ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
\"While Jennings has a perpetual case of wanderlust, he’s trained his professional sights on a solid music career. This is a very good thing if you dig stripped-down acoustics and straightforward melodies delivered with bilingual passion. Spanish guitar adds a saucy edge to his humorous, Jimmy Buffet narratives and Jack Johnson campfire appeal.\"
Jamie Gadette, Salt Lake City Weekly, 10/11/2007


\"...his guitar skills are flawless. There\'s a distict world music feel, inspired by his international travels. The gypsy rhythms and folksy vibe lend to hip-shaking, head-bobbing beats.\"
Megan Wiley, Mpls.St.Paul Magazine, Dec. 2005


\"...Matt Jennings is an outstanding guitar player. He has vast instrumental chops that usually mean extreme overplaying. In his case it\'s just isn\'t so. Every part he plays fits perfectly into the context of his laid back songs. The playing on the album sounds like a well-rehearsed band, which makes it all the more thrilling to see he played all instruments on the album except upright bass, which was handled by Chris Morrissey.

Songs such as When Two Become One and Two Faces highlight the album with straight ahead lyrics that you can relate to. Globetrekker is a story about someone who can\'t be tied down because they\'re constantly on the move, which seems to be the story of Jennings after reading his bio about his time living in China where he taught English and expanded his musical and cultural palate...\"
Nick Leet, Rift Magazine, www.riftmagazine.com


\"Jennings’ guitar playing is a fusion of several different styles and cultures. The percussive strumming of opener, The Tortoise and the Hare, alludes to images of two combating lovers as his tango cadence intertwines with long stretches of flamenco style guitar interludes. More of this Spanish and other worldly influences take precedent on the title track, When Two Become One, as Jennings dances his fingers across the seemingly endless neck of guitar. Lyrically, all nine tracks seem to be slowly drawn out testaments to various female contemporaries. Two exceptions are the restless for more adventure, Globetrekker, and the life path questioning, The Outer Limits. It’s an eclectic mesh of his international guitar capacity and is well worth a listen.\" Carl Carpenter, The Wake, www.wakemag.org

Matt Jennings is AWESOME on a Guitar
Matt Jennings does not have to sing (although he does that very well) he makes the guitar sing for him.

sweet!
In all honesty, this is a solid debut from someone who, like it or not, lives in the shadow of an older sibling. I exprect nothing but success for Matt from here on. His guitar playing is superb, vocals and lyrics are average. Definately worth checking out and supporting another budding artist from music hotbed, Minneapolis.
