Matt Winson is a Dutch/Latvian indie folk band. The band initially was a collaboration between singer/guitarist Matthijs Steur and multi-instrumentalist Pieter van Winsen. Searching for a richer and more dynamic sound, the band expanded with drummer Thomas van Winsen and in late 2014 with Latvian trumpet player Magnuss Baugis. Gradually, the band has developed a distinctive sound built around vocal harmonies, thought-provoking lyrics and a wide range of instruments. Matt Winson creates accessible, progressive folk music that incorporates elements of bluegrass, jazz and pop. In July 2015 they released their first EP "Glowing Eyes" with a sold out show at Gebr. de Nobel in Leiden, followed by an international tour through Germany and the Baltics. The EP was picked up by Dutch radio stations 3fm and Radio 1 and drew the attention of several major record labels. In the beginning of 2016 the band signed a record deal with V2 Records Benelux and recorded their first album - titled "Woodfalls" - in the renowned Wisseloord Studios, collaborating with producer Frederic Gervais and Grammy award winning mixing engineer Balazs Robert. The first single "The River" was presented in August, followed by second single "Into Pieces" in late December. The album itself was released on February 10th, 2017. In spring 2017 the band did an extensive album release tour in the Netherlands with shows at a.o. Paradiso, Patronaat and Paard van Troje, several of which were sold out. The Dutch tour was followed by another international tour through the Baltics.
