Album Notes
"Startlingly original and brilliantly realized...At once cerebral, spiritual and earthy, Lying In Chalk is a triumphant, front-to-back gem."
Jim Musser
Iowa City Press-Citizen

"Real genius lies in {Matt's} handling of the English language. "
- Brian Klein, Moremusic! Magazine

"Matt Bar, aka the Ramblin' MC... His genre is folk rap which, believe it or not, is a wonderful generational cross-over, at least as done (invented?) by Matt ..what he's saying in his songs is a lot healthier and holier, to say nothing of more intelligent than what most popular music says these days"
Dorothy Whiston, Preaching Peace

Seamlessly blended to create a musical treat
Like peanut butter and chocolate, Matt Bar blends two seemingly contrary musical genres -- folk and rap -- to create songs that touch the heart and start the feet a-tapping.
I would only hope that songs like Universal Citizen act as a catalyst to an activist movement to bring back the idea that "Money is just money, things are things."
We would all be a lot better off if we would just "invest a little more in human beings."


You are a genius.
You are a genius. This will be recognized soon enough. Work hard at getting out there. Work harder after each success. Work hard in the face of adversity. I can't express how amazing your music and your words are, and I teach poetry. Good luck to you.
