Following an intimate tour last year, UK live favourites Striking Matches will be back this Summer with a date at Manchester’s Gorilla on the 23rd July
The musical partnership of Sarah Zimmermann and Justin Davis sweetly blends the roots of country, the realness of blues and the rawness of rock music to create the original sound of Striking Matches.
Since the release of their T Bone Burnett produced debut album ‘Nothing But Silence’ Striking Matches attracted a huge international fan base.
They’ve written songs for the “Nashville” TV series and toured with the likes of Vince Gill, Ashley Monroe, Hunter Hayes, Train and Keith Urban. The duo’s live performances have also previously been huge highlights across the UK’s Country to Country Festival weekend. The superbly talented songwriters and players released EPs ‘Shameless’, ‘Acoustic’ and ‘Retrograde’ last year.
