Matt Phillips

Kop van Zuid, 17.00 - 17.40 uur

Matt comes from a long line of southern preachers, born in NC to a nurse & a psychologist. His lyrics are evocative and autobiographical, alluding to biblical history, transcendentalist literature, and notes from psych 101.  With a parts guitar and a dynamic duo of guitar amps in tow, his tone is warm and familiar.

In his 24 short years, he's accumulated 10.000 hours of performance experience from the North Carolina Boys Choir to the street corners of Chapel Hill. Matt will tell you the hardest truths in the sweetest way: “I must be onto something, ‘cause I smile when I play the blues.”
