We open the third door of our Essential Advent Calendar and Matthew Shepherd is behind it with his beautiful cover of, ‘Fairytale Of New York’.


Matthew Shepherd is a singer songwriter from Essex who has been hailed as one of the most exciting newcomers to the Acoustic music scene. 21 year old Matthew has been delighting audiences in London, Essex, and beyond, with his catalogue of self-penned songs.

His cover of ‘Fairytale of New York’ is stripped back and pure, re-imagined as a beautiful acoustic guitar piece.

About the author

There’s a lot of music out there - good music. At Essentially Pop our remit is that we cover music that deserves to be heard, with a particular focus on independent artists. That doesn't mean we won't cover your old favourites - rather we hope to give you some new favourites as well.

We no longer accept unpaid PR agency work. We believe the creative arts have value, and this includes writing. As always, we will write about artists who contact us - or who we contact - for free - but we can no longer work free of charge for PR agencies. We work hard, we put in a lot of hours writing, and we ask that you respect that. Contact us for our very reasonable rates.
