WildKat PR welcomes Village Green and John Matthias

Tuesday 26th November 2013

WildKat PR is delighted to welcome label Village Green, and composer and musician, John Matthias to our roster.

Village Green is a London based independent recording and publishing company. They are a broad platform for artists operating in the worlds of alternative pop, modern classical, minimalism, electro-acoustic and ambient music. WildKat PR will be working with their whole roster of clients, covering a huge range of genres, including artists such as John Matthias, Mint Julep, Snow Palms, Adrian Corker and Chris Morphitis.

John Matthias is an award-winning musician, singer and composer who has collaborated with many recording artists including Radiohead and Coldcut. He has performed extensively in venues such as the Wordless Music Series in New York, The Pompidou Centre in Paris and at Shepherd’s Bush Empire in London.  John’s previous album, ‘Cortical Songs’ (Neoclassical 2008) was listed as one of the top ten classical albums by Time Out (Chicago) in 2009.

John Matthias’s latest album, ‘Geisterfahrer’, is released on the Village Green Label in February 2014. The disc includes a mixture of material: new works written and performed by John Matthias and Andrew Prior for the new dance-theatre work, ‘Eden’, by Company Chameleon and choreographed by Jonathan Goddard and Gemma Nixon; as well as being partly recorded at a 600 year-old school in Ashburton, Devon, with the unique and fantastic acoustic of this space being reproduced onto all of the other tracks on the album by producers, Simon Honywill and Jay Auborn.

The thirteen stunning tracks were recorded in two sessions with John Matthias performing on piano, violin and guitar, with all of his vocal performances being recorded live alongside the guitar parts. The album will be re-created live at the ‘Thinking Music’ themed Peninsula Arts Contemporary Music Festival, Plymouth University on February 9th 2014.
