What do you get when you put a diverse vocalist with a killer guitarist? Hands? Anyone? You get MF’s Soundscape! Commonly known as Josh Springer and Matt Aronson, the acoustic team that makes up Soundscape has been making fans and climbing the MF charts faster than you can say…well…Soundscape. For months on end Soundscape was number 1 on the most listened charts and while their name has not officially been changed on the site, Josh Springer continues to be high on not only the most listened chart but also the highest rated chart.

So what makes these guys so likeable? It might just be their sense of humor. Having a laugh for everything, you can find more than one gag track in their repertoire of music up on the site page. Or it could be the voice that carries Golden Lady so well during their performance at the Knitting Factory. If all else fails it could be the awesome guitar skills of Sir Matt Aronson who now has his own page for his music at Music Freedom. Could things get any better for the Mfers? It sure could!

Each day they are giving away awesome tracks for buying the ones that they have on the site and are constantly replenishing their storehouse of music. They are constantly promoting themselves as well as the site bringing artists like Twin-A to the MF family. How cool is that! They stay in touch and try to be as much a part of the MF family as possible.

But! This is also about the music isn’t it? I have to say that my personal favorite song of theirs shows itself on my mix. From the minute I heard “Code Red” I was hooked. The feel of the song makes itself an acoustic jewel of theirs. For being a live recording, with just one take to get the song right, the song is really awesome.

Creating music is a close to heart thing no matter who you are, and for these guys to share their fabulous music with the MF community literally as soon as a new track is mastered is a cool treat. Taking the time to get to know each and every person that has subscribed and writing out as many emails and PMs as they can is a hard job that not even the best of artists can do on their own but Soundscape manages to handle the load and constantly try their best to help others.

Their freedom to create the music that they want and thee creativity that they push wrapped up in a sense of humor that is unparalleled in MANY artists. Watch out for Soundscape as artists on the rise! - Altoid_Rocker (MusicFreedom.com)

If you think you’ve heard it all, take a better listen: you haven’t heard anything like Soundscape Soul, the freshest acoustic duo to hit the New York City music scene. The magical chemistry of Josh Springer and Matt Aronson, the acoustic duo that makes up Soundscape Soul, is a wonderfully refreshing sound from two wonderful individuals.

When Aronson and Springer met and started playing together at the summer camp they worked at, it was hard to deny the blend of Springer’s smooth voice and the cool jazz sound of Aronson’s guitar. Recognizing the power of the digital music world, Springer and Aronson started recording their music through the internet, and in March 2006, Within State Lines, their debut album, was born.

Springer and Aronson create a masterpiece in Lines, filled with a mixture of earthy tones and harmonies, created by two voices and a guitar. That’s it. To Aronson and Springer, extra sounds usually added in a studio would hide the personality that comes out in each song. “We share our music to share it, and really get people involved in it. We want people to see, feel, and hear that we love out music,” Springer says.

It would be hard not to feel the wave of relaxation that washes over you with songs like “Try” and “Her Song.” A fan favorite, “Code Red,” showcases the perfection of Springer and Aronson’s collaboration, with Aronson’s melodies setting the mood for their vocal harmony. In songs like “In My World,” a song about the imprint a past love leaves on a heart. The lyrics read: “You told me I would never be alone in this world/I would always have someone to call in this world/I don’t know where I would be without those kind, kind words/They will always be with me in my world.” Springer’s lyrics are mature, yes – but what he aims for is “someone to be able to listen to our music and say, ‘You know, I really understand what they’re saying.’” Mission accomplished. Soundscape Soul is proud to be part of the internet music revolution, as Within State Lines is conveniently being sold through iTunes Music Store.

Accepting fans into the Soundscape world doesn’t stop at the lyrics. Live shows are where you will really see the magic of Springer and Aronson’s solidarity come to life. Making their live debut in New York City in October 2005, the band has played at The Knitting Factory, The Triad Theater, The Cutting Room and Kenny’s Castaways. The boys require audience interaction, and add their fans into the fun they’re having on stage – something that even the greatest musicians of our time can’t conquer. In the future, do yourself a favor and have an intimate night with music and laughter, hosted by Soundscape Soul.

Springer and Aronson take pride in the fact that their music, promotion, and growing fan base is all a product of their hard work. Constantly promoting themselves is a key factor in their success. Getting to know their fans, one by one, is a reflection of their down-to-earth personalities. To keep the fans guessing, Springer and Aronson are always adding new tracks, such as “Flightless Wings,” on their website and Myspace page. If you want to get to know the boys, just log on to their website – they crave contact with their very loyal fan base.

What’s next for the duo? They’re content with doing what they do best. Says Springer, “Sure, the ultimate would be to greater venues, bigger crowds, mass media, fame and fortune. But what’s all that without being sincere and really enjoying what you do?” Good question.
