Scott Matthew writes songs that have immediacy. They reach listeners through a combination of simplicity and elegance, but most importantly through the unusually soulful intensity of Scott’s voice. Several of Scott's songs are heard in the film Shortbus, where they help to express the emotional heart of that sometimes outrageous movie. Australian-born, now Brooklyn-based Scott Matthew joins host David Garland in the WNYC Studio to talk about his songs and to perform them with bassist Eugene Lemcio and pianist Marisol Limon Martinez.
