With a fierce passion for songwriting and live performance, J.K. Matthews is looking to burst into the music scene with his new perspective on Alternative music. With an extensive background in Jazz, Country, and Blues, Matthews is drawn to the inner workings of the songwriting process.
Songwriting has become Matthews’ domain for self-expression, creativity, and musical development. Writing consistently since the age of 11, Matthews looks to pay homage to the greats that came before him and aims to hone the craft in each one of his works. He is influenced by and often likened to artists such as City and Colour, John Mayer, and Chris Stapleton.
Through thoughtful lyricism and captivating melodies, J.K. Matthews weaves intricate plots and raw emotion into each song. His careful attention to his music allows the listener to get lost within layers of cascading instrumentation and sophisticated rhythms all while still fitting into the popular music vein. His music combines hints of Blues with Country lyricism and R&B harmony to form a unique blend of Alternative music.
With an EP due out in the spring of 2019, J.K. Matthews is already working on his next release.
