Matthew Clark: Singer / Songwriter / Storyteller

In our fast-paced media marketplace culture, connections among people so easily become utilitarian and impersonal. What sets Matthew Clark apart as an artist is his desire to slow down and make the effort to be tuned in to a richer way of living. In a hurried, dislocated world, often the music we take in is like eating candy for dinner alone. Clark’s approach is more like lingering with friends around the kitchen table over a home-cooked meal and the interweaving of life’s stories.

    Good morning. Sunrise shining through the leaves that grow up the window in my studio. It's probably poison ivy, but ain't it pretty?

    It's been a sweet weekend on the road in Fairhope, AL seeing old high school friends after many years, leading #worship with Church of the Apostles Anglican, and talking The #Arts with Wendell Kimbrough. And I picked up a beautiful new piece of #pottery! #ontheroad

    Sometimes singer/songwriters have to learn how to fix their own cars. Can't be that much different than playing guitar, right? Hope my car and I are both alive at the end of today. #pray

    'Oh crap,' said the mouse when he stumbled upon a lion in the wild. Been reading 'Legends of the Mouse Guard' while roasting coffee lately. #mouseguard #comicsandcoffee #homeroasting #storytelling

    'As a man dies many times before he's dead, so does he wend from birth to birth until, by grace, he comes alive at last.' Just finished this beautiful, tough little book by #Buechner. It burned and cooled me at the same time.

    This is a simple painting at home. It's just pleasant to me.  @samclarkart , did a Seedster paint this? #painting #makeart #foundart #payattention #boers #focalpractices

    I'm coming to accept the fact that anything I record in the studio right now is going to be accompanied by a background of cicada hum, lawn mowers, and sidewalk edgers. #lawncare #cicadamadness2015 #recording #cicadapocolypse #makeart #songamonth #songwriting

    Quirky Fact: I am jealous of folks who were homeschooled. Not everyone learns in the same ways. I love to learn, but school was always miserable for me. Today my mom told me she thought I should have been homeschooled. #affirmation #iknewit #homeschoolers #homeschool #whatsyourlearningstyle #learning #lifelonglearner #explore #wonder #curiosity

    Wow, just found out that #bbking died today. Being from small-town #mississippi and having cut my teeth as a #guitarist on #folk and #blues music, I'm so grateful for King's influence. Surreal that he's gone. #ripbbking

    Honestly, I'm just beginning to read Flannery O'Connor the last half a year. Maybe I wasn't ready, but I wish I'd started ten years ago. #mysteryandmanners #flanneryoconnor #writing #reading #fiction #storytelling
