The best kept secret in music


"CD Baby"

I love [this] CD ... [it] is one of the best I have ever heard. 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

Feeling a bit camera shy


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).

Matt's 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).
