Album Notes
Matty McRee is out to redefine the term singer-songwriter. Armed with an arresting gravelly voice and a guitar, Matty doesn’t look or sound the part of what the term singer-songwriter has come to entail. And that’s okay with him.

“I’m one of those totally self-absorbed writers – my songs are raw emotion,” says Matty. “Happiness, anger, sadness, hopefulness…If I’m doing it right, all those emotions should reveal themselves in the music. I hope my happiness rocks people’s faces off, but I hope my sadness makes them want to cry.”

Hailing from Greenville, South Carolina and now living in Nashville, Matty has wrapped his music in the traditions of southern rock n’ roll and infused it with strains of country music borrowed from his adopted hometown. When entwined with his clever, fresh approach to songwriting, the result is a an incisive and powerful rock experience, evident throughout his debut CD, Closer to More (Spin Red Productions, produced by Jim Cristaldi, engineered by J. Franze).

From the darkness of “115” to the emboldened “Someday,” the lover’s tale “Stars” and the loss of naiveté of the title track, Closer to More is a smart, anthemic story of a man on a mission to discover himself and make a few friends along the way. Accompanied by brothers Mike and Matt Payne (All-Star United, Matthew West)on lead guitar and drums respectively, John Murray on bass, and Matt Gilder (Chris Tomlin) on keyboards, Matty breaks the boundaries in which singer-songwriters have been confined by standing the definition on its head.

You can tell that the music from this CD is from the heart. Matty has a great voice and makes you feel like your there listening in person; like he's singing to you. The song choices and the way they are laid out on the CD are great! Keep up the great work! Can't wait to hear more from Matty and the band.

Matt's voice is a memorable one and he should be known as a fine performer and musician, wherever he sings.


It is difficult to put a price tag on the value of the lyrics included on this CD. His words will capture the very first breath of his listeners.


Best blend of lyrics and music i've heard, this cd hasn't left my stereo yet!
This cd is amazing. Because what sets Matty McRee apart from other artists is his utter honesty about his own experiences, and his eagerness to share it in his songs. If he doesn't make it in the music business, there is no justice.
