I am posting a song today by an artist that I am very fond of. Matt Hires is a singer-songwriter from Florida who began writing music in his late teens and released his first album at age 22. Now, at the ripe old age of 28, he is still creating great music with a sound all his own, and he released a new independent album just yesterday.
I find his music enjoyable to listen to and very soothing. He has such an authentic voice and the lyrics to his songs are incredibly sincere and honest, something that I just find refreshing.
I am a big fan of his first two full length albums (Take Us to the Start 2008 and This World Won’t Last Forever, But Tonight We Can Pretend 2013), so I was very excited when he announced that he was working on new songs and a new album. His new four-track album, Heartache Machine, was just released yesterday and earlier today it had already reached #16 on the iTunes Singer/Songwriter chart. He is currently on tour and will be here in NYC later this month. Hooray! He is also joining another favorite of mine – Parachute – on tour this summer. I will definitely be watching for those dates!
I love the new album and hope that you will enjoy it too. If you find that you like it, please share it with someone else. I get a kick out of introducing great music to those who might not have otherwise heard it, and I love spreading the news about awesome music and talented artists. Matt Hires, and this new album, is definitely one that should be shared.
Check out my absolute favorite song by Matt Hires – “Honey, Let Me Sing You A Song.” In fact, maybe it should be the Throw Back Thursday song tomorrow. 😉
