Straight from the Catskills of NY, Matthew O’Neill is a musical artist that is deeply passionate about the natural world. For him, music is a way to explore unique realms and to share them with others. O'Neill's music embodies a deep connection to nature, spirit, and indigenous ways.
In bridging the gab between indegenous ways and the contemporary world, his music offers up feelings that are fresh, wild, curious, fierce, and celebratory. Reviewers have compared his work to Neil Young, Robbie Robertoson, David Byrne, and Nick Cave
We're excited Matthew will be making a stop in Rhode Island! Join us at the newly remodeled Brooklyn Coffee, Tea & Guest House and experience this modern southern soul musical genius for yourself.
On this tour he’ll be performing solo, which he relishes. Here's what people have said about his latest full band recoding TROPHIC CASCADE:
“If Nick Cave and Leonard Cohen raised a child on Nature and Rock and Roll” - Kali Quinn
"Matthew O’Neill follows his vision here, a potent mind-meld of early Pink Floyd space-rock, Jerry Garcia-esque laid-back roots music, and Native American-inspired earth-and-sky spirituality....a sort of mystic shaman sketching out his dreams and hopes for the earth he loves in the language he knows best: music.” The Daily Vault
"Matthew O'Neill evokes a bittersweet emotion that is absolutely addicting." - Big Bad Buckle
