Singer-songwriter M FRENCH has quickly become a regular on the burgeoning Twin Cities Americana music scene. Known for his positive and uplifting live shows, French's melodies transport and his lyrics tell a story. Our story. A human story. Raised in small town Ohio and now residing in Minneapolis, French released his EP Winding Road in 2016. Building on the success of Winding Road, French's debut full length album, Sweet Love, releases in the Fall of 2018. Sweet Love offers 10 original songs exploring the Americana landscape. Produced by Danny O’Brien (The Farewell Circuit, DEM YUUT), and recorded during the long Minnesota winter of 2018, the tracks provide a sonic foundation built upon catchy guitar hooks, and the blending of pedal steel and synth lines. French unpacks universal themes of love, kindness and community with a conversational lyricism that invites the listener to find themselves in his stories. M French's audiences feel themselves reflected in the warmth of his voice. Not strangers, just unmet friends.
WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
"Matthew's stories, though his own, feel familiar. They reach in to me to conjure memories of people I have known and times I have had. And there I sense that we are connected through our humanity—but more than fellow passengers, we are companions on a journey through life. M French is more than a classic American troubadour, he is—if you’ll let him be, a guide and fellow traveler." Brian, RiverSong Music Festival
