333 Coffeehouse
Crys Matthews

Friday Jan 19, 2018 at 7:30 PM to 10:00 PM
Annapolis Friends Meeting (Annapolis,MD)

333 presents singer-songwriter Crys Mathews. We love her warm, flexible and slightly husky voice. She accompanies herself with rhythmically sharp guitar playing - her overall style is rooted in American folk and pop idioms, but with an edge of blues, gospel, maybe even funk. She's been attracting a lot of critical praise (and recently some notable awards) for her compositions. Come check her out!

Biography: DC's Crys Matthews is nothing if not ambitious. In August 2017, she simultaneously released both a new full-length album, The Imagineers, and an EP, Battle Hymn For An Army Of Lovers. These collections showcase two sides of Matthews’ dynamic songwriting; Imagineers is a selection of thoughtful songs about love and life, while Battle Hymn tackles social justice themes. Songs from both projects have already won her recognition and awards. She was one of ten finalists (from a pool of 5,000) in the NewSong Music Competition and, after performing at Lincoln Center, she was named grand-prize winner. Matthews also won the People’s Music Network Social Justice Songs Showcase at the 2017 Northeast Regional Folk Alliance conference.


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 dynamic and engaging presence on stage, she's equally at home in an acoustic listening room or at a music festival. She's been compared to Toshi Reagon, Tracy Chapman, Ruthie Foster and Pat Humphries, but her art exhibits a highly individual personality, always engaged, tuned to the "now."
