Matthew Santos - December's Ghost

TUESDAY BLUES

Do you like Singer/Songwriters/Alt-Country/Americana or Indie-Folk, or do you have a unhealthy affection to the sadness, if so you may have a case of the Tuesday Blues!


Matthew Santos - December's Ghost (2010)


Best known for his collaboration and Grammy nomination with Lupe Fiasco on the single "Superstar",  Singer/Songwriter & Painter Matthew Santos is a bit of a surprise.  Despite is early connections with hip-hop (if that is what you can call it), his real strength is as a singer/songwriter and his indie/folk roots.  December's Ghost demonstrates his talent and comparisons with Buckley are spot on.  This features on his 2010 album, This Burning Ship of Fools.

He's currently working on a new album via Pledge Music and is worth a punt - go on, pledge something - there's nothing better than supporting an artist! 



If you are a fan of Men with Beards, like the gentle stroking of a six-string, or just a miserable bugger, Subscribe to our Spotify playlist and read more Tuesday Blues here!  Do you have a musical memory? Send us the Submit a Guest Spot and we'll feature it!

Blimey, he does like 'Grace', doesn't he? Still, he has a good voice and if he finds own thing he might be very good. Nice strings.

I read Singing Bear's comment and wondered 'just how Jeff Buckley can he be?' The answer is very! Hugely talented for sure, but needs to forge his own path.
