Beautiful, Calming, Uplifting and Dreamy.
This CD will provide you with an oasis of serenity. Enjoy peaceful melodies and compelling beats. A must have for anyone needing a relaxing fix in these troubled times. A true balm for this aching heart.


Lookout world!!
Here comes Matt Shell........a most talented writer/composer/musician/percussionist.

His creativity emerges from his willingness to experiment and explore and be flexible, and for the love he obviously puts into his work.

"Heavens Above" and "Again" are my favorites on this album but the whole album holds something special for everyone.

How can you go wrong buying this album, when a portion goes to a charitable cause??

Steve Clark of Skull Beams

A very creative and unique blend of sounds.
First heard one of Matt's tunes early in 2004. I listen to alot of music in all styles. On the radio from one end of the dial to another, live, and on the net. I'm constantly on the lookout for something really new. If your looking for something unique - something original and creative while also making beautiful music, then here it is. Enjoy!

Ian Evans

Gradually unfolding melodies and beats
This is an instrumental album, based around shifting electronic beats and guitar. It's a slow burner, and the tunes gradually unfold with repeated listens. There are surprisingly unusual chord changes and rhythms, which repay your attention.

Matt Shell is a multi-instrumentalist and the tunes are augmented or based around some very skillful nylon strung guitar. On tunes like, 'My Angel,' the guitar is quite medieval in feel. 'Alone' has a Latin feel, but dances in and out of surprising stacatto sections. On some tracks, the beats are left bare, so you're forced to pay attention to the changing drums. It's very mellow and stripped down to the essentials, but with a lot of hidden gems.


Rhythmic, tantric, sonic, sparse, full, faraway, fun
Rhythmic, tantric, sonic, sparse, full, faraway, fun

That should about do it right? Matt Shell brings a wealth of percussion and musical knowledge to create sparse yet involving landscapes at every turn. My only gripe? Each song is clipped at 2:00. Some incentive to buy the CD I guess!

Hey, who is this guy Matt Shell?
Hey, who is this guy Matt Shell? -

One of the most prodigious young talents I have had the pleasure to encounter on This guy has Spirit & a remarkable God-given gift for composition in unusual time signatures...Such an ambitious work is beyond the ken of most musicians! There are many fine tracks, judge for yourself! Don't be put off if you don't "Get it" in the first 16 bars...Give Matt a chance to develop the composition & you won't be disappointed! -

Matt's sensitive playing underlines the huge potential of this young artist...I can guarantee plenty of aural pleasure (especially "Again"), so join Matt's fan club NOW! Before he becomes too big to remember all his fans...Seriously grab a copy "Rhythmic Journey" before there are none left again! -


Soundfreak/Emil Anderberg

This is a Great listen!!
Matt is making Cool music with alot of cool rythms and awesome guitar play. This is defantly a good listen!!!

peace Soundfreak


Groovy rhythms abound
There's no shortage of groove on this CD. Funky rhytyms, great atmospheric/ambient feel. Total sound track/ambient track material!


Excellent, the entire cd is packed with beautiful innovated music
I listened to a small clip on the website and liked what I heard. After receiving the CD I was overwhelmed. Excellent, exciting music. Matt Shell has a way with his music that is unlike anything else I have every heard. If you love music, not the popular top 10, but actual music.... You will enjoy this CD. Thank you for making my day a bit brighter.


Artistically stunning
With twisting time signatures and arrangements, Matt's really taking us on a journey of melodic elements meeting modern composition in his music. Electronic meets organic, modern meets traditional sensibility, this is a disc that's really a cut above. Seriously, I can't praise what I've heard enough. HIGHLY recommended for anyone that feels popular music's gotten stagnant. 5 stars, folks, and a class act of work here. Great job!
