Album Notes
Thanks for visiting my CD Baby page for my brand new CD "The Fun Side Of Life." This is my fourth release on my own record label, Open Road Records. This CD features 14 brand new, original songs in the "Fun-Loving, Sunny-Day, Acoustic" genre. That's my genre; I made it up! I use my music to motivate and inspire, to help people live on what I call "The Fun Side of Life," and most importantly to help people smile, laugh and enjoy themselves. So welcome to "The Fun Side Of Life." -Matt

The "Fun Side of Life" may sound like a fantasy but I don't think it has to be. It's a place where we look at life as an adventure, laugh loud and often, love each other, chase after our dreams, do what we love and use our gifts and talents to make the world a better place. I use these songs to remind me that this way of life is a possibility and I hope others might join me on "The Fun Side Of Life."

Song Inspirations and Descriptions:

Lighten Up! It's a good battle cry and a way to help out those people who seem to be in a perpetual bad mood. And should you find anything on this CD offensive, I will refer you to the title of this song: Lighten Up!

The Answer is Faith: I'm a control freak by nature and I often need to remind myself that the world is not in my control and that things don't often go the way I think they should.

A Fun Song About Good Stuff: I really like the idea of using music to celebrate life. I think we try sometimes to make music so hip, trendy, tough, or sexy. Why not fun?

Another Place, Another Time: When I met my wife, Cynthia, she told me she just wanted to be friends. I'm happy that I managed to wear her down. I guess it could be about any time two people meet, feel a connection, but for some reason can't do anything about it.

I Never Took The Time: My Grandma Kathryn passed away on March 1, 2005. When
I found out, my first thought was that I wish I had spent more time with her. I thought a lot that day about the loved ones in my life and how easy it is for trivial things to get in the way of spending precious time with those we love. I don't want this to be a depressing song. I am hoping others might use it like I do, to help me realize that we need to make the most of the time we have.

It's About Love: A friend called me and asked if I would write a song for a talk she was giving on acceptance. I said yes and then put it off as long as possible. When I finally sat down to write it, this whole song popped into my head like it was handed to me. Thanks Jean for the challenge and the opportunity.

A Brilliant Song: I was tempted to call this "The World's Greatest Folk Song." Due to the linguistic creativity of this particular piece, I am guaranteed a place in history as one of the greatest songwriters ever!

Hold My Beer...Watch This! Is based on the most common five last words heard here in Wisconsin. No actual snakes were harmed during the recording of this song, just a couple of musicians and those are actual cans of Leinie's Original!

Rock N' Roll Star: Sorry about this one. I'm just living out a fantasy I've had since I got my first guitar.

The "I Can't Play One Single Blues Song" Blues: I never know what I am going to find out there on the road. One night a place actually billed me as a blues act! It made me want to sing the blues...about not being able to sing the blues!

It's Finally Summer: is about that magical day here in Wisconsin when we know the snow and the cold are gone for a little while and we can enjoy all the wonders of a Wisconsin Summer.

I Can't Wait: I was stuck in a hotel on a snowy day in Ironwood, MI. I was longing for home and warm weather.

A Place I Know: There must be some kind of perfect balance between seeing as much of the world as possible and also spending some quiet time at home.

The Fun Side Of Life: A great place to be! It came to me after seeing Jimmy
Buffett at Alpine Valley (again!) I was, as I always am, impressed and inspired by the Parrotheads and how on that day, we all come together to have a great time. The Fun Side of Life is my attempt to live with that attitude every day.

I hope you enjoyed your time on "The Fun Side of Life." Come find me at a show or read more at

Have a wonderful day!
