Matt McGinn has been a lynch-pin on the Irish music scene
for a quite a while. Having travelled the world backing
major artists, it was the release of his second album
in 2015, 'Latter Day Sinner' that truly stamped his authority
as a songwriter and performer.
Daily Telegraph music editor, Martin Chilton, listed
'Latter Day Sinner' in his top folk albums of that year.
The first track, 'I'm not Looking Down Anymore', won
Matt a coveted place on the Electric Picnic's Cosby
In 2017, Matt's project 'Lessons of War' will take
him around the world collaborating with some incredible
musicians from countries affected by conflict including
those at France's infamous refugee camp at Calais.
Although at home in the studio recording and producing
it's live where the magic really happens. Matt's immediate
bond with an audience whilst surrounded by some of Ireland's
best musicians, mean no two shows will ever be the same.
"Darkest Before the Day, what a truly beautiful
track... Matt, your album is superb. I've seen Matt
play live, he's fantastic... and Latter Day Sinner is
a beautiful album." BOB HARRIS - Radio 2
