"Powered by superstar legends, Steve Kimock and others from The Tubes, Bruce Hornsby, The Who, Rod Stewart, Starship and more, this powerhouse masterpiece of Americana rock slow-cooks a blend of "Van Morrison meets John Mellencamp" in a tastebud-tantalizing, equally sweet and salty feast. Stir up your best memories of the 80''s and 90''s with this fresh sound rooted in some of Americana''s leading trailblazers." Derek Sivers - CDBaby
Matt is a singer songwriter guitarist originally from Chicago where he sat in with many blues greats as a teenager. He was a member of various Chicago area rock and roll bands in the 1970s and 1980s. Actively employed in the business world since the early 80s, he has continued to write over the years and recently rekindled his musical passions with this CD.
G.E. Smith of Hall & Oates and Saturday Night Live fame once described Matt''s songs as "having more hooks than a tackle box." Hailing from an era when everyone read the lyric sheets in albums and were emotionally moved by them, Matt writes in a style similar to that era and current writers like Linda Perry (Pink, Christina Aguilera).
This CD was recorded at Priarie Sun Recording Studios in Sonoma County, California on classic analog equipment once owned by Pete Townsend of The Who (ala Quadrophenia) and The Police (Synchronicity).
