Crys Matthews

Tybee Post Theater
  • Date: 2/19/2022
  • Starts: 8:00pm

Matthews 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, Matthews has found inspiration in her surroundings; from driving through the Blue Ridge Mountains to the compelling and heart-breaking love story of Richard and Mildred Loving. Thoughtful, realistic and emotional, Matthews’ song speak to the voice of our generation and remind us why music indeed soothes the soul.

She was one of ten finalists (from a pool of 5,000) in this year's NewSong Music Competition and, after performing at Lincoln Center on November 30th she was named grand-prize winner. Matthews also won the People Music Network's Social Just Songs contest at the Northeast Regional Folk Alliance.
