Description

Storytelling through song is a fundamental duty of traditional music and Matthew Byrne does this brilliantly with his latest recording, Horizon Lines. Matthew Byrne released his highly-anticipated third album in 2017, and 2018 sees it released in the UK on RootBeat Records. This newest collection of traditional material explores a unique repertoire of songs from both sides of the Atlantic and continues Byrne's journey through his own unique musical lineage. A guest appearance by Matthew's dad (Joe Byrne) makes for a particularly special moment on this recording. Another highlight is an original ballad by Byrne, penned after discovering a fascinating family connection to a beautiful love story - "a traditional song just waiting to be written", as he describes it. Byrne's ever-evolving creative partnership with producer Billy Sutton shines throughout Horizon Lines with thoughtful interpretations of traditional songs anchored by Byrne's polished guitar work and commanding voice. Their treatment of the repertoire shows a mutual sense of when to build (with accompaniment from Newfoundland's finest players) and when to let a melody and story stand alone.
