Matthew Santos, 4/19/2016, Parish, Austin, Photos – Write-Up


Written by Bang Ho

There are vocalists that falsetto, and then there those like Matthew Santos that command a beautiful mastery over their head voice. Performing as a one person band, he beat boxed and looped it into a cohesive song. You wouldn’t think he needed band backing until Gin Wimore’s band joined him on a song towards the end and added an extra dimension to his full sound. He was jovial and bantered with the audience in between songs, informing us Lupe Fiasco couldn’t make it and went into his 2007 hit Superstar.
