Album Notes
Introducing the debut singer songwriter release “Simple Man” from Long Island, New York’s Matt Marshak. This album brings together a heartfelt collection of rootsy songs that cross and blur genres lines. Catchy melodies, singable hooks, organic and honest production, and a hopeful and optimistic message are the defining qualities of this new album. There is Americana, pedal steel twang, organic and soulful acoustic guitar, and a bit of rock and R&B too--truly something for everyone! Matt’s unique voice ties it all together with his rare blend of soul, retro country, and sweet melody. His trademark guitar sounds, who jazz/blues fans have known for years, is also front and center on this album.

Matt’s story is not the typical one. After recording jazz/instrumental albums and performing worldwide on some of the biggest jazz festival stages, Matt returns to his roots to put forth a record he’s been hoping to do for quite some time. His earliest influences were songwriters and icons such as James Taylor, Paul Simon, Eric Clapton, and BB King. With his unique and eclectic vocals added to the mix, along with his relatable soul searching messages, he has finally transcended his previous works to bring forth something truly special that he is thrilled to share with the world.

The opening song “Simple Man” is Matt’s testimony to just being yourself. “Tell Me Something Good” is the song we all want to hear in this turbulent time in history. “One in a Million” and “Leave my Worries” are the stories of the artist on their journey. “Thankful to be Your Man” is the celebration of a terrific marriage, and “Prayer for You” offers hope for those who’ve lost their way in the world. Matt says, “these are stories from my life, universal themes on finding your way and place in the world, and from the heart messages of peace and joy I wish for everyone.”

The album has a unique blend of New York and Nashville. Four of the tunes were co-written with Nashville hit songwriter Steve Dean (Reba Mcentire, George Strait, Waylon Jennings, etc). Michael Webb (Brandi Carlisle/Chris Stapleton) also lends his keyboard mastery to the project. Matt’s brother Chris Marshak (Steve Winwood) brings the east coast beat on drums and percussion, and Grammy Award winning mix engineers and producers Ben Wisch (Marc Cohn, Jonatha Brooke) and Billy Hume (Infamous Stringdusters) add the final touches. Much of the music was written and recorded in eastern Long Island, NY.

He brings honest, humble, handcrafted songs. His voice breathes hope and reassurance. His messages are uplifting and universal. He is Matt Marshak!
