Featured Release This Week From Phosphorescent + Tracks Top 30 Playlist

Nov 19, 2018

Matthew Houck was born in Alabama, began performing as Phosphorescent in Athens, Georgia in 2001, and then later became a Brooklyn, NY-based artist.  His latest Phosphorescent project is titled C'est La Vie, recorded in his new hometown of Nashville, at a studio he built himself.  In the five years since the previous Phosphorescent album, Houck has also faced meningitis and became a father twice.  Considering that he named the new album C'est La Vie ("That's life"), it's no surprise that Houck is philosophical about it all.  As he says via his record company:  "These significant moments in life can really make you feel your insignificance.  It's a paradox, I guess, that these wildly profound events simultaneously highlight that maybe none of this matters at all."
