Crys Matthews

Already being hailed as “the next Woody Guthrie,” Crys Matthews is among the brightest stars of the new generation of social justice music-makers. A powerful lyricist whose songs of compassionate dissent reflect her lived experience, this black, lesbian, and proud Southerner’s music falls broadly into the realm of folk, country and Americana. Matthews’s thoughtful, realistic and emotional songs speak to the voice of a generation and remind us why music not only soothes the soul, but can fire you up!
