The Silver Reserve

Had a request for a version of this song from an old friend who saw me play it live a couple of years ago in Hull. It's not one that's made it to the band set yet, but I do sometimes like to open solo sets with this if only to test just how awkward it's going to be to play sparse music with that audience!! It might not be the best take but it's the first one so close to 'live' (truthfully it's the second take but the cat ruined the first one by being dead noisy and as I don't take her to gigs that doesn't count!). It's probably called 'Only Because' but only because I haven't given much thought to what it might be called. Hope people are staying safe and keeping well. X ... See MoreSee Less

Paul Briscoe - this has taken an age to upload. Not sure if you can share to OL page but can't seem to figure out right now!

Ace mate!!

Calvin Rogers - this one's for you mate. Hope it's a decent take.

3 years since we first played @nath_brudenell opening for @roseelinor in the old games room. A rare time we got to play with @xandedwards on bass duties too and was great to meet Tom @thee_infinite_kiss . I think we played pretty well that night - good to look back on. Take care out there x ... See MoreSee Less

This is a brand new song - I knew I only had a five minute slot for this proposed live thing at The Woolpack Music & Art Studios and barely any of my songs are under five minutes. I'd also been watching Gerrard Bell-Fife play an incredible fb live thing which inspired me to tune the guitar into an extra low version of a tuning I use on quite a lot of my stuff. I don't write quickly so trying to get this 'finished' on time wasn't easy and I was still hacking it to bits and rewriting and restructuring in the small hours of this morning and it'll no doubt change again (it will almost certainly become slower- they always do!). But here it is in the form it's made it to for now! Hope everyone is keeping well. X

Don't usually post cover songs (I barely know any) but put this on my personal page and had a request to stick it up here so here it is. It's 'Let's Get Lost' by Elliott Smith and it is by no means a perfect cover but the best I got that day! Hope you enjoy. ... See MoreSee Less

So tonight I would have been playing Guiseley Theatre performing a football match length of a set in a kind of 'audience with' affair but hey ho! As an offering to those who might have been there or anyone else who cares, I give you this - possibly my shortest song! Take care people. X ... See MoreSee Less

A clip from last night at an open mic in Menston. Wondering it if might be the last performance for a little while - @hydeparkbookclub on 29th March is now cancelled and awaiting updates on other shows. Will let people know as soon as possible. We don't need you to support us with buying albums etc. as this is a much-loved hobby for us but please do support your friends who make music their work and livelihood in this way if you can. Take care people - hopefully see you out soon!

While we enjoy one event 'at the Offenbach,' we're looking forward to the next!

If you're a fan of discovering new local songwriting then be sure not to miss Matthew Sturgess//The Silver Reserve at the Offenbach on March 27th. The reviews speak for themselves!

"Matthew Sturgess is flying solo tonight and getting comfy, putting his lucky shoes on before he starts playing (his girlfriend’s Dads tennis shoes). Opening with the meditative folk of ‘Little Lark’, the songs gently picked melody and soothing vocal bringing a calm, appreciative silence to the room.
‘Monogamy’ with its subtle use of looped guitar and vocal is as lovely as it is crushing. Although Sturgess tells us, it didn’t go down quite as well when he played it at a friend’s wedding anniversary.
Dry humour and anecdotes of awkwardness and heartbreak help create an intimate, playing-in-your- front-room feel. A quietly spellbinding set."

Andy Brown, Soundblab

"Up next was Matthew Sturgess who also performs under the name The Silver Reserve. Matthew had a sweet voice and a quick wit as he treated The Crescent to a set of folksy, Bon Iver-esque acoustic ballads. Matthew’s performance was full of genuineness and his lyrics full of the dark realities of life. Near the end of the set he added a richness to this sound through the use of a loop pedal, layering his vocals as well as his guitar to create an echoing melancholy."

Graeme Smith, York Calling

Thank you to @headingleyheart for having us last night! That was the last chance to catch the full band for a while (unless you are in Hull). Numbers seemed to be hit by this pandemic although we were informed by staff that there had been a grest turnout for an Iranian film playing upstairs so maybe it's just time to get into Iranian filmmaking instead?! Thanks to all those who did come to see us - your support is greatly appreciated.

@alicetrif thanks for the pics!
