Matt Simons After The Landslide
‘After The Landslide’ is his biggest, most ambitious, most personal record yet. With nods to both Bon Iver, and Springsteen, it’s a record that approaches some of The Big Themes in our lives – love, loss, grief, and the power it takes to get through it all. Matt’s piano-rooted melodies ally themselves to lyrics that speak plainly, sometimes starkly, about important events in his life, and with these he crafts songs that make the personal ‘universal.’
Matt will tour Europe this Summer, including a coveted support slot for Ed Sheeran at Firenze Rocks in Florence. A full US tour will be announced later this year. ‘After The Landslide’ artwork was created by acclaimed Australian Illustrator Karen Lynch.
