crys matthews e1523548292696 mediumThis week on Art of the Song our guest is singer-songwriter and music educator, Crys Matthews. A North Carolina native who now calls Herndon, Virginia home, she blends Americana, folk, jazz, blues, bluegrass, and funk into a bold, complex performance steeped in traditional melodies and punctuated by honest, original lyrics.

A prolific lyricist and composer, Crys Matthews has found inspiration in her surroundings. Thoughtful, realistic, and emotional, her songs speak to the voice of our times and remind us why music indeed soothes the soul. Coming up in the second half of the show, Viv Nesbitt offers an essay on “Balance” for the Creativity Corner

Art of the Song can be heard Thursday nights at 11:00 pm on KRCB FM Radio 91 / streaming @ norcalpublicmedia.org / Listen on the go - download the FREE KRCB mobile app from the App Store & Google Play!
