Matthew Green / Bio

Singer/Songwriter Matthew Green weaves sincere and haunting tales of maturing and heartbreak, rooted in the folk music tradition, with classical and pop elements and a playful stage show. Matthew’s most recent release, 2010’s Little Howl, unfolds like a fluid chamber piece and sounds organic and self-assured. Joined in the studio by his current band (Steven Duckworth on cello and Sarah Gliko on keyboards and backing vocals, with the help of Philly favorite Dante Bucci on drums and percussion) and helmed by Ted Richardson’s subtle production, the group has created an elegant and emotive backdrop for Green's guitar, distinctive vocals and intimate lyrics. The songs themselves are varied, but at the core indicate a settling in to one's own life. Throughout this journey we find the artist learning to trust the howl. It may be little, but worth making, and worth listening for...

Matthew hails from the suburbs of Philadelphia, but spent time in Arizona and then New York City where he performed regularly -most notably with the NY Singer/Songwriter Sessions at such legendary venues as CBGB's and The Bitter End. Since returning to Philadelphia he has released three recordings (2005’s The Whiplash of Memory, 2007's Of My Tribe, and 2010’s Little Howl) and is active in the Philadelphia music scene. In early 2009, he placed in the finals of the Beta Hi-Fi Songwriter Competition at World Cafe Live in Philadelphia in association with the NY Songwriters Circle and World Cafe. Matthew will be heading into the studio with a new batch of songs to be released in 2014.
