River Matthews, a UK-based children’s music therapist turned singer/songwriter, releases his debut EP, Feels Like Morning.

The music of River Matthews flows from a uniquely timeless place. His distinctive voice, reminiscent of artists like Jeff Buckley and Sixto ‘Sugarman’ Rodriguez, creaks and rasps with wisdom and experience. His patient, personal blend of soul and folk effortlessly transcends eras and genres.

Produced by Jamie Scott (Michael Kiwanuka, One Direction, Ron Sexsmith, Jessie Ware) and Luke Potashnick (Temperance Movement, Gabrielle Aplin), River’s debut EP deals with themes of new beginnings, honesty, love and loss. In addition to the soaring and upbeat title track, the EP also includes “Catherine” and “Over” - two beautiful ballads capable of bringing giants to their knees - as well as the poetic “Stars.”

Though his love for music and performing exists since childhood, River's relationship with songwriting developed over time. His experience working at a school in his hometown of Woking, UK, using music as a form of therapy for children with special needs, helped River deepen his connection to music. The school further invested in the program by building a music studio, which in turn encouraged River’s own music career. Throughout his journey, River remains characteristically modest and authentic.

“I really don’t have any set theories about how my music works. I just need it somehow to feel right to me, that’s all. Nothing much more than that.”

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
