Streamline is singer-songwriter Matt Heller's first solo CD. The eleven songs on Streamline are stories of defiance - narratives of characters that refuse to bend, break, submit or relent despite their circumstances. The parents of the dead soldier in The Dover Test, the estranged wanderer of Cochise County, the stranded couple at the edge of the world in Mexican Wedding, the emotional leper in Jubilee, the desperate loner in the title track - all are steeped in a refusal to give in to tattered hearts, broken dreams, corrupt institutions, and the oppression of empire.
Streamline was mixed and mastered by Fen Ikner and features guitarist Andrew Reissiger and bassist Henry Kyburg, with contributions from Yank Clewell, John Christian, and Jennifer Choi.
Matt also plays with the band Sloatbucket.
