ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
We are all searching for something.

For Matt Shwachman, it is a search for melody, for motion, and for fulfillment of the mind. This search has forged by an acoustic guitar driven-blend of pop/rock which Skope Magazine states, "would impress fans of artists such as John Mayer, Tom Petty and Jason Mraz."

Although his artistic vision and style took years to take shape, Matt would taste success with his very first finished song. Although written years earlier, "Side of the Road" made its impact when it earned a spot on the hit TV series, One Tree Hill. Matt's latest song to hit TV, the emo driven ballad "Wait for Me (Hold On)", recently touched listeners across the country when it closed out the final scene of the season of MTV’s Real World Cancun.

Matt's new album, entitled Uncharted Territory, "is a journey about the process, not the end result," Matt says. "We are all ever-evolving, changing and growing people. It is this growth process that brings fulfillment, and in order to attain any sense of it, it must be earned." Matt has seen his music do well at college radio, with spins on over 200 stations. So much so, CMJ recently stated, "Acoustic-wielding, Boston-Based singer songwriter Matt Shwachman will be giving established heart-melters like One Republic and Five For Fighting a run for their money."

Matt has been earning his keep by hitting the pavement hard with his new band, cleverly titled the Matt Shwachman Band (MSB). MSB features Hugh Allen on bass, Mike Fiore on lead guitar and Dana Bonardi on percussion. MSB prides itself on being a very hard working band, and they have been keeping an active calendar to prove it. In a little over a year's time, they have already played well over a hundred shows, which include arenas, headlining festivals, playing colleges, universities, and schools, television shows, in addition to the top club venues in the North East.

MSB has shared the stage with Eve 6, Keith Kane of Vertical Horizon, and Jeffrey Gaines, amoung others. In addition to their busy calendar, MSB is currently in the recording studio working on their new CD, tentatively titled Are You Prepared, due out in early 2010.

To me, this album is a perfect "rainy-day" record. Whether you're driving and the drops splash your windshield or you're in your living room peering out the window watching the grass soak up the liquid heavenly nectar, 'Uncharted Territory' reminds you of something bigger...of brighter days ahead. It's soft and melodic, and painful, but inspirational. I suggest the next time you're feeling contemplative or you're searching for your respective "something", embrace the clouds rolling in, brew up a cup of coffee, throw on your favorite pair of slippers, and flip the play button on this disc, you'll be the better for it.

sounds that soothe my soul
As mentioned in another review, the music that pours forth from my speakers as I listen to this cd are soft and melodic. The sounds conjure up images of days gone by - when times were easier and life was carefree. Matthew's voice pulls and tears at the strings of my heart, at times.... and at times, it lifts my spirits to soaring heights. The quality of the recording and mastering of Matthew's music makes you feel like you're sitting right there with him, in his livingroom with your eyes closed and a smile on your face. Some people say chicken soup is a cure for the heart - I say "Unchartered Territory" is the real cure.

Some serious hits here!
Matt's second record is fantastic! I listened to it several times on the way to Maine and back and found it extremely warm and gracious. The song "Destiny" is my favorite of all the quality tracks. I find myself singing it while I play my own guitar! Great CD, great production and great package!

Jamie Clayton

Real life with great rhythm!! LOVE IT!!

Cooper

Wonderful Disc! It has a John Mayer sound to it.
The disc is Great. It has a John Mayer / Dave Mathews sound... you can listen to the CD straight through but I recomend track 5 as my personal favorite.

Melissa Reichner
