Album Notes
MATTHEW ALEXANDER

MUSICAL BIOGRAPHY




Matthew Alexander has been playing guitar since he was eight years old and writing songs since he was fifteen. His unique finger picking acoustic guitar style was modeled after Dave Van Ronk and Mississippi John Hurt. His award winning songwriting style has been influenced by such greats as Gordon Lightfoot, Bob Dylan and Paul Simon. His songs have been published by Warner Brothers Music, Beechwood-Capital and Four Star Music among others.

Matthew was part of the dynamic folk music scene in Cambridge, Massachusetts in the late ‘60s and was a regular performer at Boston’s coffeehouses. As a solo artist and as founding member of the folk-trio Moonshine, Matthew opened in the early seventies for Bruce Springsteen, Bonnie Raitt and Billy Joel. Since then he has performed at venues around the country including the New Music Showcase in Atlanta, Georgia; the Ark in Ann Arbor, Michigan; the Troubador and the Songwriters Showcase in Los Angeles, California; and the Double Door and the Latta Plantation Folk Festival in Charlotte, North Carolina. He has won awards for his music from the Northeastern Music Festival and Songwriters Guild of Nashville, Tennessee.

Matthew has released four discs on Caravan Records: Wishing I Had Wings (1987), April Heart (1992), American Boy (1999) and Daredevil Angel (2008). His recordings have received critical acclaim. Mark Price of the Charlotte Observer said that his disc American Boy was, “a breath of fresh air that should have a place in everyone’s record collection”.

“The qualities that earned Creative Loafing raves for Alexander’s ’87 album are still in evidence on the new one: romanticism, snappy melodies in a pop/folk setting, a clear vision and a good heart” John Grooms, Editor, Creative Loafing

“A rave review” Peter Basoa, Radio Rider
