Matt Townsend and the Wonder of the World


Matt TownsendDesire Like a Lion

Matt Townsend and The Wonder of the World formed in 2014 with the creation of singer/songwriter Matt Townsend’s debut LP “Matt Townsend and the Wonder of the World” (June 2014; Eternal Mind Records).

Matt Townsend (b.1987) began writing songs in secret around 2008 and began performing in 2010. Initially busking on the streets of Burlington, VT and playing local coffeehouses, he soon began gracing the stages of clubs and venues around the Burlington area. His first solo EP “What Light Shall Be” was released in November 2012. He has since performed on stages in Vermont, Boston, Ireland, Western North Carolina more.

Influenced by the songwriting of Bob Dylan, Neutral Milk Hotel, Townes Van Zandt, Neil Young, William Blake, and many many more, Townsend’s songs “connect universally while remaining personally vulnerable”.

Inspired by strange dreams and visions, the precarious beauty of human life, and the mysterious forces of the Universe, Matt Townsend’s songs emerge out of the folk tradition, rock and roll and more, with a lyrical approach from the view-point of the soul.

His crowd-funded debut LP with a full-band entitled “Matt Townsend and The Wonder of the World” is due for release in June on Eternal Mind Records.

He now lives in Asheville, NC by way of Burlington, VT.
