2-4 SOFT POWER Jazz, Improvised Folk

  • May 20, 2017
  • Time: 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Soft Power

A musical project led by guitarist and composer Matthew Roche, Soft Power was born in early 2016 after a quarter-life crisis following a meditation retreat in 2014 led Roche to re-focus his musical and spiritual outlook. Inspired by a journey into the mind’s undertow where it is not out of the ordinary to find epiphanies and nostalgic ghosts making strange bedfellows, Roche brings together a 3 piece band to present ‘A Breath Is Like a Swinging Door’. Re-imagined live, his debut album features music that traverses jazz harmony with fluid rock orientated grooves and wordless melodies that recall a pop vernacular of childlike innocence.
