Editors’ Notes

Anyone familiar with Emery's Christian screamo rock will find this side project from members Matt Carter and Toby Morrell a real sonic departure. But if the acoustic guitars and vocal harmonies of Matt & Toby seem unexpected, the duo’s lyrical themes of faith, love, and loneliness are on par with Emery’s body of work. On its own terms, the album shines with supple melodies, well-tailored production, and life-affirming spirit. Moments of pure pop joy can be found here, with “Prodigal Sons & Daughters” standing out for its celebratory chorus and electronica-tinged arrangement. Tracks like “Life of the Party” and “What Plays in My Head” combine shimmering guitars and catchy choruses with glimpses of broken families and thwarted relationships. Such dark moments are balanced by the hope found in such God-centered tunes as “Take Me Oh Lord in Thy Hands” and “Come Home.” “Good Boys” (a wistful number with an ‘80s pop feel) and “The Last One” (a story song in a country/folk vein) are strong ballad entries. Matt & Toby is a heartfelt, eminently tuneful project that deserves a follow-up.

Ballin out

Yo Yo Yo, these fellas, man, dey just ballin out wit dis album!


Man I've always loved the way Toby's voice sounded and this album just makes him way more awesome!!!


I've been an Emery fan for a long time now, and was curious enough to check out Matt and Toby's side project. After listening, I am pleased to say that Emery fans will be at home here! The melody's are fleshed out, and the lyrics are quite personal and thought provoking. Good job to these two!


Genre: Christian & Gospel

Years Active:

Comprised of Emery members Matt Carter and Toby Morrell, this project finds the pair branching off from their main gig to explore a more elaborate acoustic and electronic sound. The project's beginnings stem from the members tossing around the idea of writing an acoustic Emery record, but the idea was scrapped so that the songs could develop their own identity away from fans' preconceived notions of what that band should be....
