Album Notes
Local Boston guitarist Matthew Joy, an innovative musician and composer, brings forth a refreshing sound, blending different styles of music including jazz, folk, brazilian, blues, rock, and world. His compositions and guitar playing are thoughtful, eclectic, and refined.

Born 1975 just outside Boston Matthew began playing guitar at the age of 13. During high school he began studying with local guitarist Sandy Prager who introduced him to the guitar artistry of Ralph Towner and Egberto Gismonti. It was at this time Matthew became immersed in developing the craft of composing and solo guitar playing with Sandy. This style of guitar playing was intriguing to matt because of the intimacy, and subtleties of playing acoustic nylon and 12-string guitars, coupled with the fact that not many people were doing this.

Matthew began broadening his style studying jazz composition at Berklee College of Music in Boston. Here he was composing for large ensembles, studying varieties of Latin, African, Eurasian, and Asian music, and taking guitar lessons with Jon Damian and Mick Goodrick.

Matthew’s compositions have been performed and recorded by other artist in Boston, New York, And Europe. Matthew has been performing his music and teaching guitar in and around Boston for the past five years. He has recorded two albums, "Pulse" a recording of solo works, and "Omnifarious" where Matthew plays a variety of instruments overdubbed.
