Details

Matt York grew up in Oakville, Ontario, near Toronto, but from the sound of his second album, Mine, he should have been raised across the border in Detroit. York is a blue-eyed soul singer who shows off the influences of Stevie Wonder and (on "Someday") Bob Marley. He creates sinuous grooves based on acoustic guitar riffs or the kind of electric piano sounds that used to fill records in the 1970s, then sings over them in a tenor voice full of sand and butterscotch.
