Sylvan Weekends (Matthew, Freya & Daniel) was born in the forest, in the summer of 2022, a symphonic fusion of contradiction: London meets wilderness, tech meets off-grid, and folk meets electro. The ethos of contrast is seeded through every track and lyric and the melding of opposing worlds - banjos with synths, timpani with arpeggiator - creates an immersive experience to tingle your deepest intuitive desires. 


Unified vocals from co-writers/producers Matthew & Freya cut through with emotional resonance: one octave up resonates at twice the frequency. 


Nobody fits perfectly into one box and neither does their music.


Assigning a genre is tricky - but getting a tune stuck in your head won’t be.


Matthew fronts successful folk band Keston Cobblers Club with whom he has built an illustrious live career, including an arena support tour with Paul Heaton & Jaqui Abbot of Beautiful South, Bellowhead, selling out Union Chapel as KCC & playing festivals such as Glastonbury, Bestival & Wilderness. His songwriting has earned raucous praise from BBC Legends such as Bob Harris, Dermot O’Leary (“Every song is an absolute killer...They’re terrific”) & Steve Lamacq (“One of the best new discoveries I’ve made”).


Freya has earned a reputation for instrumental music under Freya Lily (“absolutely astounding, a melodic masterclass”) & folk music alike (“like Laura Marling meets Jade Bird”). She’s had regular podcast features on BBC Sounds, & through work as a session vocalist with LCV has performed with legends including Basement Jaxx, The Staves, Imogen Heap, Jools Holland, & more, in a host of epic venues such as The Southbank Centre, EartH Hackney & Barbican


Daniel has completed 3 studio albums, and 7 European tours as part of folk band Stables (with Matthew), and played festivals across Europe including Glastonbury and Cambridge Folk Festival, during which he’s the king of multi-tasking - falsetto harmonies, ukulele and drums all at the same time.
