Matt Simons – Baby’s All Right (Brooklyn, NY)
The Brooklyn-based pop prodigy plays AWAL's debut Northside Festival party, a night featuring a lineup of emerging talent. Simons' virtuosic piano and guitar playing find a blissful middle ground between Ed Sheeran and George Ezra, but he's also honed the vignette-style lyricism of James Bay, Hozier and Leon Bridges. His first three albums generated No. 1 hits in seven countries, a Triple A Top 5, over 200 million Spotify streams and multiple sold-out tours and top festival appearances including Pinkpop and Frequency.
