The Tea: Crys Matthews
Crys Matthews features in this online series in which women musicians perform original work. Each session includes a short interview, conducted over a cup of tea, exploring the artist’s creative process.
Matthews blends Americana, folk, jazz, blues, bluegrass, and funk into a bold, complex performance steeped in traditional melodies and punctuated by honest, original lyrics. Compared to musicians as wide-ranging as Toshi Reagon, Tracy Chapman, and Ruthie Foster for her eclectic infusion of genres, Matthews has won honorable mentions at the 2013 and 2014 Mid-Atlantic Song Contest and extensive radio play from Women of Substance radio. Matthews has shared stages with Melissa Ferrick, Chris Pureka, and Liz Longley, as well as regional artists such as Owen Danoff, Eliot Bronson, and Heather Mae.
