ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Singing since he could talk, although in private for several years, Matt Morrow began playing music at the age of 16 when he got his first guitar. No one realized the true depths of his talents until his final year of high school when he made the decision to stop hiding his voice and pursue music as his career path.

Born on a ranch home in Guntersville, Alabama, as a child Matt would build up his voice when he was home alone by singing old standards from his grandparents' record collection. It wasn't until he listened to "A Case of You" by Joni Mitchell that his musical tastes took a rapid swerve. He received his first guitar as a Christmas gift, and along with a piano received a year later, began developing his own musical style - a blend of folk and rock that sounded like what Matt now describes as "the strange love child of a Nebraska-era Bruce Springsteen and Tori Amos." He began booking gigs in his hometown area performing acoustic covers and captivating the unsuspecting crowds with his earthy-but-not-earthbound, alarmingly expressive voice.

It was throughout the months during and after the slow breakdown of a long-term relationship that Matt discovered his own songwriting abilities. He spent a year's worth of late nights crafting the melancholy epics that would become his first album, Songs About Real Live Girls. The songs touched on a one-night fling in New York City and a budding relationship with an ultimately unavailable lover. One song even exorcised personal demons from Matt's father, who died several years earlier when Matt was only twelve. For the most part, however, the songs came from a deeply wounded, though not entirely broken heart at the end of a long emotional journey.

Recorded in one night and using only a guitar and a piano, Songs About Real Live Girls is nonetheless a surprisingly textured soundscape. Anything but trite or banal, the lyrics are sharp, clever, and direct and the melodies are memorable without sounding forced or intentionally "hooky." Matt's powerful but heartbreaking voice enhances, but never threatens to steal the attention from his truthful and sometimes painful musings on love and loss.

Beautiful boy with wonderful words
Matt's voice is really juicy and immediately pulls you in. The sensitivity with which he plays, sings and writes makes the songs on this cd captivating and enjoyable. There's a lot of sad emotion in his voice and his words are easily understood, but never boring, because he tells the truth and doesn't try to get too fancy. Go Matty go. :)

This guy is going places!
I'll admit, I've known Matt for several years and it's so amazing how accomplished he's become in a relatively short amount of time. "Songs About Real Live Girls" is the first of what I hope to be many amazing glimpse's into an intricate human soul that has nowhere to go but up from here. Recently I was at an open mic where he played some of the songs off his album and I was almost too taken up in his music to notice the table next to me singing along with him. The person at this table sitting closest to me nudged my arm and said, "This guy is awesome...gets me right here" (and thumped his chest a couple of times, as guys do). I just smiled and nodded...

Stops you in your tracks
I had just gotten home from the grocery store and picked up the mail when Matt's CD came. I put it in while I was putting away my food and I had to stop and sit down in front of the stereo. There was a line about half way through the first track that just snagged my heart and I had to start the song over again and REALLY listen. His writing style conjures up emotions and memories that you don't realize you're still holding onto. The CD has a very consistant mood and is really a fine piece of work. And his voice is just yummy so even if you don't usually pay attention to lyrics it's great!

Listening to Songs About Real Live girls renews my faith in the artists of my generation. Matt's lyrics are not only inspiring but they will jolt your soul into another world: a world where the truth hurts, but where the pain can be shared and understood. His voice will haunt you, his lyrics will enrapture you, and his music will dance with your soul.
