About the new album ‘Like A Radio’ Leo Blokhuis says..

Dutch radio icon Leo Blokhuis commented on the new album ‘Like A Radio’ and he says..

“…This fine record oozes with the excitement that making music can give: beautiful melodies, very well sung and arranged to great taste.  An album from the Dutch Southern sandy soil with a sound that blends influences from the American Westcoast and British folk in moving popsongs a band like Crowded House could also produce. Everything tightly connected by the instantly recognizable, fine voice of Iain Matthews. Great album!”

New single out now!

Here’s the single from the upcoming Matthews Southern Comfort album ‘Like A Radio’.. here’s ‘Bits and Pieces’..
