I am absolutely love everything that Matthew E. White touches. His two albums and his studio, Spacebomb, are forces to be reckoned with. I truly think that White is a visionary and one of the pioneers of this generation of music.
Needless to say, I was excited to hear that he was teaming up with British singer/songwriter Flo Morrissey for an eclectic album of covers. Here’s the list below and a couple of samples.

The 20-year-old English singer-songwriter Flo Morrissey is an old soul in the way that her lyrics are tethered to her teenage experiences, but her velveteen voice has a classic, ageless quality that makes her music relate to young and old alike.

Her debut album is out on Glassnote Records in the early part of 2015 and with a string of festival appearances this summer, and recently released first single, Pages of Gold.”  this track taken from the album is the follow up release showcasing her beautiful vocals

Time can feel long.. I wrote this song when I was fifteen, but it also seems so recent to me haha which probably makes no sense.. Though I feel through these words I have learned to understand where I was coming from and all the while letting myself love the things that were before.. so this song is a mixture of nostalgia and the longing and unknowing. The newest version of ‘Show Me’ from ‘Tomorrow Will Be Beautiful’ I do hope you like it

Flo Morrissey at 17 she uploaded a song she wrote to the internet, with a video starring her sisters, and it was spotted by Devendra Banhart’s manager, who she now works with. She is signed to Glassnote Records, the label that helped Mumford & Sons and CHVRCHES make it, and this summer her beautiful, folky sets were a highlight of Green Man Festival, Wilderness and SXSW.
Much of her music is inspired by her family, and if Morrissey is tired of being asked about them she shows no sign of it. “My family are a really big focus, not just on what I write but what I wear and who I am.”. Music was always around when she was growing up. “My mum studied piano to grade eight and my dad has good music taste — he introduced me to Devendra Barnhart.”
She’s recently returned from recording her debut album in Los Angeles and is honing material ahead of the release of her first single, Pages of Gold, in November and the album early next year , soundcloud.com/flomorrissey
