I’m excited to have discovered Matt Butler, a talented singer-songwriter with a gift for crafting vivid narrative into a sweet blend of Americana and rock n’ roll.
His debut album, Reckless Son, is coming out September 9, but I am already enjoying two songs.
Matt credits Jason Isbell’s Southeastern album as a revelation, and an influence on how to deal realistically with dark, personal subject matter and frame it in a way where the music matches the intent.
Matt Butler first gained notoriety as the lead singer of the New York based band Reckless Sons, who released two Eps, the latter with legendary record producer David Kahne (Lana Del Ray, The Strokes, Sublime, Paul McCartney).
I love this guy’s voice! The first tune here, “Ride Again” is definitely catchy. I was hooked from the start.
