Steve Pearman

Mat is one of the best guitarists I've ever heard.
Where do I begin. The tracks are all excelent. The arrangements are great. The mixing is smooth and seemless. Mat's guitar work is flawless and seems to flow right from his heart through his fingers. "When I Fall In Love" with the guitar alone is the best arrangement I have ever heard of this song. I can't get out off my mind and I don't want to.
