NewSong: Crys Matthews

NewSong Music presents Crys Matthews, a singer-songwriter and the grand prize winner of the 2017 international NewSong Music Competition. A southeastern North Carolina native who now calls Herndon, Virginia home, Matthews blends Americana, folk, jazz, blues, bluegrass and folk into a bold, complex performance steeped in traditional melodies and punctuated by honest, original lyrics. Her newest recording project These Old Hands will be released later this year.
