Album Notes
Mike Matisa is a singer/songwriter from New Jersey who has played with some of the area’s top talent. Blending a modern contemporary rock edge with the same styles of local legends such as; Bon Jovi, Bruce Springsteen, Skid Row, Glenn Burtnik, and Ernie White, his material can be summed up in one word. QUALITY!! Bringing together a powerful combination of melodic hooks, passionate lyrics, and superb musicianship, Mike's songwriting approach leaves the listener feeling like they have just added songs to their collection that will become instant classics!

With all the influential qualities of the great bands that came out of the 70's and 80's, Mike's music returns the complete package of great songwriting, radio friendly hooks, meaningful lyrics, and top caliber musicianship. Something the listening audience deserves to hear again, while still keeping it current with today's markets.

The CD's second track, "Washed Away" is a powerful soundscape of passionate lyrics, soothing background vocals, beautifully orchestrated keyboards, and sexy guitars. Set in the scene of the famous Jersey Shore, this composition paints the picture of love vanishing as quick as a wave crashes over a sandcastle. Joined by national rising star Lisa Bouchelle in a cameo appearance on lead vocals, this song is as good as it gets in performance and songwriting!

The third track, "Make Me Believe" is the ultimate "got to be with you" pop radio classic that tells the story of friends reuniting and taking that ever so heart pounding chance of a lifetime to become lovers! Just as the anticipation of such a situation builds up and explodes, so does this powerful song, summing up this indescribable feeling!

Wrapping up this collection is track #5, a crushing version of the Styx classic "Crystal Ball". Paying tribute to the master musicians and songwriters of this immortal band, this version showcases four part vocal harmonies, and tasteful musical interpretations of the original, finished off by a blistering guitar solo at the end. A must hear for serious musicians!
