From my early days I have been a sucker for sigh inducing singer song writers, perhaps to a fault, romanticizing every lyrically driven chorus and chord. Accordingly, I was taken by first line of Matt Corby’s dreamy, old soul voice and first listen of Resolution: I conjured up an image of a struggling artist pouring his heart out in half empty cafes and busy street corners, living in a basement somewhere. To my chagrin on first Google I found out that Matt is a 22 year old Australian Idol alum/heart throb with several successful EPs under his belt, although did write Resolution in a “little dingy LA apartment” he had been renting. As with people, you don’t always choose what music you love… so enjoy. #indie/tory

The sound has changed over time. In the past, the had a much more jammier element whereas nowadays they seem to be focusing on a much more structured sound almost like Mansions On The Moon, who coincidentally has similar roots. Check it out for yourself and go grab the free download.

A very quick indie hello as Tom and I gear up to head into the mountains for the 23rd Annual High Sierra Music Festival up in Quincy this afternoon for four days of hot sun, cold beers, music, revelry, friendship and barefoot dancing babies.
