Album Notes
Praised for his “Brilliant, nigh-on, angsty vocals,” Montreal-born, New York City-based recording artist Matt Shapiro has 4 albums and multiple collaborations to his name. His songs have been featured in TV shows around the world including Melrose Place, The Young and The Restless, Web Dreams, Charlie Jade, and the Gemini-award winning 15 Love.

His new EP FADE IN will be released on March 8, 2019.

The road to making FADE IN began in the summer of 2017 when Matt convened with his band in a Brooklyn rehearsal space to run through new material. It was a non-starter. “The magic just wasn’t there. I realized that it was time to reinvent. ” His next call was to frequent collaborator Fraser McCulloch, producer (and member) of critically-acclaimed indie band Milagres whose resumé also includes helming albums for Chaos Chaos, Golden Suits, and Sunjacket.

“I sent Fraser every demo I’d recorded all year.” The duo eventually settled on 7 songs – 6 of which made the final EP- and scheduled a series of sessions starting in mid-September. One major constraint was McCulloch’s imminent move cross-country to California. “Time was of the essence, so I was meticulous in planning our sessions. I had this list of 6 guiding principles that we taped to the side of a studio monitor. We’d check it constantly as we were working to keep us on track.” He credits McCulloch with helping him to clarify his vision for the record- and for holding his feet to the fire. “Fraser is the ideal producer for me in that he’s both my biggest fan and toughest critic. It’s easy for me to fool myself into thinking something’s better or worse than it is. Having a sounding board -whose taste I totally trust - is absolutely crucial ”

When asked why he chose the title FADE IN Shapiro explains, “In many ways, the last record was about tying up loose ends. This one really feels like the start of something new. “
