Listen to Amiria’s albums here:
Bryony Matthews is a Christchurch based singer/songwriter by way of Golden Bay. Matthews writes unique, considered, lyrics-focused folk-pop offerings. Her accompanying guitarist Josh Holmes lends an upbeat ambiance to her beautiful songs.
Her debut album ‘Little Queen’ was released in early 2017 featuring lead single ‘Voices’; whilst the lyrics exhibit angst and confusion, the instrumentation picks it up and turns it into an upbeat, danceable track.
The crafted songwriting and purity of vision of Little Queen places her firmly in the upper stratum of NZ’s alt folk music scene.
