells the story of Matt Deighton, a hugely respected and loved artist within the British music industry. Front man for the 90’s acid jazz band ‘Mother Earth’, Paul Weller’s guitarist of choice and Noel Gallagher’s replacement in ‘Oasis’. But who is he? Critically acclaimed yet an underground secret. Who is Matt Deighton?

Matt guides us on a tour through his life, his music and performances, exploring the challenges of mental health and musicianship. Accompanied by some of his friends and collaborators including Chris Difford, Bill Fay, Paul Weller, Marti Pellow and Carleen Anderson.

Watch Overshadowed on SKY TV on-demand, NowTV and Guidedoc.

We were thrilled that OVERSHADOWED was chosen as part of the official selection for the Melbourne Documentary Film Festival 2023.
