Latest Press
"Since I was 4 or 5 years old, starting on keys and then went to drums guitar and bass once I hit middle school/high school. Music gives me the opportunity to express myself and create, as well as reach people and make them happy through the songs and the performing. I really like having fun and creating with friends and other players and songwriters too, and am surrounded by lots of them constantly."
Matt Wade, singer and song-writer, performs during this week's episode of The 66 Sessions at the Asbury Park Press. Matt stopped by our studio to play a couple of songs and talk a bit about his new studio.
"Hard To Get By", Hurricane Sandy/The Story of Recovery Video by Deanna Aliano/Music by Matt Wade.
Getting off to a rousing start with the incredibly catchy and jaunty "Love Isn't Everything," this pop-rock album bops and bounces along with a certain tuneful gaiety that's both exciting and engaging in equal measure. Matt Wade's exuberant vocals soar straight for the heavens and back with positively infectious go-for-broke aplomb. The classy and snappy arrangements likewise hit the stirring spot, with big ringing guitar riffs, smooth basslines, dynamic piano, and sturdy kickin' drums keeping things lively and harmonic throughout. Bonus props are in order for the smart and reflective songwriting that deftly mines a touching line in bittersweet regret. A very nice and satisfying album.
"Putting forth incredible energy on stage, backed by a talented band and horn section, Matt Wade stole the night."
