The River Has Many Voices Covers Bonnie “Prince” Billy

The River Has Many Voices Covers Bonne Prince Billy

We have posted before about Matthew Payne, aka The River Has Many Voices who lives and writes in the Texas Hill Country around Austin, TX.

A Southern Appalachian musician by birth, his influences range from Raymond Carver, T.S. Eliot, J.D. Salinger via Vincent Van Gogh and Jackson Pollock to Townes Van Zandt, Bob Dylan and the great American blues artists.

Appropriate then that he should offer up this rather special cover of one of our favourite Bonnie “Prince” Billy tunes, the sublime You Will Miss Me When I Burn as part of Slowcoustic’s latest covers project, the excellent Songs of Will Oldham.
