Life Like Water
The best way to live / is to be like water / for water benefits all things / and goes against none of them.
Life Like Water is the creation of David Matters and is a musical response to a life in transition. From his early days of living in a van and playing punk rock music, to hitchhiking across the country with a banjo strapped on his back, to his current attempt at wedding his family life with the unsteady path of a folk musician, David continues to use his own transience as a source of inspiration for his songwriting.
Together, with his bandmates Megan Drollinger and Charles Furtado, his music has developed a sound that straddles the edges of contemporary folk and traditional music from around the world. With a focus on trance-inducing, finger-style guitar, elegant vocal harmonies, and melodies that contain flavors of Africa and the Middle East, the music of Life Like Water possesses a dark edge with a wonderfully uplifting finish.
