Matthew E. White “Big Love” // WKNC’s The Lounge
Richmond songwriter Matthew E. White paid a visit to WKNC before his December show at King’s to perform an alternate version of “Big Love,” a cut off his debut album Big Inner. This is the forth session of The Lounge, which has been described by Indy Week as “a good way to hear tunes you might know in a different context."
Matthew E. White, founder of Spacebomb Records in Richmond, Virginia, is also head of the jazz band Fight the Big Bull and was also a member of rock group The Great White Jenkins. Big Inner, which was released in 2012, can best be described from the following excerpt via his website: " Whether you’re a woman or man, White’s mournful, get-it-on voice may be all you can hear: I don’t want to live a day longer than you, so let’s meet the Lord together. You can call it soul music if you want. It’s his soul and it’s his music.” Big Inner is composed of seven songs and is the first release from Spacebomb Records.
Matthew E. White has also collaborated with Justin Vernon, Sharon Van Etten, Megafaun, and The Mountain Goats.
