Crys Matthews, already being hailed as “the next Woody Guthrie,” DC resident Crys Matthews is among the brightest stars of the new generation of social justice music-makers. Crys Matthews is made for these times, and, with the release of her new, hope-fueled, love-filled social justice album, Changemakers, Matthews hopes to take her place alongside some of her heroes in the world of social-justice music like Sweet Honey in the Rock and Holly Near.
