Even better on Brushfire
I first heard of Matt Costa from Jack Johnson's Weekend At The Greek DVD, and really came to love his music. I bought his indie album "Songs We Sing", and was excited to hear that it would be re-released on Brushfire. This time I just downloaded the songs that didn't make it on his original "Songs We Sing" album, so now my playlist has 17 tracks instead of the regular 13. Nice! I think that Matt will get wider recognition now that he's on Brushfire. Good luck Matt! Oh, and the album rocks. This new re-release seems more polished and complete than the first one. Why "These Arms" and "Ballad of Miss Kate" never made it into the first one I have no idea. Whould have been nice if "Shimmering Fields" wasn't taken out though.
A Rare Gem
Rarely does an artist come along with the rare combination of wonderful guitar melodies and a pure voice. Jack Johnson was able to several years ago and we all have been blessed by his music. Matt Costa is similar; his music falls soundly and his voice can sing you to sleep or fill you with joy. He also has variety, Astair is a slow melodic song, whereas Sunshine is upbeat. "Songs We Sing" satisfies all one can ask for in an album and then some.
Matt On iTunes!!!!!
Great album. Sunshine and Astair are personal favorites. His lyrical simplicity with great guitar parts blends together awesomely. "Lullaby" on the Curious George album is also a hit. Go see him live if you get a chance, especially if he is touring with Jack Johnson (great concert).
