Album Notes
In his sixth full length album, independent artist Matthew Alexander offers his
most accomplished work yet – Three Minute Movie – 14 songs that cover a broad
scope of the human experience including themes such as betrayal, redemption,
grief and love.

Raised in Manhattan by his classical composer father and poet mother, Alexander
took lessons in acoustic style guitar from the late Artie Traum and Jack Baker. He
was discovered at age 16 by Tin Pan Alley songwriter Lou Stallman who published
his first twelve compositions. Alexander’s songs have drawn comparisons to such
acoustic pop artists as Jim Croce and Paul Simon. He is known for his unique
finger picking style, expressive voice and powerful melodic sensibility.

Produced by Michael McGinnis, Three Minute Movie displays an array of acoustic and electric instruments that are tailored to
the emotional heartbeat of each song. The title track bristles with country rock energy. Other songs, such as “Rainy Afternoon”
and “Indigo and I”, show a more laid-back jazz-folk style. Two folk-oriented tracks – “Racing Against Time” and “If You Didn’t
Know Me” – tackle profound themes of aging and caring for a mother with Alzheimer’s Disease while two instrumentals –
“Tagalong” and “Citizen Train” – showcase Alexander’s mastery of Travis picking.

Also included on the disc are two covers – “Beyond the Sea” and “Ramblin’ Rose” – which demonstrate Alexander’s talent for bringing a fresh approach to classic songs. Matthew Alexander will be touring throughout the Southeast in the fall of 2015 to promote this record.. His music can be heard on Pandora at Matthew Alexander Radio. Freddy Cellis of Rootstime said of this CD, "striking attention to the melody and lyrics of each song....his guitar playing is reminiscent of Mark Knopler's latest work...amazing and delicious."
