Album Notes
Matt Mead writes the kind of music that is meant for a global audience. Described as "Jaunty, Lively, Catchy and Memorable slices of life" Mead's songs are as accessible and eclectic as his influences ranging from pop, rock, folk and world music. Imagine George Harrison and David Gilmore fronting a band with Ryan Adams, James Taylor and Sade making contributions to the material. The comparisons can go on forever. But at the end of the day, Mead's culmination of authenticity and unbridled expression are what inspire reviews that see him "...easily fitting in amongst the greats and legends."

His latest album EMBERS is a shining introduction to an artist whose identifiably unique and undeniably catchy songwriting draws comparison to Rob Thomas, Counting Crows, Don Henley and the Beatles.

A breath of fresh air..
While the first half of Embers bristles with the anticipation of newfound love (Take a Chance), its latter half finds that love crumbling (Leave the Light On), and even calls its very existence into question. From beginning to end, your in for a ride of emotions. The lyrics are beautiful, the music gorgeous. This is one artist you will want to watch, as his star is rising!

Matt Mead is a songwriter's songwriter...
Matt Mead's 'Embers' is a beautiful cd. You can wrap yourself up in these songs at first listen. With well-crafted songs and excellent production, Embers delivers heartwarming, classic sounding tunes, adorned with Mead's soulful singing. Put this one on top of the listening rack.

As a former lead singer for Matt many moons ago during our garage days, I can honestly say that he has evolved into quite a musician. Matt has always been a great song and lyric writer. I had the pleasure of singing many of his songs in the early and mid 90's as we toured the dirt club circuit. I sold out and now only sing in the truck on the way home from work, or in the shower, but it's great to see that he continues his musical dream, and continues to evolve. Great job Matt!! Listening to this album has brought back many great memories.


Keep the fire burning
Fans of artists like Marc Cohn, James Taylor, and Josh Kelley will find much to enjoy when listening to the nine tracks on Embers. Matt Mead has a keen eye for detail and the ability to aptly capture little moments and nuances in his verses. Mead doesn’t quite “rock”; his lyrics and music flow gently, skipping over a rough-textured voice. If the pacing of the album occasionally drags, it can be forgiven due to the quality of the work presented. With tunes ranging from the exuberant romance of “Take a Chance” (“I want to be everything you’d imagine a man like me should be”) to the darker “Feed the Animals” (“You’ve got enough blood to go around for the animals tonight/For a carnivore’s delight”), Mead comes across as seasoned observer of the world.
