"Dave Matel"

Dave Matel has been playing music since he was four at the Cleveland Institute of Music. And the training has done wonders for him as he shows hints of greatness on his debut EP “Woman.” On the opener “Bloody December,” Matel shows incredible promise as he invokes three legends: The voice of an early Bruce Springsteen, the extremely complex and intricate music of Christian legend Rich Mullins and the political lyrics of a young Bob Dylan. This six-song debut EP shows the promise that Matel has. He did everything with this album, from singing and writing all the songs, to playing all the instruments, to producing and recording the entire thing. There is no doubt that Matel has talent. He shows hints of greatness throughout “Woman.”

"A Womans Point of View"

I wanted to leave a review from a woman's point of view. I believe that when Dave Matel's music hits the airwaves it will sweep the women off their feet. With a soft and powerful voice Matel is able to make a woman see through his eyes. He has the ability to make you forget what is going on in your life right now and allows you to close your eyes and be swept away from your daily cares. You may find yourself feeling like he is singing straight to you. You can will find songs that remind you of yourself and ones that just make you want to sway back and forth in your seat. So I encourage you to check this out for yourself and send it on to all your friends, this IS the music to share.

Feeling a bit camera shy


Where do I begin? Piano has been a part of my life since I was 4. I remember listening to the Beatles as a young child being captivated by their sound, it definitely made a life long impact on me and my music. I think I've gone thru every stage a writer can go through, from discovery to the angry period, to now where I'm finally feeling balanced.
As of now I do everything myself from writing to producing, and I would have to describe my music as Fresh and Familiar. I care about melodies and my words reaching people and making them feel something, whether good or bad. I don't know what tomorrow will bring but I do know as long as I can still create and grow as an artist I'm ready for any challenge that comes my way.
