Anyone heard of Mat Kearney? This guy is money. Great lyrics and great voice. Check out the album "Bullet"
Here's someone elses review I found on Amazon that I thought was a good write up:
"Even with "Bullet" being his freshman work, Mat's music has already established itself as timeless. Yes, Mat Kearney has a great mind for melodies & he has the tight rhythm lines. But in order to make timeless music, it takes much more than that. The problem with most popular music is the lack of depth; the hook is what most people care about. When that tires, they just move on to the next hit. The average person is just used to being fed ear candy by the radio stations. Timeless music has many different layers and won't wear out. Mat Kearney knows this. You can hear his love for words in every skillful line & his love for not just melody, but the dynamics required for the emotion to last. His songs speak truth and pierce straight to the heart.
Mark my words: Mat Kearney is going to be huge! The world will know who he is. He has an amazing gift & this album reflects that fact. You can hear that he is a student of music and not just out to make money or be famous.
I can only hope that music lovers around the world will recognize his talent and not just like him because they're being spoon-fed the music by top 40 stations. Do yourself a favor and buy this CD.
