Letley attended Sir Joseph Williamson's Mathematical School, in Rochester, Kent. His first recordings, with his brother Mark's progressive rock band Sindelfingen, were made when he was only 12; a live track including him was added to a CD reissue of their rare album Odgipig (he joined after the recording of the original album). As a drummer he played for a number of well-known artists, including a-ha, Bob Geldof, Vanessa Mae, Hank Marvin and Kim Wilde. In April 2015 Matt Letley produced and recorded drum section for the song of Russian alternative rock band 208 Talks of Angels.

Having joined Status Quo in 2000, his first tour with the band was in Germany. In 2006, Letley was part of Status Quo's Just Doin' It tour. Since joining the band Letley often performed a drum solo, 'The Killer', as part of the song "Gerdundula". When "Gerdundula" was dropped from the Quo set, his solo was typically performed during "In the Army Now".
