The best songs have the power to either heal or hurt you. When independent singer-songwriter Matt Woods is looking for a great poem or lyric, he has one main criteria: “I just want someone to break my heart in the shortest amount of time possible.” It’s the reason he carries around books by Charles Bukowski and Rupi Kaur, whose succinct words can pierce the reader right to the core — and it’s also a model for his raw and direct songwriting. With a raspy and world-weary vocal, Woods writes about the darkest realities of love, loss, and depression in futuristic soul songs that cut to the bone.

A chance encounter while flyering led to Woods signing to his management, and soon after, releasing the triumphant, gospel-inspired ballad “Impression” in 2015. In his 2016 EP Ain’t No Use, he teased out the same melancholy-yet-sultry vibe, with even more anthemic choruses and looser, funkier production. In his latest EP Re:Connection, Woods’s songwriting is more reflective and nuanced than ever.
