Watch List: Let Yourself Fall Under The Spell Of Matthew Fowler's Intimate Lyricism
Imbued with the kind of preternaturally incisive perspicacity that marks him out as a songwriter of rare ability, Florida native Matthew Fowler's folk-inflected acoustic intricacies and intimate vocal sensitivities are the conduits for his observant accounting of the hopes, dreams, fears and emotional truths that roil us all. Driven by a deeply intuitive emotional intelligence that renders an authentically honest and confessional, introspective parsing of the restless energies of the heart and mind, his eloquent songwriting is weighed with a maturity and sagacity that belie his twenty years on this earth.
With his 'Beginning' album accruing praise from the likes of American Songwriter Magazine, Acoustic Guitar Magazine, and The Huffington Post, Fowler this year embarked on a 6000 mile, 50 day and 41 show tour that included both his performing for the first time in Nashville as well as recording a session for the prestigious Daytrotter in the same city. A featured artist on Reverb Nation this past April, he also appeared on several NPR radio stations throughout the year, and, before taking a break for the new year, he made an appearance at the famed Rockwood Music Hall in in New York for this year's CMJ Music Marathon.
