Matthews Brings “Best Music” Reputation to Campus

January 20, 2009

BLOOMINGTON, Ill. – Singer/songwriter Cameron Matthews, a St. Louis native and student at St. Louis University, will perform in the Hansen Student Center (300 Beecher St., Bloomington) at 8 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 30.  The event is free and open to the public.

Last year, Matthews was featured on the MTVU Best Music on Campus Invasion Tour in Austin, TX, where he opened for The Academy Is, The Rapture, The Shins and Shiny Toy Guns.

Matthews draws the inspiration for his folk-rock sound from artists like Elliot Smith, Ryan Adams and Bob Dylan.  His second CD, Green. Blue. White., was released in November.
