Primordial longing

It was his soft bass voice, melancholy melodies and themes that touch the heart that made Scott Matthew famous. Everyone's primordial longing to be loved can be heard in every single ballad on his promising new album, «Life Is Long». The Australian-born musician, who reached a wider audience with his score to the film, «Shortbus», will be performing with a top-class band and «Madredeus»-legend Rodrigo Leão. What combines both musicians is the – from a musical point of view highly unusual – search for beauty in mournfulness and melancholy. This is the way to get through life’s rough seas!
