Expatriate Matthew Sheens has made impressive progress after moving to New York just a few years ago and winning a Downbeat Student Award in 2009.
His debut album of originals, Every Eight Seconds, was widely acclaimed and this concert serves as a launch to his new album, Cloud Appreciation Day.
Drawing on influences ranging from West African grooves to 20th Century poetry, Cloud Appreciation Day promises to be an exciting and unique musical experience.
Matthew is returning with Adelaide bassist Lyndon Gray, drummer Tim Firth, vocalist/songwriter Gian Slater and guitarist Hugh Stuckey.
Cloud Appreciation Day was made possible by the APRA/ AMCOS Professional Development Awards.
Praise for Matthew Sheens:
‘Sheens is an original composer, one whose melodic and rhythmic ideas championed narrative over virtuosity. Sheens weaves a little minimalist magic.’ All About Jazz
