Distinctive and poignant, singer/songwriter River Matthews' work is reminiscent of soulful legends like Jeff Buckley and Van Morrison. Despite his young age, his is a timeless folk sound, with lyrics and arrangements that recall some of the wiser artists of yesteryear.
A trained classical guitarist from Woking, Surrey, Matthews has been playing his instrument from the age of 7. His recent forays into live music have seen him at the crest of a wave of recognition with increasingly packed-out performances.
With live shows that are by turns intimate and honest affairs, he delivers powerful stories wrought with emotion and tenderness. Think Rodriguez, Nina Simone or Amy Winehouse and you're in the right ballpark.
Don't miss your chance to see him live before he is launched into the musical stratosphere at Dublin's Whelan's.
