Matthew's Music
Matthew's 2nd EP "Cross My Heart" is available on iTunes and AmazonYou can order a physical copy online HERE. We hope you will check it out! Thanks for your support!

"It's not just that the 16-year-old Matthew Davidson writes his own music, a considerably rare thing among blues prodigies. And it's not just that he deftly combines these rootsy leanings with towering pop hooks. It's not just his boyish good looks, either. It's all of that, as Davidson crafts a sophomore project that is as intriguing as it is offbeat. In the end, Cross My Heart is both a blues record that often moves far afield from the blues, and a pop record with real soul. And it works, principally because of the endless approachability that Davidson brings to things." ~Nick DeRiso, Something Else Reviews, May 14, 2014
