Debut LP - "Closer To More"

Singles - "You Lose My Mind"



Matty McRee is out to redefine the term singer-songwriter. Armed with an arresting gravelly voice and a guitar, Matty doesn’t look or sound the part of what the term singer-songwriter has come to entail. And that’s okay with him. “I’m one of those totally self-absorbed writers – my songs are raw emotion,” says Matty. “Happiness, anger, sadness, hopefulness…If I’m doing it right, all those emotions should reveal themselves in the music.” Hailing from Greenville, South Carolina and now living in Nashville, Matty has wrapped his music in the traditions of southern rock n’ roll and infused it with strains of country music borrowed from his adopted hometown. When entwined with his clever, fresh approach to songwriting, the result is a an incisive and powerful rock experience, evident throughout his debut CD, Closer to More (Spin Red Productions, produced by Jim Cristaldi, engineered by J. Franze). From the darkness of “115” to the emboldened “Someday,” the lover’s tale “Stars” and the loss of naiveté of the title track, Closer to More is a smart, anthemic story of a man on a mission to discover himself and make a few friends along the way. Accompanied by brothers Mike and Matt Payne (All-Star United, Matthew West)on lead guitar and drums respectively, John Murray on bass, and Matt Gilder (Chris Tomlin) on keyboards, Matty breaks the boundaries in which singer-songwriters have been confined by standing the definition on its head.
