DAUDI MATSIKO – DEBUT ALBUM LAUNCH SHOW
In association with Acoustickle.
Nottingham based, British-Ugandan singer-songwriter Daudi Matsiko carefully crafts modern albeit reverent folk. Deft, melancholic picking reminiscent of Nick Drake is tempered by contemporary percussion and instrumentation.
Matsiko’s vocals derive their strength from their seeming fragility. With every song, his confessional lyrics cut to the marrow. After releasing two independent EPs, ‘A Brief Introduction to Failure’ and ‘The Lingering Effects of Disconnection’, he has toured with GoGo Penguin, Keaton Henson and Portico Quartet whilst also being a participant of the Red Bull Music Academy in Montreal 2016.
2023 has seen the release of new singles ‘oMo’, ‘Fool Me As Many Times As You Like’, ‘Hymn’, and ‘I Am Grateful For My Friends’ which have received support from Gilles Peterson on Worldwide FM and BBC 6 Music as well as Lauren Laverne, and have been featured in several Spotify editorial playlists including The Most Beautiful Songs in the World, The Other list, The Listening Post and Fresh Finds. In November 2023, Matsiko also featured and performed on episode 215 of The Adam Buxton Podcast.
After receiving a standing ovation at this years The Great Escape Festival in Brighton, Matsiko’s much anticipated debut album is expected January 19th 2024.
