Matt Berry is best known for playing idiots in award winning comedy shows such as 'The I.T. Crowd', 'Garth Marenghi's Darkplace', 'Snuff Box' and 'The Mighty Boosh' but he is a celebrated musician and composer in his own right.

As a musician, he composed all music for Snuff Box as well the music for AD/BC: A Rock Opera, which he co-wrote with Richard Ayoade. AD/BC was a half-hour parody of overblown musicals in general and Jesus Christ Superstar in particular, telling the story of the innkeeper who allowed Mary, Joseph, and the baby Jesus to sleep in his manger. AD/BC was broadcast in December 2004 and featured Fulcher and The Mighty Boosh stars Julian Barratt and Noel Fielding. The DVD was released in the UK on 19 November 2007. He also performed a song for an episode of Garth Marenghi's Darkplace entitled One Track Lover, a spoof of cheesy romantic 80s songs.

Berry also composed music for the BBC 2 Steve Coogan comedy Saxondale and appeared in the first and third episodes of the second series of the show. He composed the theme song for the Channel 4 sketch show Blunder. He is also credited on The Peter Serafinowicz Show.

He has released one album Opium which was a limited edition self-released record and will now release his debut album proper Witchazel in March 2011, coming out on Acid Jazz Records. He toured with Jonas 3 several times in 2006 and 2007. He stated in the first issue of Bearded Magazine that he was producing and collaborating on new material with sixties soul singer Geno Washington and was to record a new album. This album turned out to be Witchazel, which Berry released online for a limited time free download on 11 March 2009 only. The album will now be officially released and will be available in stores in March 2011.
