American singer-songwriter Matthew Houck, better known as Phosphorescent, performed new songs at 9:30 Club recently, touring his latest album, C’est La Vie, which was released in October via Dead Oceans. Ben Eisendrath nabbed some photos of the show!
Following up his 2013 record Muchacho, Phosphorescent’s new album chronicles a five-year period where his life changed dramatically. He fell in love, started a family, and relocated from New York to Nashville, where hand built his own studio from the ground up.
