• Thro My Eyes: A Memoir

Nominated for the 2019 Association for Recorded Sound Collections Awards for Excellence in Historical Recorded Sound Research

Iain Matthews is one of the music industry’s great survivors. He has been making pitch-perfect records for over fifty years. During the golden era of English folk-rock, he was lead singer with Fairport Convention, Matthews Southern Comfort and Plainsong. In the halcyon days of the West Coast singer-songwriter scene, he moved to Los Angeles, and then spent thirty years criss-crossing America with extended stays in Seattle and Austin. Today he is settled back in Europe where he continues to record and perform with some of the continent’s finest musicians. In Thro’ My Eyes he writes with a gentle candour about the highs and lows of the music business. Here is a reminder of artistic integrity and authenticity in a sometimes over-amplified world.

‘I value the times Iain has been my fellow traveller in music. He is one of the great folk/rock/pop singers and writers, and his life and music trajectory have both been extraordinary … and he keeps getting better.’ Richard Thompson
