That “regular guy” kind of sentiment comes through the songs that Matt sings. He is just putting to music situations and experiences that we have all had. People enjoy songs about real life, it’s where we all live and work and play. We face situations where we need to say “I’m Sorry” (Today & Tomorrow Album, 2005), and “Everything’s Right” (Twenty Three Places Album, 2003). We have break-ups, and lonely nights. The music is a part of the fabric of our lives.

Choosing the top 10 songs from the albums is a challenge. Each song has it’s own feel and each album has it’s own direction. Never the less, some songs do stand out. They resonate somewhere between heart and soul. Each with it’s own message, you once again find yourself lost in the music. If you have felt the same way as the artist, you drift back to that situation and walk through the lyrics in your mind. If you haven’t experienced the message for yourself, you instinctively put yourself in his shoes. Or perhaps, the song came from the experience of a friend or fan, and together you acknowledge the emotions of someone you don’t even know.
