“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
Matt McGinn has been a lynch-pin on the Irish music scene for a long time. Over the years he has been the go to sessions musician for a wealth of Irish artists and as a result sharing the bill with the likes of Paul McCartney, Crowed House and Crosby Stills & Nash. But now, with his songs appearing on TV shows around the world, and the release of his second album, ‘Latter Day Sinner’, Matt has emerged as one Ireland’s singer songwriters. His list of fans includes Radio 2’s Whispering Bob Harris, Nanci Griffith and Kim Richey to name but a few.
Matt’s songs flow straight from the heart and his live performances and personality make them even more poignant.
After releasing his début album ‘Livin” in 2011 to much acclaim, Matt has enjoyed much success touring worldwide, performing with everyone from Nanci Griffith to Kim Richey. But, with the birth of his son last year, he came off the road and knuckled down to making album number two. It features contributions from many friends met along the way, from Canadian born songstress Madeleine Slate to Willie Nelson’s long-standing harmonica player, Mickey Raphael. As much as he loves being in the studio recording and producing it’s live where the magic really happens. Because of Matt’s immediate bond with an audience and surrounded by some of Ireland’s best musicians, no two shows will ever be the same.
‘McGinn elevates the congregation by his presence, humility, subtle wit, gentle banter, and sheer song-writing brilliance.’ JULIE WILLIAMS NASH reviews a LIVE MATT MCGINN CONCERT
