Matt Townsend and The Wonder of the World’s self-titled debut LP (Indie folk/Folk rock) is a lyrically driven album featuring 9 songs written by Matt Townsend. Some dressed in full band regalia, featuring swelling organs, ghostly musical saws, electric guitars, harmonies angelic; others more stripped down just words and voice, fingerpicked acoustics and ethereal violins.

The songs feature themes of loss and redemption, spiritual yearning, romantic longing, death, re-birth, freedom, alienation, gratitude and more.

The album was recorded at Chakra-5 studios, in Burlington, VT. Produced, Engineered and Mixed by Jamie Bright and featuring musicians from Burlington, VT, Asheville, NC and Boston, MA
