Uplifting folk songs pulse to rhythmic guitar and melodic vocals. Earthy beats, spacey guitar lines and distant harmonies weave into modern-feeling folk songs.
Matt Rivers is a British indie-folk artist based in Spain. His songs are sourced from his life experiences. They are about overcoming adversity. They are about the human condition. They are about healing and love, consciousness and spirit.
Released in October 2017, his debut album ‘Nature’ was recorded in Tarifa in Southern Spain. 'Nature' is inspired by our natural world and the need to be guardians of ourselves and the planet. It is about the alchemy of transforming our lives and taking responsibility for our emotions and actions. The songs have been written over the last ten years and span a journey from his first E.P. to now.
Following the release of the album, Matt toured Europe, visiting numerous countries and cities. ‘Nature’ was produced and recorded by Matt Kemp (Kid Hyena), a Barcelona based artist and producer.
Previously based in Brighton, Matt formed a band that was sponsored by the Arts Council and the Stables in Wavendon. He was awarded a grant to develop his music and record his first E.P. ‘Some Elsewhere’. In 2011 he moved out of the UK to live and work overseas.
Matt is melody focused, drawing influence from the songs of his childhood. His music is a fusion of classic folk rock and indie music.
