SESSIONS

JESS & MATT

This April we were joined by the lovely couple both on stage and in life, Jess and Matt Price. Jess and Matt perform an intermit stripped back BetterIncolor session, bringing you their sweet sweet harmonies and stunning Cole Clark guitars with both originals and a sneaky cover.

 

Bringing us two of their songs from their latest album ‘Wildflowers’, Jess and Matt effortlessly sing intricate harmonies, that almost seem to float around each other, as they take you on an emotional journey with their song ‘Aftermath’ and my personal favourite ‘Home Aint A Home’ and bringing it home with a bit of old school to finish with a beautiful arrangement of Halls & Oats ‘You Make My Dreams Come True’.

 

Having been in the game a while these two have given their fair share of interviews, however at BetterInColor we strive to give our audience a more reel and authentic representation of these talented artists. As we sit down with Jess and Matt you get to see the genuine care and relationship these two share both together and with their music, honestly it’s just really cool.

 

Make sure to check out Jess and Matt as they continue to tour their album ‘Wildflowers’ and connect with them on their socials for all new music.
