Show review // Matthew E. White

Another promising edition to the Privatclub lineup; Matthew E. White stopped by this week to bring his mixture of crooning vocals and exceptional instrumental talent with addition of his bassist Cameron Ralston, and drummer Pinson Chanselle. The smooth and convincing sound of Matthew’s voice is like a comfy blanket wrapping around you, making you feel like all is well in the world. His songs are somewhat reminiscent of a soothing lullaby, which slowly drifts you into a dream world of love and compassion, if only for a few moments. It wouldn’t be far off to relate his music to the likes of Bon Iver, which makes sense due to collaboration with them, as well as Mountain Goats. The shows attendance was pretty decent for a Wednesday, but I can only guess that his next visit to Berlin will be in much higher demand.

Matthew recently released a charming video for ‘Steady Pace’ – so if you don’t live in Germany you can view it via youtube here.. (thanks GEMA.) Also, make sure to listen to his debut album, Big Inner, out now on Domino Records.
