Introducing >>> Matthew Heller

We’ve been sat on this one a little too long, but Portland based singer-songwriter Matthew Heller is well worth discovering.

Latest album Invitation is a collection of songs that are as gritty and as raw as you could wish for – shot through with anger, hope, and despair, they rage, burn and reflect both his own experiences, and the wider world, in a way that stirs a maelstrom of emotions.

From withering political comment to slow, swirling heroin addiction laments, by way of blues, folk and good old rock’n’roll, it is an unflinching and honest rare gem in a too often insipid and contrived musical landscape.
