Matthew Mcghie - Acoustic Guitarist / Vocalist - East of England Event Location: Woodlands Creatures, Edinburgh Event Type: Open Mic 14th June 2018
Scott Candlish, our excellent host for the evening, introduced our first act Matthew Mcghie, making his OOTB debut. Matthew was an innovative performer with an impressive vocal dynamic range. ‘Open’ showcased his high-pitched, guttural singing while telling an aching story of goodbyes which kept me intrigued from start to finish. ‘Love’ was written in the last week and hinted at an unhappy experience (sample lyric: “you will suffocate until you drown”). Again, he used his voice as a powerful instrument and this was deeply affecting.

Music fans say Matthew’s singing style is reminiscent of Neil Young, while his songs show a fragility and soulful, storytelling nature. Go see him live for yourself and check out his record. Infinite hive label , Edinburgh
