Matt Townsend and The Wonder of the World formed in 2014 around the release of singer/songwriter Matt Townsend\’s debut LP by the same named. With a sound called Folk-Rock by some, Heliocentric Dream Folk by others, combining an acoustic and electric sound that is born from the lineage of old, while living wholly in the now.
Inspired by strange dreams and visions, the madness and beauty of the world around us, and the untouchable truth of the Universe itself,
Matt Townsend\’s songs \”connect universally while remaining personally vulnerable\”.
Influenced by the songwriting of Bob Dylan, Neil Young, Neutral Milk Hotel and many many more, Townsend\’s songs emerge out of the folk tradition, the rock and roll idiom and indie/alternative pop-rock, infused with melody and subtle grace, all written and sung from a view point of the soul.
