Keeping our promise to bring you great entertainment!
Hailed as one of the most exciting new singer-songwriters on the acoustic music scene, Matthew Shepherd is a 22 year-old singer-songwriter who has been delighting audiences in London, Essex and beyond with his collection of self penned songs.
His debut studio album ‘Top of the tree’ was released in June 2015 and only took a day for the album to break into the iTunes Top 100 Singer/Songwriter Album Chart. His songs cover the happiness and heartbreak of love, with his warm, intimate and delicate style.
July 2016 sees the release of the much-awaited Acoustic EP entitled ‘The Sea’.
With club and concert performances plus 2 European tours under his belt, Matthew is currently embarking on a UK Tour and I’m sure we will be hearing more from this stunning talent in the months and years to come.
We are delighted to be welcoming him to Epping Folk Club this Summer.
