“While probably best remembered in the United States for his 1978 smash “Shake It” (#13 Billboard Pop Singles), Iain Matthews has been a worldwide music icon for more than 45 years.
Whether as a founding member of Fairport Convention, Matthews Southern Comfort (who hit #23 with their cover of Joni Mitchell’s “Woodstock” in 1971), Plainsong or as a solo artist, Matthews has taken listeners on a journey with each recording.
Matthews declares that The Art of Obscurity ‘absolutely sits up there with my four or five finest recorded moments.’
In his liner notes, he states, ‘The Art of Obscurity will be my last solo album. It will however, not be my final recording. Music is in my blood. Music motivates me. Music is my mistress.’” <MUSIC NEWS NASHVILLE>
