Matthew E. White

Venue Lennox Theatre
Dates 16 January 2016


Trying to resist Matthew E. White’s luscious country soul sound is like trying not to lick your

lips while you’re eating an ice-cream, such is its utter deliciousness. On record, his velvet croon matches rock’n’roll, gospel and soul stylings to swoonsome effect: Big Inner (2013) and Fresh Blood (2015) won international critical acclaim, drawing on such past masters as Ray Charles, The Band and Jorge Ben. But live, White’s incredibly tight quartet perform his songs with hip-shaking grooves and fiery sensuality. Ecstatic crowd singalongs are a big part of the experience.
