Matthew O’Neill is a musical artist based in the Catskill Mountains of New York. Born in Ontario, Canada, Matthew grew up outside of Philadelphia, and spent much of his youth joyously in the Eastern woodlands.
His music embodies a deep connection to nature, spirit, and indigenous ways. He is a musical explorer searching the realms for good things to bring back to the people. To connect and express. In bridging the gap between indigenous wisdom and the contemporary world, his music offers up feelings that are fresh, wild, curious, fierce, and celebratory. His songwriting acknowledges the interconnectedness of all things and often features poetic allegory centering on non anthropocentric articulations of gratitude, joy, suffering, and loss. Reviewers have compared his work to Neil Young, David Byrne, Robbie Robertson, and Nick Cave. It has always been his goal to make the world a better place through the powers of music.
